This is the first Spring Break in years that we haven't made a cross-country road trip, usually to Arizona to visit family. Steve and Peter are on an in-state road trip to visit colleges, and I'll be doing my flight out to Grove City in a few weeks with Peter as well, to check out the college and sing in the farewell concert for Dr. Browne. I'm normally a productive and motivated person, but that hasn't really been happening this week.
The walking pneumnonia a few weeks ago really has been difficult to shake. The cough is much better but the fatigue is real. I've been feeling like going to bed around 8:30 most evenings, and so I've mostly been listening to my body on that. I'm still drinking plenty of fluids, and I still haven't graded all of last Friday's quizzes. That's probably going to come back to bite me sometime.
Monday there was a fair amount of housework done - vacuuming primarily. I took the girls to Barnes and Noble and they picked out books (and Quarta picked out a "science" kit to make sour candy). Then we went to Ikea and toured the floor, which the girls found, as I do, fascinating but exhausting, and a little too overwhelming to buy anything big. Tuesday we went swimming at the Marshall center, which was exhausting, then a late lunch at the Pita Pit. The amount of housework has been tapering off since Monday but a little has been done. More than happens when I'm teaching, that's for sure. Yesterday I accomplished very little other than beating Heroes of Kalevala and going for a massage and chiropractic adjustment. Oh yes, and a quick grocery run. And I dusted the TV. The girls and I watched Jumanji in the evening, Steve called, and I yawned all my way through the phone conversation. Yep, really exciting life right now. If I could just get my girls hooked on a modest amount of organization progress with lots of quiet time, I could live like this indefinitely.
But there wouldn't be much to blog about. Wait! Book reviews! I need to do book reviews. But I'm too tired now, and I've got a plane to meet soon. Maybe tomorrow.
