Vacation-ish

Yay! I have six days where I don't have to physically go to work.
I mean, I still have online classes that I have to grade and respond to, and I have to prepare my syllabus for the next semester at the other college where I teach, but I could sit around in my pajamas for the next six days.
The problem with teaching at two colleges is that they are on totally different schedules. One college is on quarters and the other is on semesters then breaks those semesters down into 8-week sessions.
The one college had spring break three weeks ago. Next week the other college has spring break. Rarely do the breaks coincide.
I thought I was going to get a vacation at the end of June. I told my mom that we were coming down to Florida. Now I found out that the one college has a two-week break in the middle of June and the other college has a one break at the end. They don't coincide again....
I've asked to teach online this summer. I am determined to get a vacation eventually -- to leave the state and go somewhere other than New York to pick up Grace from college.
I know no one will feel sorry for me since I snuck away for a fabulous vacation in Paris last year at this time. But you can't live on Paris memories forever. Although I'll keep trying. Aaaah, Paris.

Such cute pictures of you and Daddy! I don't think I've seen all of them, when I get back we'll have to reminisce about Paris in the springtime. Love you!

You sound really busy. I hope a week in your pjs will be just what the doctor ordered. I took an online class one-hated it. I like a real class with human interaction.

Oh honey, I'LL feel sorry for you. I live in the land of vacations. Everyone needs time away...no matter where they go and one great vacation a year ago doesn't cancel out the need for another. I hope you can find a time slot...and then grab it and run. Love the photos, by the way.

Ohhh Enjoy your 7 days with options. I'm happy for you and count me as one that feels for you and your competing school schedules. I mean, that's one of the perks of being a professor, isn't it?

I have full faith in you g.etting your vacation
