T Plus One Week from Taiwan

Y and I returned from Taiwan a week ago, but it still seems like we were at her parents’ house only yesterday. We are still digging through Christmas cards, correspondence, bills, and a stack of other less important mail. We have almost caught up with our house cleaning after vacuuming all of the floors, washing a load of dishes, and generally cleaning up accumulated clutter. Miao Miao has been as helpful as any cat can: not so much, but at least she’s very cute with her attempts at cat help. Y is still battling jet lag, and I am to a lesser extent. Y did get back into her weekly routine reading the Sunday newspaper and going through the sales ads. I suspect that the cold weather and the slightly higher than outside yet still very cold temperature inside our house hasn’t accelerated our re-acclimation to EST and the routines of NE Ohio. If anything, the weather has probably impeded our progress. Nevertheless, we struggle on to get our work done so that we can leave Kent for our professional lives as soon as possible.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
