Sunday? You have got to be kidding me. Where did the last three days go?!
Let's see. In the last three days I have:
Graded three sets of final papers for three classes.
Calculated grades for all three classes.
Put those grades up on my class web sites.
Dealt with hysterical inquiries from students who should have known what was coming, but were nevertheless shocked and horrified to discover that one does not receive a good grade when one does not do the work assigned in class.
Picked up one puppy from the vet, where she'd gone to be spayed.
Brought home with her two medications to be given to her twice a day.
She's recovering nicely, by the way, and was overjoyed to be brought home. I think she was worried I might forget about her, in spite of the fact that I have yet to do so.
Went to one graduation.
With two friends.
At 8:30 in the morning.
Saw hundreds of students graduate.
Saw the president of the university smile for a picture with each student. Ouch.
Drank one margarita afterwards (a traditional reward for sitting through a hot graduation in black regalia).
Packed one husband off to Colorado.
For four days.
To give one conference paper.
He also brought one mountain bike along.
And promised to leave one note on his windshield for each ride he goes on, and to call me at the beginning and end of each ride.
Got one daughter to one swim meet (non-competitive).
Drove a solid forty miles round trip to get there (unexpectedly; it wasn't where I thought it was going to be. Oops).
Where she swam in five events.
I took her out afterwards for one piece of quiche at her favorite little French bakery.
Rescued one blue jay chick from one cat.
Called the Humane society who said that they know a woman who rescues corbae and takes care of them until they're ready to be released again.
Drove another 20 miles round trip to deliver the chick to the Humane society for pickup.
During all of this, knitted between four and six inches on my skirt (depending on whether we're looking at the shorter or longer bit of the points). Pictures tomorrow, I promise. Right now, it's way too hot to spend any time in the sun. Summer has arrived, a month early.
So that's where the last three days have gone... I'm off to knit quietly in a cool corner somewhere.
