The paper's out of here, and so am I....

I finished my conference paper last night and sent it out.... 37 pages, over 12,000 words and 82 endnotes... it is kind of a monster.... but, it has a lot of work to do.

I have a sneaking suspicion the conference is going to extend the deadline and I'll get an e-mail making me feel like my students feel when I give an extension (note to self ... NO EXTENSIONS this semester! that feeling sucks!).

Today Hubby and I head to Red State together for a week... We'll drive down together in a Jeep full of books (seriously, we aren't sure there'll be room for my suitcase...)..... and I'll fly back next Monday.

The kitties will have Auntie S take care of them ---- and, when I get home they'll be irritable with me.

While I'm in Red State I have plans.... I'll write syllabi and start class prep, I'll make a couple of trips to the salon, I'll see Dr. Advisor and eat some Indian food... In short, I'll do all the fun stuff Red State has to offer.....
