All Moved In

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are all moved into our new house! Which means we are all moved out of our previous residence on Newhouse. I know, confusing, right? New house, Newhouse....*sigh*

But anyway, yes, everything is currently in the new house. Is it put away? Not remotely, but we're getting there. We spent a lot of last weekend putting things in order--the major stuff, so that we can at least feel like we can function. The kitchen is nearly done--just a few tweaks left and it will be perfect. We've ordered the new table and chairs, but it will be a month or so until it arrives. Which is just as well, because we're hoping to have our tax money in a month or so to pay for it. :)

Life is full and busy right now, as you can imagine....I hardly find the time to think, let alone blog about what I think. My yoga practice keeps me sane. So does the thought that finals are next week, and since most of my finals are really just short self-evaluation papers, my grading load is going to be fairly light. Hoorah! But of course, the 109 research projects are also due next week, and those are not so light. That will take some time to wade through.

Today, in class, we are playing arts-and-crafts with their research projects....I brought markers and paper and scissors, so they can really mark up, cut up, move around, and otherwise completely revamp their papers. The revision process, I've noticed, tends to fall by the wayside (as usual), so I want to make sure they really do it this time. And since this paper counts for 30% of their grades, I would hope they'd get into it!

Anyway, class is starting. Away I go! Will be back later, hopefully with pictures!

Thanks for the compliment on the artwork - every now and then, I like to do crafty stuff - AND - since I can't afford the kind of artwork I WANT in my house, I have to make it. Glad you're inspired.

Congrats on your new house sweetie! Sorry it couldn't work out that I come visit. Have fun with grading and yoga-ing and relaxing-in-da-house-ing. Love you!
