I thought that the Christmas holidays would be a time to relax and take stock. I did manage a post of plans, but I don’t have a lot of time off.
First, there was a week after the finals were in and graded. That was a blessing. I actually read about twenty books, for fun, and wrote a chapter for a book.
Then four days of traveling to Arkansas.
We got home tonight and then tomorrow I am leaving for the airport at 5 a.m. to get to MLA a bit late.
I’ll be there till Thursday afternoon when I am flying home. I’ll be home for three days.
Then I’ll be caring for my parents for five days. (My father had a stroke and my mother is in radiation for breast cancer.)
After that, there’s a weekend and school starts.
The BAD news is that I haven’t finished creating the online course that I have to have up and running. I really thought the holidays would be less busy. Silly me.
The good news is that I got the chapter for the book done, I was able to visit my in-laws, and I somewhat feel like myself again after some pretty intense reading for fun.
