Classes are going well, so far. I generally enjoy the first few weeks, the honeymoon stage, I sometimes call it, before they get their first assignments marked, returned...
A late October event I'm responsible for has me stressing about some must-do-right-now's that pose some fiddly nested tasks and deadlines. But it's going to be a great event that should involve the larger community, and I'm excited about that.
For now, I've come over to Vancouver to help with the new baby and to do the Coho Run with my sister. Paul and I are hoping to get out on our new bikes, but I'm also going to have to hole up in the condo at some point and write a lecture, plan a workshop, and catch up on my email. Honestly, I think I'm actually enjoying some of the busy, for now.
Tired though? Oh, yeah! Especially since I'm not only going from 0 to 60 in the work schedule, but am determined to kick my fitness routine into full fall functionality...
Yesterday morning, for example, I really wanted to fit in a run, but I also had to catch the 8:00 ferry....for an hour run, followed by a shower and something to eat, I had to be in my running gear and on the road by 6. Didn't make it out before 6:15, so I was really scrambling to get ready on time.
Luckily, I'd laid out my clothes the night before, and I was showered, dressed, and finishing my toast and tomatoes by 7:45, leaving me a minute to snap this pic.
Again, a somewhat scattered post, which I hope you find better than no post at all. . . . And again, I'd love your comments but have no particular questions to elicit them. The outfit, by the way, comprises a white Gap T-shirt, yellow Gap khakis featured, cotton knit striped blazer, by Nice Things, bought in Bordeaux a year ago, and Fluevog suede oxfords. . .
