Oh, who was I kidding? I am nowhere near having a good shortlist for school applications. I may be tired of school tours, but I still haven't actually seen the following charter schools: Charles Village Montessori, City Neighbors (which has two campuses), or the Green School.
Also, who was I kidding when I felt relief this morning? Yes, my classes are over, but no that doesn't mean fewer deadlines: I am chair. We are doing a hire. We are doing preliminary interviews at the Modern Languages Association Convention Jan 5-8.
There are nothing but deadlines to come.
And my car was suspiciously slow to start this morning: is the battery dying?
And there is a list next to my computer which is very long and on which all items should really have been completed about a week ago.
And then there's my email, which is full of items which need my attention; for now I am just ignoring the ones that have scrolled off the bottom of the page.
Time to put my head in a bag and weep.
