Well, got the word last night that my services will be needed as a sub teacher for next Monday. I've gotta go down to the school in a few hours to pick up the regular teacher's materials. It'll be nice to be back in the saddle again after 6 weeks of layover. At this point, any paying gig will be welcome. Plus, I've got a Skype lesson tomorrow with Mr. Moriya in Japan, and all those translation assignments from Cozy. The thing about my Japan jobs, though, is how to get that income over without breaking my clients' wallets. There is Paypal, though I heard that changing digital money over to the real stuff also entails a not-so-small fee.
The parentals are off in Niagara to visit the casino. Not great weather outside but since slots is an indoor activity, I'm not too concerned.
Spoke with my old student who lives off in Missisauga. She was part of my teaching circle back in Chiba until her husband got transferred over her for work 6 years ago. I'll be visiting her next week for coffee.
