First, the Cardinals are facing off against the Tigers in the World Series. This is upping the tension level at home. If you don't know why that might be, let me explain: I grew up in Detroit. My husband spent most of his life in the St. Louis area. Now, I'm not a big sports person. However, when the stakes are high I do enjoy rooting for my hometeam. What's wrong with that? Apparently because I am not a "real" fan I should not be allowed to cheer for the Tigers now. He insists that I shouldn't cheer for them because it's not that important to me. I really don't know. It isn't that important, but I think it would be cool if the Tigers won. Because it's not that important I don't think it should matter who I root for. I don't think it should be a big deal, it's just a game. But I don't think my husband feels that way. And I never thought I would marry someone who did feel that way. So it's kind of weird for me. But is it wrong for me to want the Tigers to win or should I just shut up and not talk about it anymore? My mom is sending me a Tigers baseball cap. I think I'll put it on my desk at school.
Second, I'm thinking about teaching a Crafts class as an elective at school next semester. I'm pretty excited about it. We'll probably learn to knit, crochet, macrame, make candles and/or soap, make beaded jewelry, and maybe do some sculpting with styrofoam stuff (actually I'm thinking about using those blocks that you stick fake flowers in, they're soft enough that it would work pretty well, I think.) I'm still working on getting the write up ready for the board to approve it, but I might do it next semester if I can get some donations and stuff. Lots of students seemed interested in it.
I'm getting tired just sitting here so I think I'll end this a little early.
