Couple things

We got dumped with about 8" of snow over the last few days. This is not something I was hoping for. I want spring. I thought we had it too, for a while there, when we got +20 degree weather, and the snow banks were almost completely gone. The biggest down side to this is the number of idiot drivers that have surfaced. There are a lot of people in this town who own trucks and don't know how to drive them. I've witnessed a dozen or so very close calls in the 3 trips around town that I've made since it snowed again. Definitely makes me want to stay home.

On a somewhat related note, I started typing about how we got dumped with snot. Mmmm...

Maybe it's working

I think I'm getting the hang of this teaching thing. I'm getting better at taking home only as much work as I'll get done. I'm learning how to organize and parcel out my work for the week - also known as only doing what I have to. I have lots of ideas for what I want to do with the courses, lessons, and labs. I've even started on redoing some of them. And I've figured out how to do quite a few things better for next time. And if I remember, I might even put in some of the by-the-book things I'm supposed to be doing. In theory.

A co-worker asked me today if I feel in charge now. My reply - maybe in a few years.
