245/365-2 Back to Reality

"Paper Chase"

And week two of the semesters begins...Despite having the day off yesterday, the work week got off to a rough start today.  The alarm was set for 5:50.  We got up at 6:44.  Neither of us remembers the alarm going off all.  The scary thing is that if it went off at all, it went off six times.  We have never slept through the alarm once, let alone six times!  Surely Weber didn't hot the snooze button six times in his sleep!  Hopefully this is not our new reality.  Oh, and did I mention that I teach a 7:30 class?  I managed to make it to class on time including making copies on the way.  Boy am I glad that we live only a mile and half from school!

And being the second week of school, the first batch of homework assignments is coming in.  Somehow in this supposed paperless society, I am still inundated with paper - papers to grade, music for analysis, class handouts, and yes, a paper agenda.  If it weren't for binders and clips, my world would be absolute chaos.  Well, it still kind of is chaos, but there is no doubt that it could and would be a lot worse without these things!

There is no meaning to the labels on the clips, but they do make me chuckle every now and then.

As long as we are talking about paper, here is another mandala made from one of yesterday's photos of the pencils.
