 Today was so busy!
  • Had a difficult conversation, but I'm glad it happened.
  • Ate a turkey pocket and it was divine!
  • Graded a class worth of essays. Only 77 to go.
  • Studied the muscles of facial expression and mastication.
  • Bought new glasses and contacts.
  • Sweated throughout this 90 degree "Spring" day.
  • Cape tomorrow! Flying back to Baltimore on Friday.
  • Bank of America called me to report suspicious activity on my credit card. That would be me, buying up flights, classes, cars (rental) and hotels.

I'm at home, in my room...the news is on downstairs, and my mom is chopping thyme for tonight's pot roast. Soon, it will get dark and the street lamp down the street will turn on. All of this is very comforting, especially in a time of change.

Today was productive and intimidating. I enrolled for my A&P II summer course. I paid for our flights, car, and hotel for the wedding in Virginia, and thought more about my impending move. Tonight I will be grading papers and studying the muscular system.

Easter was good. It's a holiday that I'm starting to enjoy more as I get older. I like the symbolism and the promise of Spring.

Planning on reading a bit of Tobias Wolff's Old School before bed tonight, after the Red Sox.

Vacations are great.
