Struggling Against the Shutting Eyes


I just finished writing the dialogue for our Friday Club. Basically I write what goes on in the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe movie so that our students will have a better grasp and be able to really soak in the story as they read and watch the scene afterwards. Normally, Emily does this job and she does it well. I finally offered to do it, and while it proved to be kinda fun, it took a lot of time and a lot of words. So my writing juice is pretty well depleted and my head is spinning with words. Luckily, I don’t have much to say today.

I was tired from not getting enough sleep for a few nights in a row and then from sleeping on the girl’s floor. I didn’t get to bed until really late last night—or maybe I should say this morning—and so it caused me to wake up extremely late this morning—or should I say this afternoon. Anyways, the moral of the story is that today turned out to be a very short day. Steven had a tutee today, I didn’t, but I went to work early with him so that I could make a quiz and continue catching up. In my spare time, I crafted up a little jeopardy game for discussion. It turned out to be a hit. Yelena was giggling as she watched me create it and commented that she loved to watch my creativity at work. I have never really thought of myself as a creative person, so I thought it was funny. I am learning to embrace my God-given gifts, however silly they might be.

Alas, I must wake up early again tomorrow morning. The rooster (my cell phone) will crow in just 6 and a half hours. Wednesday can only mean one thing—lunch at the girl’s place. Talk has started up that I will be paid soon and able to stock up on some real groceries. God gives, sometimes, just because He can. That is the thought I leave you with tonight.
