In case you were wondering

We survived the stomach flu. The Husbandlet had a touch of the nasties, but never actually threw up. He seems to get everything Ngaire and I do, only about three times less badly.

Then I got another kidney infection. Then I got ANOTHER flu, this time the fever/aches/chills/no vomiting variety (the Husbandlet got a headache). I didn’t get a flu shot last Thursday, partially because they wouldn’t let me (I had had a fever within the last 48 hours) and partially because I really don’t want to believe there are any other flus out there for me to get. But there probably are.

Anyway, due to the general malaise and so forth, my grading In box is bursting at the seams and I decided for some crazy reason to give 98 students a test that can’t be ScanTroned. Oy. If you don’t hear from me again, it’s because I got buried in an avalanche of ungraded work, after which my honors students piled on, shrieking, “Have you graded yet? What’s my grade?”

In less overwhelming news, I had a Happy Teacher Moment on Thursday, when some of my poetry students asked if they could take my class again (for no credit) next year. When I told them I won’t be teaching next year, they said, “But we don’t want to take the class if you’re not teaching it!” Awwww. Such moments really do keep you going, though they tend to be few and far between.

I want to take your poetry class! The students are right- I'm sure it's the only one worth taking!

Love, Neb :-)

I did take poetry from you! (Well, you were the TA.) And yeah, you rocked.
