RM - sending logs of to him and your family.
MelW--hope the transition back to routine isn't too hard.
Nic--that's what I hate about conferences: tons of sitting, few breaks and intense topics.
tjsmama--woot for a run and swim. I don't think it's control-freak behavior when the space isn't that big, yk? For example, my in-laws drive me less crazy when they're at our house where I don't see the fact that they're apparently incapable of making their bed or hanging up towels unless I'm trying to get to my office or the laundry room, but at the trailer it's really, really obvious especially because we let them hang (or rather, "drape randomly") their towels in the main bathroom.
RR: 22 on the bike today before coming back down to the Front Range.
NRR: For the first time in 11 years, I don't have a class to teach in the fall. This afternoon my chair called: they had to cancel the class because only three students had signed up, and they don't have any other sections for me. Ugh. When we got home I peaked at the schedule and it looks like they canceled three sections, including both evening ones. I guess that's a comfort. I don't know if I'm more frustrated by the fact that I feel like I've been pushed out or whether I'm frustrated that perhaps I've been refusing to read the writing on the wall and get applications to other area colleges sooner. Probably both. I don't know that I've been pushed out (two of my sections disappeared two years ago), but time will tell. We have a new department chair--he's the one who originally hired me, so that might work in my favor. Or not.
