Lack of Blogging; an excess of Living.

We have been really neglectful in our blogging duties. I’d like to say that we could have found some time to put some posts up but hell, we have had a lot of stuff going one:

About a month ago I was offered an adjunct position at Burlington College for the Spring semester. That meant having to develop a course in roughly, well, a month (since the semester starts next week). Stress is through the roof, but I really love the material I am working up for my first class developed from scratch!

At the same time as all of that is going on we are heading to England(!) because I am speaking at a conference at the University of Kent. A paper I submitted (basically a chapter of my dissertation) was accepted so off we go across the pond for a week of vacationing around the South of England. Because of the time off Katie has had to come up with a week of sub-plans for her students—not an easy task. I’ve felt that while we are getting an exciting opportunity to go to England it has heaped a ton of work and stress on both of us.

That, dear readers, is what has been eating up our time and energy. Hopefully once the trip is done and I setting into the teaching routine we can get back to blogging more regularly. Plus, I we both haven’t been working out all that much, so getting back into a routine will help with that as well.

In the meantime, enjoy yourselves and we will see you on the flip-side of our trip!

Living Deliberately Project – Week 51

This week in the LDP…

$9 were well spent in the week before the end of the LDP, leaving us with $25 to spend on anything in the world (by which I mean within the limits of the LDP). Well, Christmas Vacation is upon us, at least upon Katie. Christmas Vacation…hmmm…

Aside from worrying about the Christmas bonus and putting up 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights the major highlight from the week was Jon getting an adjunct position at Burlington College…as well as a simultaneous offer from SUNY Albany (that he had to turn down). He will be teaching a humanities course called “Ways of Seeing.” Should be a cool class!

Well, that about does it for this week. There is one more week left in the LDP—on this winter solstice have fun looking for Christmas star and not the light on the sewage treatment plant.

To everyone out there: Have a Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday season.
