We did everything except the face, which was provided for us (presumably to save time). As always, I worked quite slowly, and I wound up finishing absolutely last.
Monday morning, I called home and spent quite a while on the phone. This resulted in megory offering to pay for me to fly back to Michigan for the holidays.
Then I stepped outside to go to work and discovered that winter had suddenly pounced. My hands were burning with cold by the time I got to school (across the street) and trains were delayed due to strong winds. (That said, the temperature was still slightly above freezing.) At night a thunderstorm rolled in that continued until morning.
Today started with the head of the English department showing up at my desk.
Teacher: Your team teacher won't be here today, so please do something for first period.
So, an unexpected solo class first period, no problem. I then freaked out two of my teachers by saying I would take a vacation for the last three days of classes. They managed to come to terms with it, however. I haven't spoken with the other three teachers yet, but after the surprise solo classes I've done, including the one just this morning, I feel no guilt.
