Ready, but not ready...

The syllabi are done, copied and in my office.

I have the first few weeks of class prep done.

but ---- I'm not intellectually ready to start class.... and I don't think I will be soon.

This week is 'odd' because my mom will be here tomorrow for a visit. The nice thing about mom's visit is that she'll do my laundry and help me figure out where to put the pictures... but, she's out of the normal, so it will be odd...

Next week I'm going to a conference someplace warm -- I leave on Wednesday... another 'odd' week...

So, while I'll have three teaching days between now and then, I really don't have to be ready to settle in for the long -haul of the semester until I get back from the warm place, right??

As it is, today is a long day -- but not tragically long -- my first class is at 11:00 and the last one ends at 9:00....

So, wish me luck and strength to do another semester. I'm hoping things will go quickly between now and the end of next month -- because March will let me have the illusion that hubby and I almost live together, as our spring breaks don't overlap at all....
