hmmm... my weekend wasn't so great....
I gave my students their final exam on Friday so i've spent the weekend looking over their final lab reports and exams.... I'm up to my eyeballs in grading but have absolutely ZERO motivation to complete it. Oh well, i still have a few more days to get through this mountain since i don't submit grades until Thursday.
But the big kicker was that i spent last night in the emergency room. :( It seems that a problem that i thought had been taken care of 2 years ago has come back with even worse symptoms. Not a good sign. It COULD be nothing, it COULD be major... But the bottom line is that i won't know until i have another, rather invasive procedure. DAMN! :( Oh well... at least i have grading and knitting to keep me occupied while i'm waiting around for doctors.... :rollseyes:
However, one good thing this morning was that the red-shouldered hawk
(who lives in the woods behind our house) came up and sat on a branch close enough for me to go out on the deck to take pictures of him. He was MAGNIFICENT!!
Didn't even flinch with me creeping closer and closer to him... Obviously the cats were NOT allowed out...
I love that bird and his mate... they can have the squirrels but not my cats!!
P.S. Funny note: As i was sitting in the ER waiting to be seen, i was filling out my Molecuar Biology exam key. I think the ER doc was more interested in talking about the class i teach and taking my exam than examining me!!
