Happy Bubble 2 Me

I have my Bubble back!

About a month ago a new BCU alum stopped by my office to excitedly tell me he got a teaching job here in town. He will be the new middle school math teacher and he will make a difference in the lives of many young minds. He mentioned in passing that his apartment wouldn't be ready until a few days after he started his new job. Since he is not from here I asked him what his plans were for temporary housing. He said a sofa at a friend's apartment had been offered. I told him if he would rather have a bed with a bathroom he was welcome to stay at my home. About two weeks ago he called and asked if I was serious about the offer of the basement bedroom. He was having second thoughts about the sofa at Beau's apartment - complete with Beau's girlfriend, and Beau's dog, not to mention Beau's two other roommates. I confirmed that the offer stood and he moved in for a few days.

He was busy every evening grading papers and creating lesson plans. So...I didn't spend any time in the Bubble while he was here because I knew he was busy downstairs. Plus...he is a talker! Another reason - not to go to the basement - I didn't want to distract him from his 'homework'. I went down one evening to get something and he ended up chatting for 45 minutes and NOT grading papers. He would pop upstairs every evening and entertain me and my husband with tails of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. It was great fun having him here - even if it did mean no Bubble time for me.

Anyway - he is now ensconced in his apartment - and I have my Bubble back! My space! Let the card making begin. Unfortunately it is also the first week of school so my time in the Bubble will be limited as "Welcome Week" is hectic, long, and tedious.
