And this just in via e-mail…"Can it be, the Blog-Queen is not blogging?? Your fan club will revolt! Some of them are already revolting, mentioning no names - but let's not get into insults. All okay? just insanely busy?”
So, umm… profuse apologies!
Yes, yes… just insanely busy… Two presentations to give in different classes this week, one of which involved writing a draft thesis proposal – already! It’s only my second semester! I was engulfed in books last weekend….
Did that presentation on Monday, only to pop up for air long enough to get the election results before submerging myself in material for a (3-hour) presentation for another class yesterday.
And just in case you're thinking that all work and no play makes Sarah a dull girl... Never fear… I did make time for play, too. Went to see the musical “Evita” on Tuesday night, featuring my qualitative research methods professor as Juan Peron. (His real passion is opera, academics are a close second, I think… And he’s a brilliant prof, so you can just imagine his life as a performer.) And last night, went to an operatic production of Dead Man Walking put on the by Calgary Opera. The singing was great, but the production was hideously overdone and melodramatic (even for an opera) – in my humble opinion, of course!
So…. Don’t cry for me, fellow bloggers. The truth is, I never left you.
PS: In case you're wondering about the title, I'm not actually "running around" yet... Still on the walking program with the knee. I was happy this week to be spared needles in my leg by my Physiotherapist. He gave me a good handful of them in the back, instead. Something about too much core work... Will update on the running and knees more in the next post.
