Cerebral Week

By Thursday night when my writing group resumed after our summer break, my head was seriously swirling.

In four days, I had drafted a new curriculum for the community college writing classes I start teaching on Monday. I began writing a new novel with my husband. I critiqued a fabulous manuscript, went to an inservice day at school, and penned an 8-page essay about my dad. (A couple of these were done simultaneously. Guess which?)

Plus, there was the middle school math homework: Dominic's statistics and Daney's factoring.

Thank goodness for the season premier of "Glee."

Nothing soothes me like some Sue Sylvester.

Jana, SO glad to hear you're loving your read!

And Caroline, YES! I loaded up that beautiful purse with all kinds of pens and papers, and I carry it around like a real academic!

Hey, everyone, let's start up a Sue Sylvester Fan Club!-- with members called "Mouth Breathers?"
