Today I intended to do very little, honestly. I’ve been pretty wound up lately between some work deadlines, the end of the semester, and trying to catch up from the five days I spent in Puerto Rico at a conference–yeah, I went to Puerto Rico to WORK! Anyway, I’ve been getting up at 5:00 to work, but yesterday I didn’t because I teach until 9:30 on Wednesday nights. However, I was able to finish a book review I needed to submit, and I received a copy of ALN: American Literary Naturalism newsletter in the mail. It had a copy of an article I’d written about teaching Stephen Crane in it. (Tenure, I better get you.) Feeling a little ahead, I called Grandude to tell him that I could handle the boys this morning.
- To wake up at five and work. (Nope)
- To take Seamus to preschool. (Yes)
- To run some kind of errand with Gilbert. (Public Library and Trader Joe’s)
- To pick Seamus up. (We walked, so good for us!)
I did not intend to order our Christmas cards, but I had some time–so I did! You’ll get yours soon, I’m sure.
Here’s not a preview; instead these are some pictures that I did not put on the card.
