Break time

This week has been fall break. A much needed respite in the middle of the semester. People who don't teach have no idea how draining it is. Not only are you "on stage" for 5 hours a day or so, you have to deal with a thousand questions being thrown at you simultaneously all during those 5 hours. Then you have to prep for hours and hours to make those 5 hours look easy....It's a never ending, draining cycle. So a week off is awesome.

Let's add to that mix, two classes towards my Ph.D. UGH!!! The amount of work for those classes are pretty daunting. Reading and thinking about things outside my realm of experience. Ugh.

The good news is that Crossfit is starting to pick up again. I went through a period where I questioned whether Crossfit was for me, I also had a number of injuries, and for the last couple of weeks my knee has been swollen. There is no real pain, just swelling which makes it difficult to walk and such. That has been scaring me, though the fact that there was no pain kind of convinced me that there was no serious injury. I actually think it's all related to my back, but that's another story.

That's it really. This break has been very productive. I've painted the living room, bought a new dining set. Got some classwork done. Today I go to the dentist. Tomorrow is Friday and it's over. Could have been longer :(
