Eventful Monday

Today I started my first week of not teaching the Geometry class anymore!! I am sooooooo excited about that one!! I am an English teacher not a Geometry teacher. A math teacher finally became available to take the class off of my hands!! No longer will I be studying for an hour or more each night just to go in and teach the next day's lesson. Plus, I am now home everyday by 10:30. NO MORE GEOMETRY is what I am thankful for today.

After I taught my classes today, I went to a big children's clothing sale with Cate, a lady from our church, and out to lunch at a local diner. I enjoy going to diners. The food was so good, and there was a lot of it. Aaron kept the kids for us while we went shopping.

I am tutoring again also. I tutor for one hour on Monday and one hour on Thursday and an occasional extra hour. I make $20 an hour for tutoring, so it is a little extra spending money each week. I am using it to buy the kids' winter church clothes and some Christmas presents.

One thing I haven't mentioned on here yet is Justus' sickness. He has had a rough week. Last Wednesday night his fever shot up to 106. He got to a point where he wouldn't wake up and respond to me. We took him to the ER. He tested positive for RSV. He also has tonsillitis. His fever stayed up around 103 until Friday night. He was also vomitting and having awful diarrhea. He is now on some breathing treatments a couple of times a day. He does alright during the day now, but the nights are rough. His breathing is more labored at night. Today has been a good day for him though, so maybe tonight will be too.

Tonight Aaron is at the Saints Monday night game in New Orleans. He went with Joe, Cate's husband. I am at home with all of the youngins. Aaron rented a carpet cleaner for the day, so I am off to clean some carpet. Have a good night.

Oh Rachel, I am so sorry about Justus. I have said a prayer for him and will continue to lift him.
