Holy cow. A month into this and I’ve hardly written a thing, so I decided I better just take a couple of minutes and write “something.” What’s new? The kids have been sick, I finished the 3rd Tales of the City book (Further Tales of the City, I think), I cleaned the top of the fridge while listening to Selected Shorts, and I’ve spent all day checking/writing email related to this new job I’ve taken as the First Year Experience Coordinator. Oh and I baked some chocolate chip cookies for the “ghost” delivery in the neighborhood. Tonight is bookgroup and we’re talking about Mary Oliver’s poetry collection, American Primitive. I’d planned to spend the day reading poetry. That’s what sabbaticals are made for huh? Reading poetry all day. Ah the life! But I’m looking forward to this new administrative position and all the changes/challenges ahead.
