Spring Semester 2012
My semester at a glance: I’m taking three graduate courses, two on campus and one online. I’m teaching one section of composition that meets twice a week. Three hours of office hours. Three days at home with my seven week-old baby.
Writing load: 20 pages of fiction every two weeks. Online postings in forums for two classes. About two pages of rhetorical analysis every week.
Reading load: Between thirty-sixty pages of fiction to critique. Student papers and journals (x 20). 100-250 pages of readings on rhetoric. Two textbook chapters on Adult Development and Instruction. As much fiction as I can squeeze in.
My family’s week at a glance: Moes’s Monday. Tuesday – My long day on campus. YMCA Wednesday. Thursday – Basketball practice for my husband’s team. Friday – open. Saturday – Husband coaches. Fruit/veggie co-op pick-up. The occasional play-date. Sunday – Church and Sunday School. Grocery shopping. Laundry.
My kids and I were all born on days that correspond with a multiple of seven. My youngest daughter’s name has all of the letters of my name except for one, but rearranged. I’m a twin (but I haven’t had any multiples myself…yet). I met my husband at summer camp (cute, right?).
