Marathon

I've never ran a marathon, and if you are a betting person, the safe money is on I never will.  But I feel as though I have just completed my own personal marathon...a teaching marathon, and I have lived to tell the tale!

I have been teaching a weekend express class.  It meets for 17 hours per weekend for 3 weekends for a grand total of 51 hours of teaching!  That is of course in addition to my two mornings of teaching 7 a.m. classes and 2 nights of 7 p.m. classes.  Oh yeah, and doing all of my law work in between! 

It's been a long haul.  I have taught from 5:30-9:30 on Friday nights, from 8-4 on Saturdays, and from 12-5 on Sundays.  That Friday night to Saturday morning turn around was tough!  To make things even worse, on the second & third weekends, I got to spend my Saturday night and Sunday mornings grading research papers so that I could return them on Sunday afternoon. 

I am just so happy that I have lived through it!  It's a huge weight off of my shoulders, and I know Lola will be especially glad not to be an orphan on the weekends any more.  Thank goodness for my friends Jennifer and Lisa who let her out on potty breaks, and especially Jennifer who even went the step beyond to give Lola her doses of medicine on two of those three weekends!
