Here, it is just over two weeks before the kid goes off to her first year of college. (Wasn't it just yesterday she was starting her first year of high school? WTAH.) We're occupied with the incidentals of getting her prepped for college -- dealing with financial issues, buying her supplies, thinking about the gear she'll need.
It's also just three weeks until Fall semester begins. Given I'm still in the middle of teaching Summer II, I've done very little to prep for Fall 2017, though I have made up the reading schedule for Global Lit. (I'm teaching Global Lit, two sections of Comp II, and Fiction Writing.)
I'm also working on the edits for Fault Lines, and writing incidental pieces, like a review for Strange Horizons (finished today -- I hope. We'll see what the editor says).
Between and among all of this, I deal with the annoying work that goes into keeping a household running, though not very well, I must say. Laundry backs up, I haven't vacuumed in weeks, the lawn is getting dangerously high (dangerously, because I have a jerk neighbor who calls the lawn police on me at the slightest excuse.
How are all y'all doing?
