Off to St. Louis for the Conference on College Composition and Communication on Thursday, and I'm so excited, nerd that I am.

Meet Me in St. Louis

Getting the spring blues a little. Or maybe I'm just overwhelmed.

I'm heading to St. Louis for the big 4 Cs this Thursday through Sunday. Roadtripping with three other gals from my grad school days, which I know will be fun. The problem is-- I collect final papers from one of the schools I teach for on Thursday, and final grades are due the Tuesday after I get back. So I either have to try to grade in between conferences and with three other girls in the room OR grade two classes' worth of papers Sunday night and Monday.

And there are other stresses at work. The only thing I can do right now is wait. No other options, and it's freaking killing me.

So I'm trying to be quiet and just breathe... and wait.

Spring Break?

Well, it's spring something. Mike has pneumonia. Full blown, on antibiotics and an inhaler. His temperature was 103 on Monday, which considering his core is usually cooler, a pretty high temp. In the middle of the night, Brad wandered into my room complaining of a sore throat. He's headed to the doctor this afternoon.

If I can escape the sick, I'm headed to my sister's tomorrow to hang out with family and see Fiddler on the Roof in downtown Indianapolis. Here's hoping.

In other news, I've got the spring cleaning bug and went through my clothes and shoes yesterday. I removed 6 30 gallon trash bags of STUFF. Gone, outta my room, hallelujah!

Today, it's the sitting area at the end of the room and possibly the bookcases.

And. I'm dieting. Like really successfully. Think I might make my goal this summer after all. FINALLY.
