I decide to step away, and I kind of fall off a cliff, huh?
There really hasn’t been much to report lately , but here are the highlights:
• I’m eyebrow deep in research for my independent study thesis (I’m planning an independent, democratic high school with a mission focused on meaningful academic rigor, citizenship, and social justice) and in grading (really, REALLY bad) analysis papers from my students.
• The weather broke (at least, for the moment). It’s been above 60° for the last few days, and tomorrow’s supposed to hit 70°, but it’s going back into the 50’s for the later part of next week.
• The Chilis are planning a trip to DC in two weeks. I was really, really hoping to get to Florida so we could try to see Gerry again, but that fell through (the time when Mr. Chili should have been planning the trip coincided with the time we were planning and celebrating Father Chili’s memorial service). I’m hoping to plan at least an hour or two to spend with Gerry this summer; I miss him too much.
That’s about it. Research and grading, trying to emerge from the fog and funk of winter, and planning a trip. What have YOU been up to?
