The main reason I don't teach full time is the exhaustion factor! I'm finished with my 4 days in middle school & have a little over 4 hours today in grade school, then I'm taking a 5 day weekend...at least! I've been having a good time, but I definitely need some "chill time."
Chill time = knitting time too. Here's my pitiful progress on Amelie:
I should finish the back today & cast on for a front. Tiredness + icky yarn = less progress than I'd hoped. My goal is to have the two fronts finished before I go back & knit on "Cabaret." It's very close to being done - Cabaret that is - just the raglan shaping on the sleeves, sew it together & finish the neckline. Maybe this weekend I'll have another FO. That would give me a much needed lift while going back to knitting on Amelie!
I have no words for what's happened in our southern Gulf states. I don't think anyone realized that Katrina would bring our worst natural disaster ever. All the dead, the homeless, the utter devastation - it's mind-boggling. A teacher from our school was called away with FEMA to Louisiana - I had to sub her class part of the day - she has no idea how long she'll be gone. It amazes me how far-reaching the effects will be.
I'll be holding good thoughts for those laid low by this tragedy while finding out how else I can help.
