After all of the excitement of yesterday, today felt pretty uneventful. Actually it was just plain uneventful.
Today was just a day of getting caught up: caught up on sleep, on grading, on housework. All that grown-up business.
I’m coming into a busy week. This will be the last week of the semester, which means Tuesday is our last class (students will be doing final presentations!) and then I’ve got a whole lot of final grading to wrap up. On top of that I heard that the Canada Post cut-off for regular shipping on parcels that need to arrive in time for Christmas is this Wednesday, so today I had to get all my cards written and gift packing done (which I did while watching Christmas movies. It was mighty festive).
Also! Because both of my brothers have schedules that are difficult to navigate (one of them works a rotating, non-negotiable schedule out in Alberta and the other has exams in Ottawa) my immediate family is celebrating our Christmas this upcoming weekend. Oh, and I’m hosting. Needless to say, that adds a whole new level to this upcoming week.
All this said, I think a quiet day to get things in order was probably exactly what I needed.
And now, to bed.
