Better late then Never...

Well i finally finished my book. I have been reading Range of Motion by Elizabeth Berg for eight months now. Well actually I haven't been reading, that was the problem.

I started this book when my mother started her second round of chemo, back in November. And I have just been too busy to finish. Every time her or I had a doctors appt I would always bring my book and read a chapter or two. There were only about 50 or so pages and I vowed to finish; so last weekend that is just what I did... I sat and read.

There is something rewarding (not to mention enlightening) about reading an entire book.

Poker on my phone...

Texas holdem on my I phone... well it sounded like a good idea at the time. If I have a minute or two to waste, I find myself logging on to beat these imaginary players... and being extremely happy when I do.

Sorry, it is just too much fun.

Busy Summer

I think of things to say in my blog everyday... but just don't take the time to sit and write them out. And for the most part, I am mad at myself. I know how much fun it is and how informative it is to read back.

At any rate, this has been one of the busiest summers in a long, long time. I thought that teaching two summer school classes (online) shouldn't be too bad, but Oh boy was I wrong.

First week, I read and returned 210 e-mails. an average of 3.5 e-mails a person. I think we got the slackers weeded out, both of my 35+ student body class down to around 20 students each and they are much more manageable. So far this week only 7. YEAH team.
