I've been slacking on the blogging front. It's even past time for my quarterly New Year's resolution check-in, but OY, I know the answers already. I'm slacking on all of them too.
Much drama in the classroom, but I can't really blog about it and the drama makes me sad sometimes anyway. One batch of midterm grades is due Wednesday and three more classes are due a week from Tuesday. I just collected 50 papers today, but still have a stack at home.
I'm ****this**** close to getting sick and have been thus for at least the last two weeks. I'm still going to the chiro for my neck from getting rear ended, although I'm ****this**** close to cutting him off just to find a few more hours for myself.
A wee bit of guilty knitting is happening, but only for a few minutes at a time. My knitting urge is only truly fulfilled when I can sit and knit for hours even days at a time.
My new camera (the one I used my summer teaching money to buy) isn't working.
At times like these, I need a good dose of the blues, so tomorrow at 7 p.m., I'll be headed over to my friend Kevin Belford's book signing for his new book, Devil at the Confluence. I've been waiting for this book to come out for a few years now and it's going to be even cooler than I had hoped, with a CD and tons of Kevin's amazing artwork. I'll even be able to afford my very own copy.
The blues always make me feel better.
