It’s been a crazy two months. Yvonne, Mom, and I went back to Taiwan in April and placed Dad in his final resting place. Mom stayed with Grandma and Grandpa until the middle of May and returned to the US on May 21st.

In the meantime, Peter finished thirteen performances of the musical, 42nd Street at the Waukesha Civic Theatre. The show turned out really well.  It played to sold out crowds and quite a few standing ovations.

 

Dad: 3/15/54 – 3/17/2009

Dad passed away shortly after 12 o’clock noon today.

He left very peacefully with the whole family gathered around.  A service will be held on Saturday, March 21st at Zwaska Funeral Home on Bradley Rd in Milwaukee.

Thank you to everyone for your continued love and support.  Dad was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

 

Peter’s Update!

A message from at 7:18pm about Jobs, Peter. Comments Off.

It’s been nine months since my last update. I figured it was time to log in and make one.

First, I have a job! (Sort of.) Since October, I have been a substitute teacher in several school districts covering classes from kindergarten through eighth grade in a variety of subjects including: Physical Education, Art, Music, Orchestra, Technology Education, and most recently, Spanish. (If you were wondering, I don’t speak any Spanish.)

In May, I get promoted to a long-term sub, meaning I will be a substitute teacher in the same classroom for the remainder of the school year. Woo! Except it comes with no benefits. Boo!

All the experience I’m getting will hopefully translate into a full-time, contracted job offer for the 2008-09 school year. Wish me luck!

In other news, the cornea transplant has gone smoothly. I go in for my not-quite-1-year follow-up next week, at which we will discuss the removal of stitches from my cornea. (Ew!) Just my luck that this will all happen during the end of the school year, beginning of summer school, and teacher-interview season.
