Classes are over for the week - Fall Break is ON, baby!
Tomorrow I leave for the weekend - I'm staying the night with one of my oldest friends and her husband, then it's off to Medieval Pop's house for my birthday (which is Saturday). I'll be back on Monday and will still have another day and a half of break left. The next week of classes is all tests for me (deliberately planned), so I have almost 10 days sans teaching!
I will try to get my article cranked out - I heard from the editor that it should be shorter than I was anticipating, so I'm farther along than I thought (7000 words rather than 8500).
I purchased that cashmere sweater today with a birthday gift certificate and it's back ordered but will be here in November just in time for the truly chilly weather.
