I am more than half way through my first semester as a tenured faculty member and I would describe myself this way: I am a total slacker. I did not change a thing for my classes this semester, I am not working on research the way I should, and I am watching lots of TV. I am enjoying myself, but I am also feeling guilty about it. I have plenty of research stuff to work on, but have not motivated to do much. Last Tuesday was the first day in a long time that I actually spent a good part of the day on research- and actually doing analysis and thinking about the results. It felt good and I hope to continue this. My work-at-home days this week are shot, though: Tuesday is election day, so D is home (no school), then Thursday morning is when I am finally getting those moles removed. I'm not planning to work much that day, although I could and probably should. We'll see.
Right now, I've got to get some lunch for D and me before her swimming lesson. If I get a chance, I'll blog more tonight, but at least I will tomorrow for sure! It feels good to be BACK!
