So I DID get the adjunct faculty position I noted in the previous post. I'm very excited, but frankly I am too busy to dwell on it for too long.
Teaching a Foundations class should be a relatively straight-forward thing. It's not. I was given documentation and syllabi from two different instructors about 10 minutes before walking into a classroom with a full roster of students.
I also have my own coursework to complete. This is a lesson in organization and discipline. I'm just chipping away at it as best I can.
In the meantime, the weather has been all over the place. Snow and ice less than a week ago, and this morning it was 57 degrees F, then rain, thunder, howling winds and tornado warnings. This evening the howling winds remain, but it is dry and 33 degrees F.
I am also checking in on my friends' 15 year old Labrador Retriever and three cats while they are on vacation. AND, little Ms. Parker has had some tummy trouble. It seems under control after one week of restricted diet and veterinary care. The real hero? Pureed pumpkin. She's feeling better and all the critters in the house are enjoying the fiber and regularity the pumpkin provides. That's all I have to say about that.
Maybe I will start a garden on the kitchen floor - goodness knows the dogs have tracked in enough dirt to grow asparagus.
