Life continues to throw curveballs.
The latest one is that our washing machine quit. It was only about three years old. We had to buy another one Saturday, the fifth one we’ve purchased since moving into our current house 13 years ago. That is ridiculous. On the other hand, it’s nice to have clean clothes for the first time in a long while.
On a more positive note, Saturday I also completed the work needed to release all of my course information to students taking my E-Resources Management course for the Fall semester at the iSchool at Illinois. There are twelve students registered for the course — a good number for the courses I teach. It’s nice to get this done earlier than usual and is a big load off my back. That’s important because the next three weeks — like most of the past several weeks — will be very busy.
At the end of this week, I’ll be up at HoneyRock again for several days for Wheaton Passage. I’m looking forward to meeting a new group of incoming freshmen and reconnecting with other faculty colleagues, but the Passage experience is always stressful.
