I’m back, but you wouldn’t know it from the lack of posts around here. I’m uber busy at work with all the students back in session and me finding myself swamped with loads of work. I’m still mad that I didn’t get a pay increase because I get told I’m invaluable all the time and am running around like crazy with all the courses I manage. Grr.

Anyway, the trip to CO was good – but sooo hot. Who knew it could be so hot at home coming from TN!? The difference is (other than humidity) a general lack of a/c out west because nobody expects that kind of heat over there. And you don’t believe in global warming!?

Claire was cantankerous on the flight back (cried/screamed for about 45 minutes – was exactly what I was dreading), but we survived and there were no catty remarks this time, thank God.

I’m tired. Don’t you hate it when you come back from vacation more tired than when you left for one? I really need to learn to give myself at least a day of buffer between getting back from a trip and returning to work. It doesn’t help matters when your baby is all off schedule and cries for the first 2 – 3hours of the evening and then wakes up at 4:30 two days in a row. Oy. The joys of children.

I guess you could say I’m a little grumpy today.
