Fall Break and other updates

Fall Break/Work

Here, the students and faculty have off during the week of Thanksgiving. So I walk into quiet halls, but a pretty full library this morning. Of course, it's not time off for us here at the library. In fact, no one's really off. Faculty have research to catch up and exams to write and students have only two weeks until exams begin. Opportune timing, perhaps, but not a vacation for any of them really.

I'm busy because we're still short-staffed, but that should change in the New Year. We're in the final steps of hiring two new people that we hope to have in place early in 2011. Fingers crossed.

Running
Ran twice last week. Short, easy runs. I'm not training right now and there's no need to push my rehabbing leg. Just trying to enjoy the gorgeous weather we've been having (75 degrees and bright sunshine today) while it lasts. (Rumor is it will drop to freezing on Thanksgiving Day.)

Nano
Nanowrimo is going amazingly well. Yesterday, I was only about 400 words behind. I've caught up and forged ahead. I'm attending a Write-In tonight where I'm hoping to pound out a bunch of words. With the holiday and long weekend this week, I am hoping to finish 50K a day or two early. That would be awesome. My first win!

Current count, btw, 37,307.

Nano has contributed to November flying by. I've been busy at work, too, and anxious to get back out running. I'm looking forward to a few quiet days at home this weekend, just me and rosepurr. Then December, finals, the end of the semester, and Christmas.

Whew.
