Today was a really long day for me. It is always a bit sad when you teach the last class of a semester and today, because these were make-up classes for our ‘optional’ bad-weather day, the classes were stacked back to back without a break of any sort. It was a teaching marathon. I have to say I was really (really) impressed with how prepared the first year students are already for the final exam this coming Sunday. Now I’m thinking, yikes, did I make the exam too easy? I got home at 7 and collapsed for a nap after feeding the critters. I’m about to head back to bed after I clean the litter boxes. More updates tomorrow on our politics, the garden and just general life.
