Busy is as busy does...

I am so stinking busy!! 

I am finishing my Master's this month, so that's a bright spot on the horizon, but then I will just start shopping and stressing about a PhD program to attend, so... bleh... 

I am finalizing a few big projects at work and look forward to getting a literacy cart prototype built and tested. Very cool!  

 >>> Flatscreen interactive display on 5 foot rolling cart with Mac Mini, battery backup, Apple TV, 20 iPads, all the accessories, and maybe a charging station (eventually)<<<

Basically I get to sleep in my own bed for a week, assuming I can find the time to sleep... 

Let's summarize. I travelled to 6 villages in September after returning from Puerto Vallarta, jumped back into travel visiting Nunam Iqua, Alakanuk, Pilot Station, Kotlik, Scammon Bay, and ended up in Hooper Bay. All staff inservice was a blast! LYSD friends and coworkers spent Wednesday night - Friday afternoon together learning how to be a better team and serve our students more effectively, then headed home to respective sites. I then hosted two wonderful friends for a site tech inservice over the weekend. Since then I have started my days at the Mountain Village School every morning and then off to the office to slave away until 5:30, 6, or even 7pm, often with no breaks, even for lunch! -Whew. 



So whats the upside? I LOVE WORKING WITH TEACHERS. I generally love my job, as well, even if their are several details I could stand changing... 

All I can do is look forward to the winter when the pace of life seems to slow as the temperature drops. I ache for a regular workout routine and quiet "me time." It doesn't hurt that I have tickets to Maui hanging on the wall in front of my desk at work either.
