Got up and went to work this morning for a meeting. I've come to terms with the fact that teachers can't even pretend to have summers off! No one tells us we HAVE to work, but we need to work in order to be ready for the fall. That's just the way it is.
At this morning's meeting, I almost finished one of the many men's socks I'm knitting as holiday gifts:
I gave up on The Happiness Project. Many of my commenters last week said they found it, well, less than compelling. I agree. I also thought she went into a tedious amount of detail about her thought process. The author's life is such a good one that it doesn't make for much of a story.
But I'm leaving for the East Coast today to visit family, and I'm going to start The Orphan Master's Son when I get to the airport. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, so I'm anticipating a well-written book. It is set in modern-day North Korea, and I don't see how that can fail to be fascinating!
