Ok, not really, but it has been an adjustment to have to wake up at a set time and not just lounge around drinking coffee all morning until I decide what adventure to take. I always forget how exhausting teaching is after a little break from it.
My classes are AMAZING, though. Students have been participating. The ones that have had reading have been prepared. I have one class where about half of the students I've had before and the students that are new to me are fitting in beautifully.
I'm also teaching a major authors study course on Emily Dickinson--my dream class!
|Emily and I are ready for our first day of school!|
Luckily, I've had most of the students in that class before because if they were all new to me, they'd think I was nuts. I came in the first day rocking my Emily Dickinson bling and holding my Dickinson doll. They seemed excited that we had a mascot for the class.

Today, one of my co-workers stopped in with some homemade dog treats he made using the used grains for his homebrew. Bar was thrilled when I pulled out the bag. It's fun to work with people who like my pets.
Because I've got the most awesome schedule in the world, I just have to make it through tomorrow and I'll be done with the first week. My cousin's coming up for the holiday weekend, so we'll probably check another of the Doggin' Cleveland adventures off the list. I'm happy to have a long weekend to regroup and snuggle with the pets for a bit.
