Yesterday I checked in at noon to see what my status was. I read that I should check back at 5:00. I checked at 5:00 PM. It said to check at noon again today. Being the impatient person that I am, I checked earlier than that. By a little after 11:00 I already saw they had updated my group number’s status and I am now supposed to check in again today at 5:00.

In other words, I don’t have to go in today, nor did I have to go in yesterday. I’m going to guess I won’t go in at all, since they are closed on Thursday and Friday. (And yes, I knew that when I said I wanted to move my jury duty to this week.) In any case, I didn’t have to cancel a single student. So that’s good news. For me at least.

I’m not sure what my students think! :-)

Now I just have to deal with the very noisy guys who are working on my yard. For a while it got extremely quiet and I wondered if they had already finished, but then I realized they were on lunch break. Now I’m hearing a lot of machines. My oboe students may be competing with the lovely sound of chain saws and leaf blowers, along with that munching machine that chomps up all the stuff they’ve been hauling out.

There is light in our living room! I can see the backyard through a window that was completely covered by a plant. It’s quite nice, even while it’s noisy.
