Hmmm.

Wow, it's amazing how quickly time passes when you're not doing much of anything.... Other than my summer course, I don't really have anything to keep me busy yet. (I'm still looking for another part-time job, but I haven't landed anything yet.)

I'm currently doing a little work with the Totus Tuus program--just behind the scenes stuff. (I taught with the program here in the Tulsa diocese last year. I also taught in other places a few other years too.) My living room looks like half a dozen supply tubs erupted, spewing their contents over nearly everything in sight. I was hoping to have the tubs all put together by Friday, but that just didn't quite happen. Now I'm hoping to finish them by tomorrow. Jimmy and I will be doing some other stuff with and for the Totus Tuus groups this coming week, so that will probably keep me busy....

Jimmy and I went up to Manhattan (Kansas) for a wedding this weekend. One of his friends from school married one of my friends from school. (It was a Totus Tuus wedding too.) We went up on Friday, so we got to spend a little time wandering through Aggieville and just hanging out, which was nice. I also got to see quite a few people over the weekend, some of whom I hadn't seen in a while. Overall we had a nice trip, though I still haven't managed to finish my East of Eden audiobook (only 2 1/2 disks left). The only big not-so-nice thing about the trip was that my car decided not to cooperate on the way home. We stopped in Independence, and when it was time to get back on the road again the car decided it didn't want to go. Some very nice people with jumper cables helped us, and we got back safely. However, my car won't start again. I'm thinking (hoping) that it's just the battery, and I'll be taking it in to the car doctor sometime today or tomorrow.

I got a new battery today, and my car is happy again.

Silly girl, cars don't have emotions.

Odd question but I have tried unsuccessfully to locate an audiobook of East of Eden on CD. Where did you find your copy? Thanks!

TL, I actually borrowed the copy of _East of Eden_ from the local public library. Most larger public libraries (or college/university libraries) can interlibrary loan things like that if you only need them for a short time. I wouldn't know where to purchase something like that; audiobooks really aren't in my budget....

(The recording I had, which was really good, was read by Richard Poe. The ISBN# is 1402566484.)
