A Kind Friend
A kind friend e-mailed to ask if I was OK, since I was ill when I last posted in July and I haven't posted since. That was so sweet of her! In any case, I am fine -- I just returned from that trip to some big changes at work that have taken up most of my time and energy. I'm teaching a college course for the first time and I'm nervous as anything, although I hope my students don't realize it! It's all new territory as we (the librarians at my community college) created this course from scratch, so it's the first time any of us are teaching it. We also have a student population that is often behind where they should be in terms of reading and writing, so that adds another layer of challenge.
But I am fine, in good spirits in fact, and I promise the stocking stuffer posts will start again in a few days! I have loads of post ideas stockpiled, enough for every day between now and Christmas, I think!
Thanks again to the kind friend. It made my day to hear from her!
