I returned from Toronto on Saturday evening. It was another long day of sitting at airports, mostly because I didn't expect the Toronto airport to be so darned efficient. I arrived nearly three hours before my flight (taxi was early), and I made through check-in, immigration, security, and a bus ride to the other terminal in all of 30 minutes. So I sat marking exams. Actually, an airport is a remarkably good place to mark exams because you are essentially TRAPPED there. I marked and recorded most of the class of 75 students. Depressing, but efficient.
Since my return on Saturday I've fallen into a bit of a stupor. A funk. Not quite a depression - just a deep energy well, and from down here I have not wanted to contact anyone. I had obligatory telephone calls to parents and K on Saturday evening, but I ignored the phone yesterday, and I spent the day lying on the sofabed, mentally unable to move myself. Strange.
Today I was supposed to have a meeting with a student, but I cancelled it. I think that I am having a very difficult time getting myself motivated with regards to anything professional. Well, I WILL finish marking this afternoon...and I will look at other tasks that are mounting on the ever-lengthening "To Do" list. K arrives tomorrow evening and I am so painfully ready for our holiday.
