I realized last night that I have forgotten to change the title countdown for a while. Usually I try to do that on Sunday or Monday morning at the latest. It's not such a big deal, but I don't actually remember when it was last accurate. Am I off two weeks? Three? Just one?
The countdown is on the title to help me realize that this year will not last forever and that I need to keep the end in mind. Sometimes I wonder if it is a positive or a negative to be marking off the weeks. Don't prisoners and soldiers do that to chart their time? At the moment, I dread the day the title bar reads "or what will I do with the next week?" However, when that does happen, I'm hoping that I will be rejuvenated and ready to return to teaching.
But I still had to figure out the exact number of weeks and change the title. Look at a calendar for 2013 and 2014 and physically count the weeks remaining. And I was tired, and so I went to bed instead.
Look for a change in the number at the top of the blog sometime soon.
