Hi everyone! Just in case you were wondering, I started yet another staycation on Friday, September 3rd that is going to last until this Sunday, September 12th. Not only did I have the extra days that I needed to use before I lost them at the end of the year, but I also have a guest staying with me this Wednesday through Sunday. My guest is the Chief Operations Officer for the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation (click here to make a small donation!). He’s in town to go out on some “thank you” visits to our donors and, if the topic of raising new funds comes up, then he’s in town to raise some money, too! Since I’m on vacation this week and because I serve as the Treasurer of the Foundation Board of Trustees, I’m traveling with him to meet some of these folks and talk to them about what we’ve been doing lately.
So far it’s been pretty fun!
I have a bunch of pictures to post on JerseySmarts.com and a bunch of stories to tell, too. The pictures range from our latest harvest at the local CSA farm to my time on the beach in Asbury Park two weeks ago. The stories are interesting, too, as they talk about how my classroom was a bit of a wreck during the first class that I taught this semester (this past Tuesday morning) and how I almost got into a bit of an altercation with one of the folks at the college bookstore after my class was over!
Stay tuned – I’ll be writing more tomorrow and the next day!
