After 30 hours awake and traveling, I finally arrived home, Gentle Reader, Wednesday afternoon. We all left the manor at 2 a.m. to get to Heathrow, and there were fun activities for the students and a breakfast and some of the faculty (myself included) decided to stay up with the students. I got about two hours of sleep on the plane, but I’ve been catching up since then! The dogs were ecstatic to see me, and the husband seemed happy too!
I took a covid test this morning, because I am turning around and leaving again for New Orleans this time. I have SO MUCH WORK TO DO during the next three weeks: I have to make substantial progress on my book. I have to put together five classes (syllabi, assignments, blackboard pages, zoom rooms, etc.) and read the new textbooks Past Amy thought was a great idea to implement (grrrr). It will be good to see family, but still. I wish I could just stay home and nest.
