Grades were due yesterday, but some of my faculty didn’t get them in until the last minute — always a nail biter. But they’re done now and we’re all heaving a huge sigh of relief. Today is our holiday lunch, and when it’s over, I’m going to pick up a new desk for myself. I’ve been writing on my dining room table, which means the center of the house is a disaster area. Not that anyone sees it except for Izzy and me, but I would love to be able to sit in front of a window where I can daydream and write and have space rather than sitting where I eat. And I’m loving this new desk . . . .
During the holidays, I’ll be seeing my friends and family, which means Izzy’s going to see some of his friends, too. Unfortunately, that means traveling. Not one of Izzy’s favorite things to do. BUT he now has a new car seat, and I tested it out last week when we went to my daughter’s house. He still shivered during the whole hour and fifteen minute trip, but at least he wasn’t sliding all over the place, and I think that, with time, he’ll feel better about the traveling . . . especially if the end of the trip means he gets to run around with two other dogs in an enclosed backyard sans leashes. Nothing better than seeing dogs running around free!
Izzy’s getting into the holiday spirit, too 🙂
