|I grew peas!!!! In Colorado!!!!|
My basil is taking off, which means I'd better get on that mozzarella goal of mine! The tomato plants are looking flawless, but thus far only a few blossoms and 1-2 fruits. No peppers yet either.
In the next month, Dave and I will be in the same state for seven days. We planned separate family vacations, which is pretty necessary when we both have jobs and we live in a different state than our families, who live in different states than each other. Of course the vacations didn't overlap and they depend on many other families, so they can't be scheduled around us. Last summer I was able to join him for his due to a different summer school schedule, but I couldn't reason canceling class this year, since I teach for 2.5 hours Mondays and Wednesdays. (Fly Wednesday afternoon? Rent a car? Get there at midnight? Spend Thursday and Friday at the shore, fly back Saturday? It just didn't seem worth $500+ plane ticket plus rental car.) They don't have subs for college professors, unless you can find a friend (sucker) to sub for you. I know my students wouldn't mind the day off, but it's kind of my job to be there. On the bright side, my students are amazing this summer!
Sometimes I get nervous about whether or not I'll be able to entertain myself while Dave is traveling, so I overplan my time or set too many goals to complete and then get overwhelmed. Why can't he travel during the school year when I'm crazy busy and am only home and awake long enough to eat dinner with him? Anyone else have issues with this? How do you deal with it? (Wrote this on Thursday. Back to class prep, today's goal: Gravitational Force and its roll in atmospheric motions/balances.)
