Oh my, it was hard getting back into the swing of things. Knowing that I had to get up and get moving on time in the middle of the night (5:15am) meant I slept horribly because I was checking the clock every 20 minutes, afraid that I had missed reveille. Turns out I didn't miss the alarm -- I was up on time and we left on time and made it to school on time -- but the end result was the hours of sleep I got last night were countable on the fingers of one hand (if you were missing a few fingers. And your thumb)
Tomorrow will be the first foray north for winter semester teaching. I expect it to be a short day, which helps with the whole "reentry" aspect of the month of January. Overall, it's going to be a fairly busy month, which means it will be necessary to get organized and do it in a timely fashion (two skills I am decidedly lacking).
So, before I nod off only to wake and discover my forehead imprinted with QWERTY in the morning, I bid the Internets goodnight.
I do that too! Anytime I need to get up unusually early, I end up not sleeping at all.
