I need more time in the day. Or, I need to do less.
I have it “easy” this summer. I’m only teaching one online class, and there are only 9 students enrolled. But I’m having a difficult time getting everything on my To-Do list done. Between taking care of my son and regular household chores, I’ve been slacking on the teaching. I do the bare minimum, which just isn’t my usual style. I’m trying to be OK with it for now. But I keep thinking that in the fall, I’ll be teaching four classes — 2 on campus, and 2 online. I don’t know how I’m going to do it. But I have to.
I did manage to accomplish one 2010 goal over the weekend — I made mozzarella cheese. I was too engrossed in the process to take photos, unfortunately. Next time, I will. It was a mostly successful effort. The texture was a little off (my milk didn’t curd as well as it was supposed to), but the taste was there. It was an easy process, but it’s important to pay attention to temperature. I’m going to try it again soon, and will post photos and more details then.
