Since the European football (soccer) leagues are through for the season and 'Dancing with the Stars' is done and the long semester is finally done it's like I finally have my sanity back. It's like I have it back, not that I actually do. A new teaching gig and the constant preparation for two new (to me) classes expanded to take up all my time and (more critically) focus. Now that the semester is done, I'm spending less time worrying about coming up with assignments and grading them, and WAY less time commuting.
Just wanted to let you know I hadn't driven off the edge of the Earth (my commute was far enough that you'd think I had tried, though) and that I've really been wanting to get back to hiking, painting and writing. Happy summer, indeed!!
You didn't expect that we'd watch (English) football, did you?
