No particular topic today…just writing off the top of my head
Today is one of those days where no particular topic appealed to me, so I’m just going to be writing off the top of my head. Sometimes those can be some of the most entertaining pieces to craft.
I delivered Meals on Wheels today on my regular route. I’m getting more familiar with the homes I visit and the route took the least amount of time for me today. I delivered thirteen meals and finished in under an hour. The two routes that I’ll be running the second and third weeks in August will be in a different part of town, so every delivery day is an adventure. Thank goodness for GPS!
It looks like we’re getting ready to get a big-time summertime storm. Temperatures were in the low nineties today, so it’ll be a welcome relief from the heat. I guess it’s a product of getting older, but it seems like the really hot temperature days have a more tiring effect on me than they used to.
I’m on day nine of not smoking and the cravings still occur at semi-regular intervals, especially when first waking in the morning and after meals. I had a discussion with two friends last night, both of who are former smokers, and they gave me some helpful hints on how to deal with the urges to smoke.
In just a matter of weeks, it’s going to be time to head back to the classroom. I’ve accepted an interim position for an eighth-grade science teacher who’s going to be out for eight weeks or so on maternity leave. I’m looking forward to getting back into the school year routine. The school I’ll be working at is the same school I retired from in 2010, so it’s back to the old haunting grounds once more.
That’s all for right now…we did, by the way, get that torrential downpour I was mentioning earlier. It’s always nice to get a break from the summertime heat. I’m sure the sun will be back in full force tomorrow.
