Almost April

Our internet was fixed Thursday night. I’m not sure how I managed to live without internet for 12 days, but I did get a lot of work done on my Lesson Plans page and French & German Comparative Tutorial.

Some of my classes were cancelled yesterday because parents “sequestered” the teachers in the building as a protest against… something important? I only have 8 more actual days of work left thanks to the two week vacation in April.

My car can be fixed, but it will cost 800-1,000 €. We’re going to do it though because buying another automatic car would take months and cost a lot more than that. Plus I miss my little Renault. I want her back. She’s in nearly perfect condition except for the motor that will be replaced.

I’m feeling better now that March is almost over. Now if only I could find a job that pays well… or win the lottery…

    In France, you probably have a better chance of winning the lotto, than finding a well paying job. That being said; we don’t always get what we want, but we usually get what we need. Something will work out.

    All classes were canceled in my area on Friday because of teacher meetings to protest the government’s new plans for school programs during the 2008-2009 academic year. New government = new strikes.
