Only worked half a day today. Was hard to drag myself away from the beach. I paid by having to hit the ground running when I got to work, putting out fires, answering voice and e-mail messages, meeting with staff and students and librarians, and generally tring to do as much as I could with the short day that I had. It was one of my chaos days. On a more calming note, new student workers are starting this week and I look forward to getting to know them.
