...before school starts up again. Where did the summer go?? I know, I know, I can't complain. No other profession gives its employees 2+ months off during the most beautiful weather of the year (of course, I could--and do--make the argument that no other profession requires 2+ months off to recharge and regain emotional sanity the way teaching does...)
So I'll spend today finding something to do with 10 pounds of tomatoes from my FIL's garden (any easy suggestions?), sending out a round of press releases for One Night in Boston, getting things together for tomorrow's bright and early start, and perhaps reading the latest book I'm reviewing for LASR. It's a western, and I deliberately picked it because I have decided to read and review books for that website that I would never normally choose.
By the way, I've also started reading The Time Traveler's Wife: very interesting novel about a man, Henry, who travels back and forth through time visiting his former and future self, and the woman he's married to, Clare, whom he also visits at various points in time (though she lives a linear, chronogocial life: no time travel for her). It's taking me a while to get used to the premise, but the writing is lovely. I'll let you know what I think when I'm a little further on.
And yes, I will spend some time later today picking out my "first day of school" outfit, the same way I did all those years ago when I was the student rather than the teacher. Funny how some things don't change all that much, hmm?
Have a wonderful Labor Day!
