I think I have mentioned before how much I despise the night before a trip. I am almost ready for bed though, so it looks like this one is not as unpleasant as I thought it would be. Here is the update:
DELIGHTFUL: I remembered that my final assignment for my ESOL course is due tomorrow and got a copy of a test for ELL students to write a review on.
DISTRESSING: The type of test I got will not work for my paper.
DELIGHTFUL: Our wonderful Spanish teacher has agreed to meet me early before school in the morning so I can quickly write my paper.
DELIGHTFUL: I am teaching a half day tomorrow.
DISTRESSING: I have to leave sub plans for an unknown person. And we are not really teaching much yet. What do I leave for them to do?
DELIGHTFUL: I am almost done with the aforementioned sub plans.
DELIGHTFUL: I am missing my long afternoon without any specials.
DISTRESSING: I have to write sub plans for a long afternoon without specials.
DELIGHTFUL: I do not have to follow the sub plans for a long afternoon without specials.
DELIGHTFUL: I can check in for my flight on southwest.com
DISTRESSING: The printer is out of ink, so I cannot print boarding passes.
DELIGHTFUL: We got the tickets for a good price.
DELIGHTFUL: I have packed a suitcase full of clothes.
DISTRESSING: I still have no idea what to wear to my class reunion on Saturday.
DELIGHTFUL:Bags fly free on Southwest so I can afford to bring a big suitcase with lots of clothing options.
DELIGHTFUL: I get to spend the weekend in Houston.
DELIGHTFUL: I get to bring the Irishman with me.
DELIGHTFUL: I get to catch up with family and friends.
I guess the DELIGHTFUL out number the DISTRESSING!
Confession: I typed up this list as GOOD/BAD and then decided that I needed to expand my vocabulary. I will confess that I implored the use of a thesaurus to continue my endeavor toward a broader vocabulary.
