Planning for Productive Weekend

September 27th, 2013 at 08:14 am

I have loads to do. Paper grading is looming, and I've just finished commenting on 27 pretty awful assignments.

Maybe it's the thought of DH's job instability, the upcoming conference talk, or even (yeah!) London that makes me want to hunker down, clean the house, make soup, and prepare. Maybe it's fall?

I'll know by next week whether I'll have enough London students to go this year. But I'm cautiously optimistic. We took quite a financial hit last year as I was on half salary while there, ironically working at least as hard as at home. But I've volunteered to do an online version of one of my regular offerings in addition to the London classes. Since I'm teaching that class now, I've been trying to compose the online class for spring term at the same time. I'll regret not having the luxury of just focusing on London, but if I get everything up and operating, it should be less painful.

So, the dishwasher is humming as is the washer. Next step might be the slow cooker.

An off topic addendum: I hate banks. The $10K that I moved to Chase for their $150 bonus has earned me a whooping 14 cents in 90 days. And reading about their trading scandals and executive pay have not further endeared them to me. As soon as the bonus hits, the cash is going into the credit union.

    I had a hard time closing the account I opened for the $150 bonus. I was ready to move it back to PNC after "x" amount of days, but then they were going to credit back the bonus because the account needed to stay open an additional 6 months. I think I left $300 in the account to keep the $150 bonus. It was annoying!

    I remember you saying that, Laura. I've resigned myself to six months of their stinginess.

    I'm a credit card deadbeat of Chase's and proud of it.
