We had a nice weekend, but I am working way too much. Except for a few breaks, I spent all of yesterday (until after midnight) grading papers. DH made dinner, but this is a month full of various commitments including teaching Sunday school, and delivering a conference paper. I seem to be always behind.

But still, it's ok. We had a lot of fun at the "Black Hole Bash" sponsored by our Astronomy department. DD brought a friend who actually stumped two well-known astronomers with her question. I met lots of interesting graduate students from all over the world and learned that we really have a fabulous astronomy department.

I will miss the paycheck when my Monday night adjunct teaching ends, but I am really looking forward to having some more time.

    Wow! What was the question and answer? I'm glad you will get a little more time to yourself. My DH was working crazy hours this week. The shutdown meant less staff, as some of them are civilians that were furloughed.

    Thank you for being a teacher. I am a full-time writer and work a lot too. Sometimes you have to take a little break, although it is hard to do.

    The question was: What is the closest black hole to earth? I did some research of my own later, and it seems it's a harder question than it sounds!
    And thank you for thanking me!
