Oh, it's true. It's snow day #2. And I am blissfully lounging with kittens, watching music videos, and catching up on some course prep and grading and research and things. What this unexpected break in the semester has proven to me is that really we should have one week off for every 3 weeks of teaching or something, as opposed to summer vacation. Think how nice life would be if we could just have a freaking break every few weeks? Not that I've not been working a ton over the past few days - I have - but the uninterrupted time has been GREAT. That said, I often struggle in summer with uninterrupted time because there's too much of it in a row. So I am thoroughly enjoying this unexpected reprieve from obligations, and, if I do say so myself, using it very wisely.
I'll post some more later, but my breakfast is ready and I'm going to go enjoy it.
