Bad Blogger, no biscuit

Hi y'all.

It's been a while, and yeah, the brick wall is still there.  But I seem to have made some progress.  At least, the bricks seem a little softer. Today, anyway.

I'm still broke (even broker, actually, as we dropped big $$ on car repairs this weekend), politics are still bleak, and work still sucks the big one.

But I am slowly being productive, one activity at a time, and working through a million small things on my desk.  Which is a big-ass mess.  As usual.  And the office furniture order never went through, so I have the same pathetic used furniture. But I continue to make do.  I am there right now, actually. Taking a much needed 5 minute break between activities, as I had meetings right through lunch.

Who am I kidding, I never take lunch time.  I'd rather finish my tasks and go home earlier.

I have a pile of stuff to grade including quizzes, problem sets, and test corrections from both General and Cell Biology, a reflective essay to work on for the accreditation stuff I have been assigned, and a faculty association to run.  Plus I have a lecture to prep for tomorrow.

And when I get a chance to come up for air, I have a husband, two puppies, choir rehearsal and the pool.

So you can understand why I haven't been blogging much.  I am around though and wanting very much to opine, but I just don't seem to have the time.  I have to schedule trips to the gas station these days, so blogging is mostly right out.

So what I guess I am trying to say is I miss you guys, things are better, and I appreciate your kind thoughts over the last week.  That's definitely what got me through.

I'll be in and out, check back soon :-)

Well, other than grading papers... you've rather described my work life. I can barely see out from under the pile I have to get through. *sigh* Hope your load lightens a bit very soon!

Taking care of life...boo, hiss.

Still, it's better than the alternative.
