I survived a week of an icy commute! Since most of the Midwest (and lots of other areas of the country) had bad weather, I'm sure there are many who can commiserate. Thankfully, we made it to work and my son to his finals (and back) with no incidents. Most roads were not too bad once we made it into town. Country roads were um... interesting.
I was looking forward to sleeping in today. However, they badly needed all of us non-student employees so I agreed to work. Those students who are still in town all have finals today and they'll be leaving for home destinations (Mom and Christmas cookies) as soon as their finals are over.
I figured one more nine hour day is do-able and it is all OVERTIME. I'll take my box of tissues, my cold medicine, and Chap Stix again. There are lots of people with colds and flu (this weather will do it to you) and being finals week, no one can stay home. Plenty of germs floating around. I can do anything for five (six) days... well, almost.
My husband is working at one of the bookstore's remote locations so he hasn't had all the contact with sick people that I have... except Christopher and me. I can feel every huge textbook I've put away as well as every nine hour day but it is all worth it in the end. Even the teenagers were dragging by yesterday afternoon.
This is the only computer time I've had so I haven't been able to answer e-mails. As it is, I'd better hurry and get ready.
Off to work...
