FRIDAY: Another snow day in which I largely stayed in my pjs. Activities included: -writing in my diary, -reading ENG 1101 rough drafts and e-mail feedback to students, -reading Gay L.A., -watching the Olympics, -long talk on the phone with my BFF. SATURDAY: Just for a rare change of pace, it snowed some more, but at least this time there was no serious accumulation. The day's activities included -reading and commenting on 12 Walk on the Wilde Side short pieces, -reading Gay L.A., -8 miles on the treadmill while reading Divergent. SUNDAY: -Child and I visited my sister and my baby nephew! -Later, we moved on to the Mid-Atlantic Dancesport Championships. We watched for about 2.5 hours and handed out the scholarship checks for Youth Latin. That night, Child had a lengthy Facetime chat with her friends who moved to Florida around Christmas. MONDAY: Wrote a FB PM to try to solve one of my logistical challenges. (To wit, we are invited to an out of state wedding that Child is not invited to.) Good news: the family of a BFF would be thrilled to have her sleepover. YAY! Win-win.) After 4 days off, we were finally back at the college! 8ish--Mad preparatory hour, as it somehow had not occurred to me on Wednesday that school would be cancelled Thursday AND Friday, so I wasn't as prepared as I could be to lose Friday. 9:10--ENG 1101. Discussed audience. 10:20--POSTCOLONIAL LITERATURE. The Joys of Motherhood. Lunch and grading time. Treated myself to a candy bar from the vending machine since we had been all out of lunchbox desserts. 12:40--WALK ON THE WILDE SIDE. The Picture of Dorian Gray. 2-5--Grading and office hours. Home. Dinner. Wrote a letter of recommendation. Re-read some Queer London, in prep for Wednesday. Read some Gay L.A. for fun.
