I got all my Theresa-worries out to Ellen this morning, and I feel better about it. Ellen said she'd be careful to stay general, and not let Theresa know that I was the one that basically ratted on her. But, it needed to be ratted. Badly. And the rest of the office agrees with me. Coming late to a few meetings is one thing, but leaving hours early every day, flirting with your students, and making up numbers for your fiscal report is positively ridiculous. This woman should not be in that Family Literacy setting.

Right now I'm at the main branch, working on a Public Service Announcement for the International Literacy Day Fair that I am planning. This is something that will go out to the local media to let them know about what's going on. If anyone out there has DONE PSA's before, I would love to have your help and your feedback.

I'm all moved in, like I said earlier. Everything is falling into place and starting to feel like home. My mother was wonderful and bought me my first groceries. Most of my friends have come over to visit and they all like the new place, too. There's jealousy (who wouldn't want to live in such an ideal situation?) in the air, but they are mostly just really happy for me ;)

Padfoot's lovin the new place too, although he absolutely refused to go to the bathroom this morning. It was more of a "Hey, Mel? WTF are we doing out here? You expect me to pee HERE? No no. I pee at home. " type thing. So obviously he's still getting used to it. He actually seems calm next to Jaime and Shiloh's dog, Keaton. Keaton is only 8 months old and a Jack Russell to boot, so he's got lots of energy, even more than my Paddington.

The locksmith got my key to turn yesterday. He sprayed some WD-40 in the ignition, and kind of tapped the key into there more deeply, and voila! It worked several times more that night, but my dad was afraid that it would stop at any moment, so right now, my car is at Saturn, getting re-keyed most likely. I need to call the parental units on my lunch break to make sure that that went off okay. I can't wait to have Bob back. I mean, the Short Bus (my dad's minivan...) is great... but it's just not Bob. And I'm sure my dad can't wait to have a car again either (its much easier for him to get rides when he's in one place all day than for me, since I work in like three places every day).

I should really get back to work. I have to finish this and then go visit some elementary schools this afternoon to drop off/pick up flyers before heading over to the Dr. B.L. Perry branch. No GED site visits today!

Oh, and I don't get off at 6 today like I thought. There's a board meeting this evening. Starts at 5:45, but obviously I have to be late because I'll be working at Perry till 6. I probably won't get off till 7:30 or 8 :(
