But it's been non-stop all week, getting started and meeting students and having orientations for my online courses (not to mention doing last minute throwing up of material in the new course). My two face-to-face literature courses seem really good; I have a nice bunch of students who are responding well, and all technology went off without a hitch. It is a little wierd going from Beowulf to Swift with an hour in between - for the students, too, as about a third of them are in both classes, and one poor child is in my online comp class as well. She's going to know me well by the end of the term!
I have to figure out whether to work at home or at work. I thought to work at work, then spent a lot of time being interrupted by one of my neighbours who wanted to tell me all about his latest research project or his enthusiasm for his new online course or to enlist my help in uploading files or operating the email system... And the doggies are showing signs of not liking to be left for long periods - this is one disadvantage of my mum no longer being here. I may have to consider daycare for dogs if I'm going to be out for long hours.
Oh well, I have my latest installment of Buffy to watch tonight, and a nice easy supper, so I think I'm going to go and relax now!
