my spouse is here and we will spend a wonderful work free weekend at My City. maybe eating out at our favorite arabian restaurant? and spending time in bookstore is definitely on our list as well.

enough quality time to gain power again. last week and the conference sucked all energy out of my body and soul like a vampire. i left the house early every morning and did not return way after midnight. but we had lots of good food, and this time i had time to join them for the dinners as well. and i guess most of the participants enjoyed the conference, as they were not aware of what was going on behind the scenes. like i did.

and next week the semester starts again, with dozens of first year students wandering around full of hopes and dreams and questions. i have to prepare handouts early monday morning to be prepared for them. but now: i want to think only about my precious weekend.
