Nothing like the middle of the semester to get me mired in thought. I'm thinking about good students, bad students, disappearing students, and fraught committee work. I'm also thinking about retirement. I posted a question on the forums after learning some of my friends are either already taking Social Security or planning on taking it early. Has the advice changed on that?
Other things on my mind are the tuition bill juggling for DD's fabulous Scotland education. She's having a grand time after a few blips. But DH and I need to make some decisions about whether and when we might move to the UK.
And then I think about mundane things like food budgets and decluttering and whether we should redo a bathroom here. I should think about cleaning the house, but just thinking about that was made me decide to go for a walk in the wondrous autumn weather while it lasts.
