My teaching schedule is amped up a bit this semester with two additional courses. While the workload will be greater, it'll help pay for the dental work I need to get this year. Also, they are half semster courses on Saturday mornings so while I'll have four total sections, I'll never be teaching more than three at the same time (though one is accelerated so twice as many assignments to grade in the same time).
I am planning on visitng hte Boston Wine Expo tomorrow. I've been itching for a Vitamix for a million years and the Northeast sales rep is demo-ing the product there and has a good value available, plus he's paying for my admission to the wine expo.
