No, that's not a typo. You know how in some books there are pages in the front before the book really starts? They're numbered i, ii, iii, iv, and so on. Yesterday was day i. We've moved the trailer out of storage into Yucaipa Regional Park, where we're staying for 3 nights before we hit the road. This way we can load everything into it, make lists of what we still need from the house, and I can go to work 5 minutes away instead of 20.
So I took off from work around 2 and joined Don over at the park. He'd set up an hour or so earlier. We enjoyed sitting outside in the cool shade for a while, set up the TV and satellite dish, ate a dinner of chicken, rice a roni, and salad, and then relaxed in the evening before he crashed early. He was tired. I stayed up and watched TV until 11, and did a little stitching on a colorful owl cross stitch piece.
The night was great for sleeping - must have gotten down in the low 50s. I had to close the windows because it was almost too chilly. I'm so glad we put the two memory foam pads on the bed in the trailer - it's so comfortable that it's not an adjustment at all.
So, today is day ii, I'm at work (working hard, can you tell?) until noon. Then I've been invited to lunch with the high school English Department. If I hadn't become president I'd be teaching with them, so it's very kind of them to include me in their end-of-year lunch. There are 4 of them, plus me, retiring, and Patrick will be leaving to be president - so there will be big changes.
That's it for now. Only 1 more day of my career after today.
