Well, I seem to be doing an "every other day" kind of thing, but hey, at least I'm posting, right?

My little ones took their exam yesterday morning, and it went surprisingly smoothly.  There were hardly any questions; they all got down to work and scribbled away in their bluebooks.  I'm really going to be sad to leave this particular class.  There was virtually always someone coming to see me in my office hours and they were pretty strong in class discussion as well.  They were a smart group overall--it's one of the highest average grades I've had as an instructor here (assuming they all didn't tank the final and the last essay, which I have to grade today and tomorrow).

As usual, I had one who finished in about 45 minutes, and one who stayed the entire 2 hours and I nearly had to kick her out.  Most of them finished around the 1 hr 15 minute mark, which is about what I expected.

Summation:  It went well, I went to work after that then had dinner and hung out with my friend Andrew.  I came home and read some of the MASSIVE book that's been recalled *rolls eyes* and went to bed.   SO WHY AM I STILL EXHAUSTED?  Perhaps it's anticipatory exhaustion knowing that I have to redesign the course and start it again in 6 days?

Anyway, this is an incredibly rambly entry.  I wish I had something fun/interesting/new to tell yall.  Just the same old news that I'm glad you're in my life and that we are friends.

Sounds like you're a busy Birdie at the moment, no wonder you're all worn out. If it was up to me I'd come along and squish you until you felt better.

I'm glad you're posting again. I've missed you muchly.

Oh, thank you so much my dear! I do seem to be busy, don't I? Harumph--how did I let this happen? For someone who is an evangelical sloth, this is most worrying. hahahaha
