I don't have a lot of time to doodle. Things need to get done before I fly on Tuesday. Today I did the non office hours stuff. I took a drove out to Aunti Martie and Oom Willie. They were keeping some stuff for us. Mostly degrees certificates that we need to get stamped for authenticity at Foreign affairs and the UAE Embassy.

I also got papers signed I need to store my fire arms. Just to make it legal.

This is all in preparation for tomorrow. It's going to be a busy day. My mom will join me. And......my gps. very important.

The kids seem to get used to skype. But still it I will need getting used to talking to them instead of playing with them. That is a challenge.

I did not get to buy some Litchies but managed to buy a toothbrush. Talk about priorities. Which reminds me. I need to get my mom something nice to say thanks.

9:26 pm - let the adventure begin
It hit me last knight really hard. .........I'm leaving................. I'm leaving so many things behind that I have come to love and cherish. Like the family dog. Her name is Lassy. A cross between a Jack Russel and Beagle. She loves the kids, and we all love her. Our house. I left that behind as well. Were not selling, just renting. But I have lived in that semi face brick house for 9 years. Our first house. She is like my first love.

Kids and wife I will see again. So they don't count.

Today I left for Pretoria with only 2 suitcases, and a laptop. I'm going on a two year adventure and I'm tagging my family along.

The car trip lasted just over 7 hours. I drove up with Renier (wife's half brother) in his very compact little car.

Tomorrow....I have to pick up certificates so that I can get them stamped on Monday.

This was my first entry in a very long while. And so short as well. But have mercy - I have had very little sleep in the last 24 hours.

10:04 pm - Blip....blip ....the darn radar
I have been looking up old friends lately. Today I tried out my old LJ account. It still works.

My previous post was 5 years back. Do you have any idea what can happen in 5 years. A house, 2 kids, 2 cars and a hugh amount of dept.

Was the last 5 years worth living? For sure.....I know own a legacy....2 daughters.

I will be back to write more.

I was actually looking for ifwinterends. My first friend on LJ. She left - I wonder what happened to her?

current mood: sleepy

11:36 pm - No subject today
Neighbors have moved...Yeah. Fuck they were so irritating.
I have been busy all weekend with fixing this painting that packing the other thing in the box. Our baby is due in 3 weeks and I still have to do so much before then. Luckily we are on holiday. I have to go in tomorrow for an hour or two. The University has some time ago started using WebCT to facilitate the presenting of courses. It's my job to see that the system works. (Not actually Im just doing it for the fun).

8:25 am - It seems not...
to have been my last entry after all.

I have 15 minutes before .......well the rest of the day comes crashing down on me. I hatre Wednesday (and Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and the first half of Friday).

My mission for the day:
have to get 600 students tested today. (150 at a time) Fuck!

My wish for today:
To win the national lottery

My fear for today:
The computer system crashes and I sit with 600 angry students.

My looking-farward for today:
The bear at the end of it

Will be thinking of today:
Someone. I wonder how she's doing. Happy, sad or glad? Have to visit her site. And answer her email.

current mood: anxious

10:28 am - Under presure
I have so much work today. I started at 5 preparing for a lecture. I didn't do it well enough - it was a disaster. But that's behind me - in anycase its not the first time and I'm sure it wont be the last.
Furthermore I have to set a test, mark 40 scripts and prepare for another 3 classes. The worst thing about today is that I have to travel all the way to Ulundi to present the classes (150km away) so I'll only be back about 10:30 tonight.

I don't think this liver journal thing is for me. I find it extremely difficult to communicate with no-one. I am someone who likes to know who I'm dealing with. A unfiltered emotional stream......still a strange concepte to me.

What makes a journal worth having/reading. Personally I enjoy reading about other more than I like writing about myself.

This might very well be my last entry.......

9:58 am - Take the day of and relax
I'm running late today. I woke up real early to prepare for my lectures. I was so casual that I didn't keep an eye on the time. Now I'm late and bothered. And when you are running late the whole world seems to be in reverse gear - at the filling station the service is super slow, on the roads people drive like old snails Uuugh. I get so frustrated with this place sometimes. And today is one of those sometimes. Life where I live is like walking in thick sticky mud. Super-fucken-slow. Nothing works properly.

So I decided, after all the preparation, to cancel all my classes! Great I have the whole day to myself. No I lie..I have so much work on my desk...but who cares. I think I'm going to the beach! Now wouldn't that be nice (Oh I love Word's spell check). My English spelling is real bad!

Any case, if Someone is reading this. I have about a zillion questions that I want to ask you. Would you prefer I email them to you or do you want to remain public?

12:51 pm - Today
....I've seen better days than today. It's just one of those days that I had to stay in bed. Work is not enjoyable anymore like it used to be. Like the expression goes "back to the salt mines" I really feels like somone working the salt mines.

I, at least, spoke to my HOD about a third year subject that I'm not happy with. I'm not coping with that one. I don't have enough experience or knowledge to teach it. I don't even have a text book to follow. But it seems that I have no chioce. I'll have to continue.

I enjoyed Durban. Went there for the weekend. Just to do shopping. Spent two entire days in the shops.

Ooooh....look at the time. Another lecture at 1, then I'm finished for the day. How I love Tuesdays!
