Yesterday I went to church and then came home and finished the ABNA reviews and graded papers. It was dark before I finished. I did go out at one point in the afternoon and read the paper on the porch for a bit, so I got some pleasure from the gorgeous spring day we had.
This morning I got up and gathered all the tax deductions I could think of. Well, and had records for. The Empress is going to sort it all out for me.I’m hoping I won’t have to pay anything in, and that I can figure out how to do quarterly payments this year.
So I haven’t had a very frolicsome time since last I wrote.
Today I’ll be using the computer projector in my classroom to show some useful search tricks and then — I hope — riding herd on the students while they track down some sources for their upcoming research papers.
Following this fun activity, I fully intend to get to the gym. Last week, I allowed myself to decide that I didn’t have time more than once. That’s ridiculous. So I’m packing up my gym bag and not giving myself a choice about this.
I’ve got an article to do about the local botanical gardens, so I’ll stop in there today or tomorrow to refresh my memory. And I have to go grocery shopping at some point. And then of course I am assisting in the Brits’ efforts at world domination, and otherwise caring for various clients.
So I may or may not have a frolicsome time till I next write.
I shouldn’t make it sound as though all is so serious chez fibermom. I actually watched a couple of movies last night while grading, folding, and knitting: Mama Mia and That Old Feeling. Mama Mia was self-indulgent tripe, wasn’t it? Most of the actors can’t sing, and #2 son was comically disgusted by the antics of the assorted naughty old people. Since both the movies were basically about middle-aged romance, it was hard not to see that as the theme of the evening. Young people behaving badly on camera doesn’t disgust #2 son nearly as much as old ones.
I did like the scene in which all the women on the Mediterranean isle drop their work and go dancing down to the sea.
