Another Sunday at the Office

My world was hit by another departmental loss this past week. It was one of those things that happen sometimes, so rarely that it seems impossible, and so bad that it seems more than impossible. Once again, the universe proves how very fragile we all are.

Those of us less close are muddling along. We've offered to grade; food is being shared. And I'm reminded once again how very wonderful my colleagues are.

And I'm trying to get grading done. I've done a fair bit, and written the final exam for tomorrow. But if I can just buckle down, I'll be in good shape by tomorrow to finish up by my last final on Thursday.


  1. I'm so sorry -- that must be so hard, especially at this time of year. I'm glad you have wonderful colleagues who are all pitching in, but still. . .
    Good luck with the last push!

  2. I'm sorry to hear that. We've had two of those in the past 3 years. It's hard. My condolences to you and your department.

  3. How terrible! I'm so sorry!!

  4. I'm very sorry as well...good luck on finishing your semester...


  5. take care. thinking of you.
