Back to Work

Although I struggle with calling work a simple joy -- mostly because it is rarely simple, and not often a joy -- it is a relief to be out of the house with a purpose. I managed to make several sojourns during my time off, but most of them involved me inventing a reason to leave rather than a necessary errand.

It is also nice to see my colleagues again -- thus far, all seem refreshed; while not eager for the students to return to us tomorrow, we are, at least, somewhat less grim-faced and teeth-clenched than when they left. I have to finish up grades this afternoon, as well as start planning for the 2nd semester and spending some quality time with the copier.
