Things I have done today, not necessarily in order:
bought cat food
driven 120 miles
got an oil change
finished grading quizzes, including locating some that had wandered off
checked proofs of a book review
submitted a sample translation to an editor
entered grades in spreadsheet
computed final grades
submitted final grades
received a gift from my students! (first time that has ever happened for a regular semester course)
put together illustrations for my Kalamazoo paper
printed my Kalamazoo paper
And now I will go home, arriving past my bedtime, and sometime either tonight or tomorrow morning I will pack. I have to pick up a friend at the airport tomorrow just past noon, and I’m hoping we can leave from there . . . so I’m sure I’ll wind up with either too much or too little stuff packed. But what this all adds up to, not that I can believe it right now, is that I’M DONE with the spring semester.
I’m not sure if this means PARTAY at the ZOO or just s.l.e.e.p t.h.r.o.u.g.h the c.o.n.f.e.r.e.n.c.e. . . . . either one would have its points!
