Irony

This is a tremendously busy time for me. Chanukah, with all of its various interchangeable spellings, starts this evening. I have a dental appointment, and then, given the state of anxiety I feel at the moment, I have decided to go on to yoga class in Laguna. When I come home, I will light the candles for another year's go at the holiday.
The irony I speak of above is this: all this time I have wanted a poetry workshop somewhere, and yesterday afternoon, I got notice that the Emeritus program at the college is seeking someone to teach workshops for them. The workshop in question is smack in the middle of one of my classes for next semester, so I cannot teach it. But it is odd the way things work.

The Emeritus program might have flexibility in their scheduling...you never know. You might want to ask.

I don't think I could handle another class next semester. But I did write to the director and tell him to think about me the next time they're looking for someone. He said he would.

Happy Chanukah, Robbi!

Thanks Lou! R. took the stuff out of the garage, so there are two menorahs with candles in them set up on the table. He promised to hang up decorations for me this evening when he returns from work.

Happy Chanukah! Hope you and your family have a blessed and joyful holiday!

Thanks Robin. I haven't done any shopping, so it will be a quiet holiday. I'll have to make some latkes or other fried foods. That's traditional. I don't like donuts, which are traditional also.
