I scheduled a makeup day last Monday and taught Tuesday. I arranged for a sub on Wednesday and then Thursday was an open computer lab day. The students attended pretty well through it all but it was a lot of work and disruption to arrange it all.
When I retire, I can travel without all those arrangements. At this point, I am looking to even more complicated arrangements for the two weeks I want to be on the East coast in November.
Our time away was wonderful however. Everything went so well--no usual travel stresses except for very minor ones. The flights, the hotels, the meals, the sight-seeing, even golf for Jim--all was good. We had rooms with views--higher level floors in all three hotels.
This morning I felt tired and a bit down. We ended up laughing a lot in class and I felt much better at the end of the morning. I hope the students did too. I will miss that interaction a lot.
