Yes, I am again being a bad blogger. I went home for Christmas vacation and spent a week with my family. We went skiing where I almost blew out a knee and actually managed to ski into a creek. Knitting is safer. I got back to Quincy and the night before starting work with my new class came down with a very violent 24 hour virus. It sucked. Don't get it. I threw up for 10 hours and couldn't eat anything until today. But I had a good day with my new class today. One student said he could tell that I was going to be a good teacher. Now I'm still recouperating from illness (I almost fainted several times today) and being thankful that classes at QU don't start until Monday. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
