Friday Random Thoughts

It's the end of the semester and my motivation is really low. Why, oh, why does all the grading activity come at the end of the semester?

Every morning I read the news updates from Inside Higher Ed. This morning one of the blogs posted end of the semester haikus. This one is my favorite:

breakfasts and dinners
celebrate great and good things
every frickin' day
I am in a baking mood today -- perhaps a strawberry rhubarb pie is in order.

This weekend is Mother's Day and I'm sort of meh on the whole thing. I've been thinking about a longer post on my feelings, but I just can't seem to get it written.

I need to vacuum, my most hated household chore. Well, that and emptying the dishwasher, folding laundry, cleaning the kitchen, mopping the floor, and cleaning the shower. I wish we had a housekeeper!

We've had a lot going on lately -- I'd like to have a few days to just be. Maybe Sunday.

Is it bad that I told J that the best gift he could give me on Mother's Day was a morning to myself? And, as for the housekeeper...the second we can afford it, I'm having someone do the tubs and toilets, dusting and windows...
