I'm not really sure why I feel so obligated to write. Though I know I can count the people who read this thing on one hand, obviously, I must be letting my readers down if I don't post daily.

Well, I loves me some delusions.

Whatever. I've done too much grading today and my head is mushy.

But, we are more or less moved in to the new place. Err, at least we are totally moved OUT of the old place. We still need to hang things on the walls, and unpack no less than 8 more boxes (down to single digits! YES!) but it is starting to look like we actually live here.

We ran the dishwasher for the first time today. Talk about music to your ears.

Despite the fact that the last few days have been insane, they've also been pretty blissful. I wake up, have coffee and smoothies with the hubs, go for a swim (in a pool that is near boiling, not sure how long this "workout" will last) then waddle up and down the stairs with boxes, and finally sit down to grade this mountain of blue books around 6:00.

I always get a little sad at the end of the academic year. I mean, happy to have summer, but sad to see everyone go.

Maybe that's why Glee brought me to tears?
