Getting Back In The Working Groove

After a lot of time off around the holidays, it's a little odd to settle back into the daily work environment. I get up in the morning at 4:45 AM usually; or, at least before--but now, the officers have seemed to have gotten a better hold of the prison yard in the mornings, so we're getting into work a little earlier than before. This puts me at getting up at about 4:15 AM!#
And I work up until at least 4PM if not later.
I'm thankful for the distraction though, because it makes the time go by so much faster. This is Monday thru Thursday, and on Friday I'll be starting my teaching back up, as we are at the beginning of a new semester for our classes. I'll be teaching:

- Creative Writing (with a focus on the short story and novel)
- Earth Science (All about Earth and her biosphere)
- Character 101 (A psychology-based class with a focus on good citizenship and anger management, substance abuse, bad habits, vices, etc. etc.)
- G.E.D. (I'll be going back up to the Education Building for a few hours to help out with G.E.D. classes-teaching English and science)

So, I have some busy days ahead of me.
Just hope I can keep it all together.
And, keep all of my newly, re-acquired friends and family.
