Always Running

September 20th, 2012 at 03:06 am

It's been another rushing week here. DH isn't sleeping right and we've all been struggling again with the early mornings.

It's also been a strange week at school. My four-person class has dwindled further to three, and Monday night, another person was out. And then there were two. It doesn't much make for a fruitful discussion, does it? We got pizza and watched a very good DVD on Harriet Jacobs, one of the first women slaves to write a slave narrative. It actually was a nice evening after teaching all day Monday. Since DD had to come to the university with me on Monday, she got to have a lovely lunch away with her dad. We were watching "Glengarry Glen Ross" in my Business Lit class and that isn't exactly appropriate for young-uns.

Yesterday I held another info session for my Study Abroad types. We only had about another 12 turn up, but I've got 17 who have started the application process. I hope many end up coming.

Today was another busy one--classes, then home to stir up a casserole (not my favorite) for a after-school tutoring session our church puts on. I also made a cake for the kids, and then spent another couple hours helping DD with her upcoming speech.

I really feel like I'm always running--and will be happy when my evening class ends in another month.
The overload schedule coupled with the Study Abroad obligations have stretched me. I really need a few days off to catch up.

Hmmm- financial news? None to speak of. I have a lot of financial issues on the "to -do" list, but it might be a while!

    They will let you continue the class with only two students?

    You're singing my song, sister!

    I actually came home yesterday after driving the kids to school and took a three-hour nap. Insomnia came at 3:00 AM yesterday. Thankfully I made it through the night last night.

    Everybody has already paid up for the class, so they're going to keep it. It's only an 8-week class, and we're halfway done. But it's hard work to keep things going with three folks.

    I hope the two left are ones who actually do the readings/work and aren't wall flowers who have little to add. That'd make a group of three really frustrating for a discussion class.

    It may turn out to be a really awesome educational experience for those students! At the college where I work, all classes are closed when they reach 15. We only have one big classroom and that is used for public events. The small, intimate classroom experience is the ideal here.

    Thanks, CB. We certainly haven gotten to know each other well. I think I like classes of 4-8 really well, but not sure about those 2. I'm going to have to spend some rethinking my lesson plans!
