Not much has been going on. The second week of the semester is over and I feel like we’ve settled in.
DeLyle was here for about twenty-four hours on Tuesday and Wednesday for a job interview on campus. Our fingers are crossed but her would-be supervisor said outright that she’d never supervised anyone older than her and was looking for someone to mentor,* so our hopes aren’t up too much.
My sister is in Florida in the run-up to Hurricane Irma, but last I heard from Mom was that they’re going to be leaving before the storm gets there**.
Oh, my sister got married and went to Florida for her honeymoon. I wasn’t able to attend.
I have two employee evaluations due in the next few weeks. This is something that I’m still learning how to do. I’d done one last month, but as the sidekick. This next one I’m the leader and my boss is the sidekick, then the third one is all me.
It’s less than a month before I go back to St. Louis for the MLA conference and visit with my family.
Somewhere in the back of my brain I’m putting together a post about communication and mentoring from supervisors. It’s still percolating, though. I’ll have something more substantial to post in a few days, I hope.
I’m sorry this post is so lame.***

**She just posted on Facebook that they’re on their way home now.
***No, really, I am.
