off to school...

"Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight."

Adam had orientation on Saturday and then I got to attend the family open house with him. Here is a picture of Adam on his 1st day of school.

Today Powers and I missed our 3rd musketeer. Adam was at school and I talked to a dog about laundry and a competitive swimmer girl who was in the lane next to me at the Y today. Powers is the best listener. Then I had my 2nd interview for the admissions counselor job. I will know Wednesday. So, if come Wednesday, I don't write "hey, i got the job!" then don't be like, "hey, did you get the job?? did you hear yet?" because then I'll have to be like "oh, um yeah. i got it. but then i decided that i wanted to go into carpentry instead, so i turned it down."

How did the interview go? Well, I don't know. I mean thats a hard question. I didn't say anything outrageous or use any obscene slurs. Did the interviewer break out into song and dance?
well, close.
no, actually not close.
summary: the interview went pretty well! i liked the higher ups.

moving on. adam is studying right now. we're going to have to turn our huge quantities of time together from this summer into QUALITY time. hey-o! and that we will. He's a hard studyier. studdier? studier? student. he studies hard. however you want to say it. the point is, he's working hard. and i am catching up on my correspondence. so, there. a final quote to celebrate adam's 1st week of class. from the most thought-provoking, intelligent, daring movie of our age.

"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

My daughter is also studying from the beginning of September. It will be very hard for me without her, but I'm glad for her. School at us begins tomorrow. I don't feel like going back to school, because I haven't had any rest during the school-holidays. But I have to go, because I'm a teacher.
