So, been a while...

Holy crap! We haven't had this much rain in a looooong time. Lido Beach hit 11 inches in less than 18 hours. That's at least two months worth of rain in less than a day. Many of the parkways looked like lakes yesterday. I sometimes forget that a lot of the island sits at or below sea level.

Good news: Both my courses are going to run.
Bad news: Too many in my 7am to meet with them individually during the day. I actually have to go to class at 7am this semester :-(

Entropy increases: The second law of thermodynamics is taking over at work. Things are falling apart more quickly than we imagined. Hopefully we'll be out of here sometime this spring. Not sure how much longer there's actually going to be a college here.

Finally almost done with the first Game of Thrones book. I had to put it down for a while when things got crazy busy around here last month. I feel like I've come late to the party though. Everyone I know is talking about A Dance With Dragons. I have four more books before I get there.

Still kind of bummed that I've missed all the cons this year. But I saved a ton of money that I will need when/if we ever move out of here. Though I may nip into the city for a day for NYCC in October. We'll see.

Well, almost 9am and time for the morning meeting.

So I'm not the only one running around at work chasing my tail and getting very little accomplished?

I'm with you and the feeling or never being able to catch up> I just got back from a week in Calif (mostly my husband's work related)and in 2 weeks Mom and I will be off driving back to Ohio.

I feel like I haven't been home at all this summer.

As for Game of Thrones, I just finished the 3rd book. Waiting for my mother to finish the 4th so I can read it. I'm horribly addicted to them< I might have to break down and buy the 5th in Hardback

I'm actually reading the series on my kindle. I suspect by the time I get to the fifth book, the price will have dropped. Still cheaper than the hardcover now but I'll wait until I'm ready for it. I am also horribly addicted. I just started the second book this afternoon.

I haven't broken down to get a kindle yet, but I think the day is getting closer to when I do.

Happy reading :)
