Been a very rough month at work. Grading, mentoring students, and committee work. I'm also teaching the Writing in Psychology class, which is by far the heaviest work-load of any of my classes. I've only taken 2 days completely off during March. My mood hasn't been the best either, and though I almost never have trouble sleeping, I've had that problem for much of the last week.
Thank goodness we've now made it to Spring Break. I'll be off next week, except for dealing with the research committee and getting tests ready for the week after. Still, I'll have some time to relax and I've been pleading for it like a beaten boxer pleads for the bell to ring closure on the last round. We are going to have to see about getting Lana a different car as well, though. Hers has broken down three times in the last three weeks, and that has added to the stress.
I've written nothing except one unfinished scene about a boxer. I haven't submitted anything from the stuff I have done, and haven't even cleaned out my emails for over a month. I've missed my writing group three of the four weeks in March. I've been a pretty bad blogger for most of March as well. I've not posted very often and have had to simply mark all posts as read a few times in Feedly because I didn't have the energy to go through blogs. I should be able to start making rounds again, and I'm hoping to get some stories sent out as well as, maybe, write some new stuff.
This morning the sun is shining and its nice and cool outside. I'm going to start my day with a walk. Outside, oh how I've missed you!
