See ya in five weeks?

Today was my last day of my first five-week summer teaching term. I got my schedule for my second five-week term a few days ago and it didn't look bad, but my boss called me today and said my schedule had changed slightly. Slightly being adding two classes on a new day and taken away one of the old classes (maybe). The first five weeks, I taught 10 classes on four days a week. Of those four days, my one-way drive time was an hour to an hour-and-a-half one day a week and about 20 minutes the other three days. The second five weeks, I'll be teaching 12 (maybe 13 but we'll ignore the maybe for now) classes on five days a week. Of those five days, my one-way drive time will be an hour to an hour-and-a-half three days a week and around 45 minutes the other two days. So I have to work one more day a week or about four classroom hours, six driving hours, and one prep hour more a week. I technically will have two days off but one of those will likely include a conference call with my boss and other teachers and will have to include prepping for my classes and the other will probably be for cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and the like. This means if you felt like you never saw me the first five weeks, it is just going to be worse for the next five weeks! I'll be around as much as I can, but don't think I'm ignoring you if I don't reply to things and don't worry about me if I don't post for a bit.

The one good thing is that I didn't teach Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays under the old term and I don't teach Mondays under the new one. This weekend is still part of the old term so I get a four-day weekend!! Since this might be the last moment I have to relax for a while, I want to cram as much fun into it as possible but also a lot of down time. I'm going to see Othello tomorrow and I need to spend some time on laundry and grocery shopping, but other than that I can do anything I want this weekend. I've got a few ideas of things I want to do but can't decide if there is anything else I should do and how much of my weekend I should devote to each activity. What do you guys think?
