This and that.

Classes start Monday. There is a lot I have yet to do here in Florence, but classes starting will help me fill my time. Plus, I'm excited to start learning and doing intellectual 'stuff' again and have, hopefully, a turn-around successful semester.

In other news, we can't get our washing machine to work. My clothes have been sitting there all day in hopes that the thing will just start working. But I doubt that will happen. I read the directions, I did what they told me, but to no avail. Italy wins again and I'm out of clean socks.
