The End of Summer

August 21st, 2013 at 02:49 pm

Yesterday one of my train buddies reappeared -- he is a high school teacher, so he doesn't ride the train in the summer. It was nice to catch up. He had a very exciting summer of travel, while I didn't have much to offer (my week in Florida sounded pretty lame in comparison to Ireland, the Colorado Rockies, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon). Smile

Just another sign that summer is over.

Today the students are moving in. All the main parking lots are cordoned off so that they can park and unload. Staff members are ticked off, as they always are. I just contentedly walk in from the station.

There is also upset in our office -- our offices have recently moved to a new wing of our building. Well, there is still a lot of construction and setting up, and now several staff members are fighting bitterly over the division of space and what kind of cubicle walls should be installed. Sheesh! I'm afraid it's dredging up deeper feelings from a staff member who doesn't really want to be part of our team and feels demoted.

I feel like, isn't life hard enough, without getting bent out of shape about your office? If you can get your work done, it's good enough, isn't it? Apparently not.

I believe I had another no-spend day -- can't think of a thing I bought yesterday.

Last night I made a salad of lettuce, pepperoni, hard-boiled egg, cheese, and sunflower seeds. Yum. This morning I grabbed the last of the frozen pumpkin muffins for breakfast, and some frozen chicken stirfry for lunch. However, it looks like there is a "Taste" street event on campus today, so I might have to check that out for lunch. See if there are any freebies, or at least, cheapies. The stirfry will keep till tomorrow.

    Isn't it at least sort-of exciting when they all come back? I'm always filled with both dread and anticipation.

    I do love it when the students come back! Right now I'm looking out my office window at a big tent where hamburgers are being served to students and parents -- the smell is great, there's music blaring, lots of smiles!
