Actually I never actually went anywhere this summer. The past three weeks have been more than full at work and I haven’t had the time or the energy to do much else, including ranting in this space. For those of us working in the central offices of our overly large school system August is the busiest month, with lots of training session and preparation for the new school year. To add to my fun, I’ve also been cleaning up some leftover projects from the previous job I moved from in June. That part probably wouldn’t have been so bad if my old and new offices were in different buildings.

Things will return to normal next week – busy, but managably so, interesting and plenty of variety. Actually, when teachers return to their schools a week from Monday (and the kids come back a week later), it will actually get rather quiet around our place for a short while. Which offers some time to clean up, physically and mentally.
