It’s Patriots Training Camp Eve and I can feel that familiar excitement building…! It’s going to be strange not attending every single session because of work but I’ll get there as much as I can. With the advent of technology and “Old Media” embracing “New Media” and the fact that I won’t be there every session, I’ve decided to forgo my traditional Mrs. B’s Training Camp Reports. I still may make some posts but the sense of urgency and need to rush home and drop everything to post is no longer necessary.
The PFW dudes will be live blogging from the tent and many people will likely be tweeting as well. Naturally, Mike Reiss and the other reporters will be posting from camp too and it’ll be all over the message boards and dissected and discussed before I even make it to my car. I’ll literally have nothing to say two hours later when I finally make my way through the traffic and get home. Besides that, there has been a ton of stress and other RL (real life) things to fill my mind these days and I really need to just go and enjoy camp without the stress of being “on duty”. So, I’m not saying that there won’t be ANY reports or podcasts but I’m giving myself permission to just play things by ear and enjoy myself. Fair enough?
School has been going well and even if I hated it I would still need to do it from a financial standpoint this year. But… I don’t hate it at all.. I actually Love It!! I’ve got a great group of students and while I love teaching my Severe Profound class during the year, I’m enjoying teaching academics to a higher level group this summer. It’s a treat to be able to cover different material and work with them. The hours are also great and who can beat a 4 day weekend all summer?
Yesterday, I took a nice long ride on the Blackstone River BikeWay and it was great. I’m lucky to have it so close by and it’s beautiful. I had planned on riding my bike back and forth to school a lot this spring and summer but unfortunately, we’ve had so much rain, it’s been hard to plan it. I hope to get back out on the path again soon.
As for right now, I’m hoping do some reading before crashing tonight because once camp hits it’s Patriots and nothing but Patriots for me from here on out!
