Well. It certainly was not my intention to go more than a week without blogging, particularly with all that’s been going on around here lately. I’m ok. I’m coping. I’m still micro-managing everything way too much (out of necessity, unfortunately). But on top of that, I’ve just been too damn busy to do much beyond the bare necessities.

Getting sick—twice—certainly didn’t help things.

Nor did the business trip which took up much of the week.

Nor did the (seriously) day o’ meetings, and when I say day o’ meetings, I mean DAY o’ meetings, as in ENTIRE DAY o’ meetings. Yeeesh.

And this week? Not much better. Oh yes, this week we have 2 days o’ meetings, and some deadlines, and the business trip means I’m starting out the week behind already. And some student crises are awaiting me too. Good times.

But I have had some restorative things going on, too, which has helped my psyche and my mental/emotional health immensely. Getting off campus for said trip, for instance—that really could not have come at a better time. Getting the chance to catch up with some old and dear friends. And these business trips—well, they always help me feel smart. Because I’m hanging out with people who *think* I’m smart, and *they’re* really smart, and they make me *feel* smart too, and we’re doing smart things that help me think about my work in new and fresh and exciting ways.

So I guess that’s something.

Now I just need to catch up on my serious sleep deficit…..

    I could have written this post. Seriously. Hope things get better for both of us in the weeks ahead.
