Today I feel like every ounce of energy and creativity was given at school. It’s great to have students who are engaged and responsive. It does, however, take energy to respond to their various concerns, emails, HW questions, personal circumstances, etc.
Thankfully there was a penny at the vending machines this morning when I first arrived on campus. Then a little later in the day, I spotted a penny through the glass windows of the student study room. It was just teasing me! I went into the room, wound my way through about 20 students, picked up the penny, exclaimed “Day #388” and left.
At 6:30 this evening after my classes, Doc stopped by to give me a kiss before leaving campus. He found a penny in the elevator as he approached my office.
When I finally arrived home, there was a love note on the dining table. “Found 1¢ at Carl’s Jr.”
So it looks like we each got our 2¢ worth today.
Today’s Total: 4 pennies
