9/6 Labor Day

A lazy Monday, babying my foot. I worked at CSz for 11 hours on Saturday and the stupid foot still hurts. Despite that, I had a great time, and trained new gal Marcy for the job. She's only 16 and I had to focus her on the job every now and then, but she picked up quickly. The neatest thing was that she told me what a good teacher I was, more than once. That felt great. Hope we work together again.

Other than going grocery shopping on Sunday, I stayed off my foot all day. So it should be getting better--it should it should it should it should.

Football season is about to start and I'm thrilled. Not only do I love watching it, but I'm in two football pools. One, at work, is for money, but the other, with CSz friends, is just going to be plain fun.

Rob and Beata called from Okinawa yesterday with news that they were in the middle of a Category 5 typhoon, and of course they loved it. Rob and I share that weirdness, Jill too. My mom would sit out on the porch with me during big storms and we'd just marvel at the power of it, and how cool it was. R and B still don't know when they're getting back to the states but we're all hoping it's before Christmas.

Jill just emailed to say they got a new computer and she'd be offline for a while since she was transferring all the data. I love that my daughter is a wonk.
