Hectic but unpacked - sort of
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      4 comments

DH and I tend to wander around a lot, so we've been doing some of that. We aren't in the greatest neighborhood, but things are fine during the day and we're taking taxis at night, so while it's safer, well, I'm not getting as many steps as we u... Read more

Uneventful flights, despite only 40 minutes between flights in Miami - luckily the two gates weren't very far apart. Met DH's niece at the airport here, she took us to our hotel, which is modest but nice and cheap! And owned by Israelis! ... Read more
Almost had a panic at the wall today!

I took my first class up to the wall for our new mural today - it's on the outside of the music building, right by the auditorium, and visible across the school. Armed with yardsticks, tape measure, a ladder, and markers, we trudged across ... Read more
