This was a good week. Everything seemed easier after slogging through a buncha mud and then washing it off in a mud tent with a garden hose.
The weather's been great. I love fall and have been enjoying the cooler temperatures with crisp early mornings. I like to include a "photo from the week" for these Sunday posts, and this week's is yet another grainy cell phone pic from this morning's bike ride.
I took it towards the end of my ride, near the area of Meego Falls. Another beaut of a morning!
In work news, the tutor schedule is quite full and I'm looking forward to wrapping up another round of college entrance test prep this month. My students who took their tests in September got their results this week, and I was blessed with some very nice e-mails. They all did so well! *sniff*, I'm so proud of them.
I've mentioned how I've learned to say "no" so as to avoid over scheduling myself, and I've gotten pretty good at it if I do say so myself. I had resolved to accept no more new students until the October test cycle is finished, but then I got this in my inbox this morning:
"hi Abby So this is my situation i haven't been in school in almost 8 years im trying to get in to collage and i have to take an assessment test and well i dont really remember much when it comes to my math and as you can see my writing is well shatty at best so i would really need a brain over hall and have to relearn alot of stuff so if your up to it it would really be apreashated"
Well now how can I say "no" to that?! What a hoot! (I admire his truthfulness)
Wolfgang set another PR at this week's cross country meet, which also moved him a couple of spots up the depth chart. They've got a really strong team this year.
In movie news, we watched "Chaos Theory" which was blah. We watched "The Grey" which I surprisingly ended up liking after thinking it would be a good napping opportunity. It seems to be another love-it-or-hate-it movie. Not many middle of the road reviews. I found it to be quite spiritual, in a horrible kind of way. Magnum didn't much care for it. *SPOILER ALERT* "Meh, everybody dies".
