At 5:05 AM, Stubby, our univited kangaroo rat, flew home. I emptied out my kitchen drawers, but different types of traps in each one, and finally caught him in another glue trap. I grabbed my tongs, picked him up, looked at his tail just for fun (it was about an inch long, with a little scab), and then prompty flung him out the door. He sailed over the fence and into the bushes. It was a decent flight. It felt good to have the critter out of my trailer, and I hope never to see him again. Or any of his kind. I looked in the area where I flung him later this morning, and he was no where to be found.
I am hoping for a really boring rest of the week. It is going to be filled with dishes and a huge amount of laundry. I am registering for an online class with the local Jr. college so I can get a supplemental authorization to be able to teach English/Language Arts in Jr. High or 9th grade. It should be fun, and since I like to read, and I tolerate writing, it shouldn't be too much of a burden. I tried taking an Educator course in grading writing/using rubrics from the University of San Diego, and no offense to teachers or anything, but it was awful. Lame. Something that a person should already know. And I didn't try very hard and still got an A. To me, that's sad. I've thought about getting a Master's degree in Education because they are easy to get (compared to say Chemistry, Math, English...or another "real" subject) but I don't know if I can jump through any more hoops. That, and I don't want to spend the money or time right now. Money to buy house stuff, time for the family.
