I just realized that I do, in fact, have two-and-a-half hours between the time I get home tomorrow and the time I leave for the airport for ICFA, which means that I actually can use that time for tasks (packing, watering plants, sending belated checks, etc. and so on) and possibly even get eight hours sleep tonight (even if I have to get up at five to finish grading). I am unutterably relieved. I swear, I can actually feel
the panic draining out of my shoulders.
GOD, I need a vacation.
