Winter ends, Spring begins next week.
I am woefully unprepared for what the next week will bring (and the week after that). I’m glad I taught this Winter session class, but I feel like my break went into that cavernous space pictured above (a black hole). So, next week the Winter session is coming to an end and the Spring semester is getting started at my other campus and on Friday, I’m flying out to Missouri to a tournament. Then, I come back and the Spring semester starts at the other campus and I have to have those Winter session grades in.
I was feeling relatively on top of things as the Winter session started, but that has quickly faded. Between grading, prepping for Spring classes, figuring out the long list of things I need to do for the Spring semester for other activities I help with on campus and an added aspect of hiring an intern (who hopefully will help me with all these other activities I have going on so I can focus on teaching and coaching) is really starting to stress me out a bit.
As an added bit of challenge, because all of that is not enough, my DD has a pretty bad cold. So far, she hasn’t run any big fevers or anything, but she does have a pretty nasty cough and a very stuffy nose. I probably should have taken her to the pediatrician yesterday, but it was the first day of it and I wasn’t sure it wasn’t allergies because we’ve been having some pretty erratic weather (upper 60s, sunny, then rainy for a day, then back to upper 60s), but now I’m sure it is a cold. So, I may have to put a visit to the prompt care this weekend as well. Sigh…she is having to miss the first birthday party a classmate invited her to today, which kind of sucks. But, such is life.
Anyways, I should get back to grading, prepping and cleaning my total disaster of a house. I really wanted to start the Spring semester with a clean house and a positive outlook. But, I think I’ll have to settle for starting the Spring semester. Period.
How about you? What’s your weekend looking like?
