I don't like it when somebody schedules things involving me without giving me a fair warning.  Somebody did this yesterday and trying to do it today.  I am not a happy person.

Yesterday, I had to reschedule the online course orientation meeting with my students.  Yeah, I am crazy to schedule work-related stuff on Sunday, but taking care of students prior to the beginning of semester (it started today) helps me to avoid quite a few problems later.  Many students take online courses because they are working long hours during the week and can only meet over the weekend.  I don't mind, really -- does not matter to me when I work, as long as I am spending a reasonable amount of time.  If I work over the weekend, I have time to write during the week.

Anyway, yesterday I had to reschedule from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.  Well, the person kept me late and so I was a few minutes late for the session.  Of course, technology was not cooperating, as it always does when you're running late; have you noticed that?  Not a good start for students, especially those who have never taken online courses before.  If I had a chance to login early, I probably would have been able to resolve most, if not all, problems ahead of time.  See why I am upset???

Today, this same person is trying to do the same thing.  I already have a meeting scheduled for this afternoon and now this person wants to reschedule.  NO!  I have a long list of things to do today and need to focus on my own committments.  In fact, I could have shortened the list if I did not waste three hours yesterday, helping this person with something that actually does not benefit me at all.  So, here, feeling better! :)

I did not have time to write this week because registering students for both Summer and Fall semesters and getting ready for next week (classes start on Monday) consumed every waking moment.  However, I am almost done with pre-planning and might even get a chance to write a bit this weekend.  I am busy but not overwhelmed -- such a good feeling!  The last couple of years have been absolutely crazy so I am so excited about gradually retaining control of my life.
