The Mad Rush

It's the end of term and finals coming up and I'm practicing breathing just in case I forget how. Student papers are pouring in. Some of my panicked "children" are expressing worry about what grade they might be getting and require some serious calming down. As with any other bureaucracy, the required paperwork is going to take hours and hours to complete. Strangely enough, my family still insists on eating during this time period, and that means shopping as well. My inanimate objects have been well and truly warned that any misbehavior on their part will result in permanent banishment from the house. And into this mix add in that one of my children is moving to a new apartment next week--sigh, wonderful timing not.

The postings for the next couple of weeks are decidedly going to be in a lighter vein. Here's hoping that no new scandal or public announcement of the "you-have-to-be-kidding-they-said-that?!" kind will erupt to sidetrack me.

Excuse me now while I go practice saying this too shall pass, this too shall pass.

Kind of late to be ending a term isn't it? Thought the colleges were done before the winter holidays.

Whenever I get so busy that I don't know how I'll get through it, I remind myself that this is a GOOD kind of busy, and I'm thankful I'm not busy with painful or sad things.
Enjoy it!
