The college kids have returned, so our town just gained an extra 45,000 people. Teaching starts up this week, and goes into full swing next week. Sadly, I can't see my class list, so tomorrow will be a pleasant Forest Gumpian box of chocolates surprise. High School has resumed with a vengeance, and there is simultaneous preparation for finals (2 weeks), exams (this week), large-scale projects (this time it's an abbreviated film of "The Tempest". No, I don't understand why), musical performances, competitions, chair-tests, lessons, homework, and a Sadie Hawkins dance thrown in for good measure.
January has become the new December!
On the plus side, I walked out of work at 5:15pm today and it wasn't pitch black outside, I managed not to shove any junk food down my gullet, and by all indications, I'll be in bed before midnight. I'll call that a win any day of the week.
Oh, and did I mention it's really, really COLD? (I know. January. Duh)
My feet are very grateful that I brought in the reinforcements. (BooYAH!)
