Throw me a life line.

Currently drowning in homework. Am far more snowed under than I imagined I'd be. The more times I go back and re-read my syllabi the more I realize I missed the first time around. That's probably because I fainted from the stress of what I did read, fell and hit my head, and never got through all of it. Every time I look at the assignments I cackle madly like an insane person, hoping someone will hear and have me committed. Anything for a justifiable reason to have a little extra time to complete assignments.

In other news, being exhausted and over-worked has been producing some rather odd incidents in my life. Yesterday I left my travel coffee mug on the back of my husband's car, while loading up homework to take with me to work. Somehow I totally forgot the coffee mug, which rolled off the back of the car as I backed down the driveway. Hearing the odd plastic-like sound of the mug hitting the driveway I stopped, but then shrugged and thought I was imagining things. Then I ran over the mug.

Today, after working at the library and working out at the gym, I was sitting comfortably on the sofa doing homework. I put my head back, just for a moment, and fell asleep, hands still on keyboard. I jolted awake about half an hour later, when my laptop started sliding off my lap. Luckily, unlike the unfortunate mug, I caught the computer before it hit the floor.

In a final bit of excitement, over the course of just this last week I've fallen asleep multiple times reading homework in bed, waking up to find I'd dropped a highlighter on my shirt while blissfully dozing away. When you drop a highlighter on your shirt you wind up with a nice, big, spreading stain. For the record, it washes out. At least so far.

Otherwise, not a lot to report, unless you consider reading articles and getting high on highlighter fumes exciting fare. Stay tuned for more misadventures as they occur.

  1. I’m in that boat this semester, but with just one grad class on the go, the other stress comes from teaching SEVEN CLASSES. What I was thinking (other than MUST HAVE MONEY), I have no idea. Definitely buckling down on the grad classes over the summer (May mini and a 10-week session) and then going full time next year to finish up. Glad to know highlighters wash out (so far).

  2. Hi Lisa – Re: May Sarton’s grave marker … it does seem particularly vain to direct the designing of it yourself … but yes easier in life than in death (apparently). Thanks for your comments — that’s Abby’s bathroom wall full of pictures and I’ll put more up later … her whole bathroom is a scrapbook! – Geo
