Well, well. What’s been going on?
In one word, work. I’ve been extremely busy under deadline pressure, plus 2 tests last week. My schooling has suffered somewhat (more on that in a bit). I’ve been working 9-10 hour days, then working all around the house. I haven’t read LJ in a week, so if there’s anything of importance, please let me know. (tattermuffin, what did you think of Atlanta?)
I have posted a bit here and there on FB and Twitter, but even my Twittering has suffered. (I have discovered TweetDeck, what an awesome concept! Too bad it uses Adobe AIR, yet another piggy product from the folks who bring you that overused and resource consuming “tool”, Flash.
But I must be a glutton for punishment. I just signed up for a full-time load at Sac State in the fall. Whaaa? Yes, 12 units. But 9 of them are online (intro to marketing, business communications [memos, etc.], and French civilization), and the other 3 are the intro MIS class that I can sleep through. Cheri is taking the same 3 online classes, plus 2 more online in accountancy, and will try to add the MIS class, for a total of 18 units. She’s more of the punishment glutton than I am. But she’s done very well with the 15 units this semester. And if she can take 18, then she can graduate a semester sooner!
The weekends have been busy; for example, last weekend, I got to don the cap, flannel shirt and boots in 90° F/32° C+ weather and do something I’ve always wanted to do…be a lumberjack! Cutting down the mighty…er, I don’t know what this was. It was about a 4-year old tree in the city easement along the creek that was going to grow into the overhead power lines. We live in the last Roseville subdivision built with overhead utilities; in fact, the next phase on the south side of the creek has no overhead utilities. The city (our electric company is municipally-owned, much cheaper than PG&E!) was supposed to start burying them this year, but with the depression…
Zut alors! Qu’est-ce qu’passe avec ma classe française?
