Off to camp

It’s Labor Day weekend, the official end of the summer, and that means that we’re heading up to my parents’ camp for one last weekend. I’m hoping it will be warm enough to swim, but if not, we’ll go hiking or play bocce or sit by the campfire.

I’ve only been back to work for a week, but the first week of classes was long, filled with the excitement of seeing students who have returned after the summer and the tedium of meetings where administrative tasks get done. My campus office was painted and carpeted this summer, which means I returned to find all of my belongings — including every single book from my shelves — packed in cardboard boxes. It’s been a week of unpacking and getting ready for the school year to come.

So yeah, I feel I deserve a long weekend.

End of the summer
