This morning, I loaded Minnow into the car, plugged in the iPod and started singing along to the children’s songs as we backed out of the driveway. Twenty minutes later I realized that I had completely bypassed Minnow’s daycare and was well on my way to campus. Oops!
When I finally made it to my office, I was pleased to find proofs for an article. Something to do during what is sure to be a long faculty meeting this afternoon. I’m dealing with lots of administrivia right now (registration, travel plans, conference organizing) and those sucked up my entire morning. With a solid afternoon of meetings and seminars, I’m (dis)pleased to report that yet another day with little research time has been accomplished. Some days the possibility of tenure feels very faint.
