The car is in the shop (for a $500 repair). The baby is sick (a cold or something equally snotty that makes him cranky). I'm conferring (can I stop saying "conferencing"?) with two classes over the next week and a half. Campus interviews for the search committee I'm on start tomorrow. I'm learning how to hire adjuncts for next semester. I need to meet with four Honors thesis writers and their committees before Thanksgiving. And a committee from the Student Senate would like to meet with me about their concerns and suggestions regarding one of our required composition courses.
Can I just skip the rest of the month?
