At the End of the Day

A couple of accrediting teams came to the college this week. SACS was the first group to visit. I was part of a group of librarians who were interviewed. From all indications, things went well.

My perceptions were confirmed the following day. A campus-wide e-mail was sent out from our president. Apparently, he was happy enough with the verbal report to declare Monday a holiday for twelve-month employees such as myself. School isn't in session on Monday anyway-- it's a fall break day.

The other accrediting team represented a national organization reaffirming its accreditation of one of the college's programs. I've not heard how that went.

My fantasy baseball team, the Gashouse Gorillas, finished in third place in my league. I had a good late-season run to finish third in the regular season. The team also finished third in the playoffs. Not bad. Not bad at all.

I took a little bit of a break the past couple of days-- working half-days yesterday and today. I need a break to recharge my batteries, and what with Monday being a holiday that should help. One thing though, I've not been much of a fan of short work weeks because there always seem to be more work performed.

I considered heading down to Hattiesburg today, but I'm not really in the mood to travel too much this weekend. I'm going to stick around Jackson Friday. I may head to Fenian's later this evening, and perhaps go to Martin's or Don's later. I might go see a college football game on Saturday.

Otherwise, I'll be resting until Tuesday morning. I've got to open up the library that morning.

Glad you like the blog. I hope you enjoy reading it. As far as the quote is concerned, it came from a Los Angeles Times article from about two weeks ago. I mentioned it in this blog entry.
