Wednesday I had a faculty meeting. It went okay, and I was calm through the whole thing. We talked about retreat, mostly. Mark E. walked by outside, so I finally got to, at least, see him! It was decided that Mark would go on the retreat. Karl, of course, put his two cents worth in, by saying "that's too bad" (that he's going) "because I have a personal problem with him." (What a jerk- just because Mark couldn't stay one month extra before returning to America, so that Karl could finish school. Mark's mom was having problems at the time, and Mark's term was officially up, anyway. Plus, why didn't just L. Lee come & Karl come later?!). Anyway- we were supposed to have E.S. S. rehearsal at 12, but they didn't come until 1, & we had to cancel. Grrr.
Thursday E.S.S. met from 9 - 1. Tomoko was the only one that showed up. Tomomi had a test, and came at 11:00. Chinatsu overslept, I had to call her. Michiyo- who knows?!
Kayo came for a lesson at 5.
Friday was Hinomoto graduation. Ike picked me up, and we went and sat together. It was long, and pretty dull. Afterwards we left. They gave us a bento, but Mike said it was all fishy junk, so I threw mine out.
(not the actual bento)
During the afternoon I designed sweaters I'd like to make, and drew some pictures. I taught my last class before spring break (but hopefully forever) at Megumi. We had a little party afterwards. I walked home with L. Lee.
Saturday I took pictures for a (ha ha) modeling portfolio. (Actually, I want to model, but the material I had to work with wasn't that great.)(ha!)
Barrett stopped by, luckily, as I was finishing, and we talked for awhile. He left, and I went to meet Mike and Resa. We went to Murasaki, then to Daigeki Palace to see "Rain Man". It was a really fun evening. The movie was great, and the food was great. too.
Sunday I slept in. Mom and dad called. I left at 1, and went to Sannomiya to look around at Tokyu Hands and Maruzen.
I went to Rokko and ate at Sun Kotobuki. Everyone was late for choir, again. We had singles bible study. I ordered a case of croutons and a case of Carnation Instant Breakfast. They finally came, and I brought a suitcase to carry it all home.
Today I got up at 7:15, to teach the once a month class at the business school in Fukuzaki. It went fine. The taxi driver let me off at Mitsubishi Bank. I took care of business there, ate at McDonalds, went to Daiei to buy a gift for the S.U.B. party tomorrow.
I stopped by the plant sale at Otemae Park, and actually didn't buy anything!
I cleaned this afternoon, and Kayo came at 5:00. Tonight we looked at pictures for part of the time (unplanned). Next week, we'll do the same...it was fun!
Tonight Chinatsu stopped by to say that Michiyo wasn't coming to the rehearsals this week. I was going to call her and tell her to either come, or not be in the show, but think I'll just wait. If she shows, fine, if not, she's out. No warning- nothing! Grrr!
