Dear Husband took this picture from the beach today. If there is one nice thing about living in Corpus Christi, it is the ability to decide on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to forget about everything else, throw your stuff in the car, and head out to the gulf. We spent the afternoon reading (and in my case, getting a bit toasted), which has been a nice end to what has seemed like nigh endless weeks of rain.
Those nigh endless weeks of rain meant another adventure with water in the garage, and this week, a migraine that lasted from Monday afternoon all the way through Friday and which has only now abated. My students are pretty good when it comes to keeping it down to a dull roar when I ask them to, though my head was so mixed up that I gave two different classes the wrong readings and had to correct for it later.
As such, I'm not entirely sure all what went on this week! I've felt behind this week--more behind than I actually am. Not that I still don't have plenty to do next week, but I'm not that behind. Part of being behind was because I ended up spending two hours Tuesday writing a paper prompt for my American Lit class that I'd not only already written but handed out to my students--and had completely forgotten about. But because it somehow didn't get checked off my to-do list, I ended up doing it again.
I've actually been trying to write this blog post most of the evening, and realized that most of the things that occurred to me this week to put in my blog didn't stay in my brain because of that week-long migraine. So this will be a rather short entry, I think. Maybe next week will be more interesting, but since interesting often means stressful, I'm going to hope not.
