The job that ate my life is hungry once again

Currently reading:
An American Childhood by Annie Dillard

Currently listening:
by R.E.M.

Rush is upon me once again. Hundreds of course packets and only two people to do the bulk of the work. Enough said. It's utterly crazy. I work usually until 6 or 7, and then take another two or three hours of work home with me. I haven't run regularly since June. NOT GOOD. However, the paycheck this Friday will be VERY GOOD.

As a last hurrah before my weekends are stolen away, Mark and I went up to Ann Arbor to visit his parents. We had a very nice time; there was a wonderful art fair and we also went running along the Huron River. The art fair made me wish that I (a had enough money to buy art and b) had somewhere to put it. Sigh.

As usual Joan gave me a few books to read. This time she also gave me a kayak. Yes, a kayak. She knows I enjoy kayaking, and since she doesn't really use hers anymore, she is pledging it to me. Since I don't have anywhere to put it, I am going to talk to my parents about storing it until such a time that I can store it myself. For now, it's still in Ann Arbor. I'm pretty excited about the kayak...now if only I had the capability of storing it I would be all set.
