Journey to My Father-In-Laws
It was a busy, hectic day today, filled with all sorts of tiring tasks with our Department meeting. I was able to handle things successfully even though it was not my cup of tea by any means. I also was able to get a number of research tasks done, including making up the chemical solutions needed for the new experiment I am having my research students collaborate on with me. It seems that there is never enough time for the sh*t that has to be done. I am learning, however, to just say to hell with it after a while. I put in an appropriate (in my opinion) level of time at work, and what does not get done.... oh well.
After getting a few things prepared for class next week, I have decided to end the workday, and I am going to head over to my father-in-laws to indulge in good conversation, libations, and pipes. It should be an excellent afternoon which should also result in a grand evening.
Saturday, I am going to watch a Cross Country meet. It should be interesting. I am being very faithful in my three miles every day. It is still very nice feeling good about those three of the five miles. I am not sure if I wish to push it to four yet, but I am considering it.
