Gloria's Visit

It is Sunday, September 28 and all is going well. My visit with Gloria went well enough and she got to sleep a good bit (the darkness and the quiet) and go to the Christiansburg Aquatic Center (which she loved) and we took walks and ate out quite a bit (including Chateau Morrisette and Alexanders). The pain in her hands was much reduced so that was another place. I enjoyed seeing her but I think two weeks was too long. I am such a private person that having company for two weeks threw me off. I am going to see Claire on Tuesday and I am looking forward to that. My classes are going well but I still have one student in my 203 who seems to be having trouble with the class. I may make an appointment with him to chat. I am sending Emily $200 for her ru tuition even though I don’t really feel like it after the nonsense she said about me. I purchased a pump action shotgun and I feel safer with that in the house. Gloria and I had dinner with Gyorgyi twice and that was fun. I already have the house fixed up after Gloria’s visit. I planted more lettuce after one tray of peas all died and only a few of the spinach plants came up. I should know on Monday what I have left to pay on the dental work. It shouldn’t be more than $2500.

second week of the semester done

The weekend has gone well. I have all my grading done and most of the reading. I had a nice dinner with Claire on Thursday catching up on her and Luke and I have decided that things with Cecelia will continue only as friends. I played golf a couple of times and did a lot of work around my house this morning and early afternoon in order to start getting ready for Gloria. I have also been hiking almost every morning down to the orchard. I rode my bike yesterday for the first time since I hurt my knees and it went very well. My knees are improving. I had the dental surgery on Friday and it didn’t hurt much. I still owe somewhere between 3 and 4 K even after paying 2K already. Maddie is still doing well and I will try to see her this week and take her out one evening. I have been walking over at Tech at night and that is still a lot of fun for me.
