Public Accountability: All Grading, All the Time

That pretty much sums up today, along with some prep for future assignments. I hope to have time to screen a film, since I have a paper due about it in 10 days. (I've seen it and researched it already; I just need a refresher.)

Second pic is from a little hike Ma Fleur and I took in the forest behind our house yesterday after work. A dragonfly was hitching a ride on my hat for a good chunk of that walk.

Pic number three is just a gratuitous Tutu smile. :-D

Public Accountability: Getting it Together

This weekend was long, but good in many ways. More to come as good surprises firm up into log term plans. #vagueplus

Today is about getting a better grip on the midterm picture. I've been running about putting out fires for the first stretch of the semester and its but me in the ass a few times.

Also, I've applied for a tenure-track position. Today, the hiring committee begins looking at the applications in earnest. :: crosses fingers ::

Your spelling is exactly right, +Ilyanna Kreske !

The drawing is Munchkin's. He's got this fantastic imagination that I love to encourage.

Public Accountability: ALL TEH THINGS

I feel like I have a Muniain for things to do and I'm not really getting to them because small, time-dependent fires keep popping up.

Fortunately, I have today completely to myself here in the office. No classes, no meetings, no Tutu; just me and this list.

It feels late but I've already been productive, running an errand at Home Despot and then updating some rubrics for the department assessment committee. I really hope the latter works out; it would be nice yonder my hard work in broader circulation.

Public Accountability: Too Much?

I'm in charge of both baby and puppy today, so maybe this list is too ambitious.

You read that right: we have a puppy! Say hello to Hamilton, our a five month-old chi-weenie-pug. (That's right, part chihuahua, part daschund and part pug; he's going to get sooooooo big!) We started fostering Hamilton last weekend, and he's the calmest, sweetest little dog I've ever met. Tutu is very curious, the cat already tolerates him, the Munchkin adores him and he makes Ma Fleur very, very happy. He also curls up with yours truly every night. :-)

Tutu is somewhat chatty this morning as daddy gears up for the day.

I have coffee and sufficient sleep, let's do this thing!

Now I'm remembering the plow attachment on the tractor being used as a grader, with the tractor going backwards.

Public Accountability: Noir

Aside from the constant beacon of joy that is Tutu, there's definitely a noir-ish mood in the house today. One of Ma Fleur's and Munchkin's old dogs, now in the care of Fleur's ex-husband, was attacked yesterday.

By another dog. One of the ex's other dogs. :-/

Tasha was raced to the vet and underwent surgery, but the doctors needed her to stay the night before giving a prognosis about her chances. To survive.

Munchkin and Ma Fleur are understandably tied up in emotional knots; so exhausted that they're both sleeping in this morning.

So, yeah, I have a kind of light grading day and Tutu to look after, but the mood is dire this morning while we wait on word from the vet.

Public Accountability: Keeping it Simple

The new house is 90% finished after I completed the garage this weekend. Time to start focusing more on the people in my life and less on the to-do list.

Except this morning. This morning us work and I'm sure my email has a few surprises that cropped up over the weekend. Otherwise, first unit evaluations begin today; let's see how the kids do...

Also, Tutu with Little Bunny Tutu. And Auri, enjoying the sun as cats do.

Public Accountability: The Application

The deadline to apply for that tenure-track position is a week from today. Being that I'm a generally organized person, that's still a pretty reasonable cushion, but let's not take any chances. Today's focus is that application and hopefully getting it completely done, or at least ready to upload over the weekend. (I know full well that the hiring committee won't look at a thing until Monday the 19th, anyway...)

Today is a Daddy & Tutu day! We had pancakes for breakfast because there was Bisquick and a craving and now she is quietly playing with the cat's basket while Daddy does his morning correspondence at the kitchen table. At some point, we will have to repair to the office, but I'll figure that out later.

This kid is adorable. Her current obsession is In/Out: she takes an object and places it in a container, then takes it out; puts it in, giggles, takes it out. This can go on for quite some time.

Hi! What's giving you a little pleasure, today? #SoundsDirty
