Rough Week

Classes started last week. Theology, as I predicted is going to be a bear. The reading is tedious and written by priests. (Just an FYI, priests as a rule do not write lightly...). We are looking at about 200 pages a week. Add to that Shakespeare, in which we are reading a play a week.
My pleasure reading, the Golden Compass, has fallen to the back of the pile and I am lucky if I get a page read before I am asleep.

Thursday, we got our first real snow of the season. 3 inches in 5 hours that then was topped with ice and finished with rain. My drive home that usually takes 40 minutes, took almost three hours. The roads were a mess. >:(

Then, yesterday, I broke down and took down the Christmas tree. The cat yelled and bit my ankles the entire time. (She didn't want it to come down either...) My apartment seems dull and drab.........

THREE HOURS! That's awful.
I hope the rest of the week is better. Hey, now that your Christmas tree is down, you can decorate for valentine's day!

Shakespeare might not be your "pleasure reading"...but at least it's fun. :) What plays are you reading? When I took a Shakespeare course in college I had never read any of the histories, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed them.

I hate snow! Knock on wood, we haven't gotten anything really bad (or even remotely bad) yet. The big storm everyone was so worried about this week turned out to be wind and rain by us. Move back to NJ, Luke....

Do you get to do Richard III? If so you should enjoy how different he is to the Richard III in A Rose for the Crown.
