I made it!
I’m sitting in my living room, trying form the words to describe Torreón. As I was flying into Torreón, all I could think of was that cartoon Durango. Remember how they just stumble around the desert looking for water? That’s life in Torreón.
Today was our first day of school. Whew! The first day always knocks me down. Luckily, I only have 19 students! Big change from my classrooms of the last four years! I’ve got some stinkers (haha, auto-correct tried to make that “drinkers”), but their children seem great! Just kidding, second grade is always full of some boogers who like to test the limits.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow. We have bible study (in Exodus), and it’s pretty close by! I’ve been in contact with about fifty workers. Technically, I wrote one–and he replied to me and many others. I sure do miss my friends at Downings, but we have our own convention this Tuesday!
It’s hot as can be here, and luckily they replaced the motor on my swamp cooler today. Unfortunately, that’s because it broke last night. I was a bear… I think I took three showers to cool down through the night. I even dreamt of what to say to them today. Weird.
I guess hot and grumpy Jania has returned. Someone get me an air conditioner ASAP (or I may lose my husband before long!)
