And I'm still not sleeping great. I dream about rapids--Tim wonders if I have a bit of PTSD from the trip. There's just a lot to process about New Zealand, and so I guess I'm still doing that.
I still haven't started on my 'big' research project yet and summer is technically half over according to our school calendar (I hate being on quarters in June, I love being on quarters in August and September). I have revamped two syllabi for fall term so that's good--and one paper that has been 'in the works' for a bit is almost done. And we're about to send off a book manuscript. So it isn't like I'm a huge slacker.
I gave up on two books: "The War of the Encyclopedists" because I thought it was going to be a nerdy book a la Mr. Penumbra and it wasn't and "A Man at the Helm" because it is meant to be funny but I'm not finding it so. I'm reading a new book by Elin Hildebrand (sp?) that is pure chick lit and not funny but good characters so that's fine.
And I started on the baby onesie, Pepita. It is at the top of this post. Cute!
