It's a new day...

What a difference a day makes.  This is the reason you should write things down daily, so you can follow your moods and see that it doesn't stay "that" way forever.  It was another beautiful Hum. Co. day.  Probably got up to about sixty five? Beautiful.  I only worked at school, no online grading, a huge relief.  I will have a few more weekends in May but then I'm off pretty much all summer!  I left school soon enough that I had time to putter around the house, cook dinner and can now relax. Of course, I should be grading papers, but I most likely won't get those done until this weekend so why stress??  My working all the time hasn't quite been fair to my students either because I can't get everything corrected the way I like to.  I love summer.  It's so amazing here, the sun doesn't go down until eight or nine and even though it's never hot like it is down south, it is amazing.  I am also not feeling sick anymore and I think I might even ride the bus tomorrow!  That always makes me feel better, even when it's a nasty day so if it's nice again, imagine how much fun I'll have!  Okay well I'm gonna go hang with my husband and the cats then probably read Wicked, which is amazing so far.  It's quite sexual and political, which surprised me, especially since the person that loaned it to me is a twelve yr old, Christian girl.  Who woulda thunk it?  Thanks for reading Bethy!  :)


  1. Oh, I'm so glad you're feeling better. Isn't it nice to have time to just hang out? I think this summer will be very restorative for you. I think it will be for me, too--no tenure file hanging over my head, nothing huge and horrible pressing on us.

    I have to say when I saw that picture of HSU with Founders Hall in the background it made me cry--I miss Humboldt County! I miss my school--I think when I first got to HSU I was the happiest I'd been in a long time. Anyway, have a good day little sister! Love you!

  2. Yep no use in stressing uselessly. Beautiful picture. Enjoy your week and hope you find time to do the grading over the weekend. Nice blog :)
