I am more than ready for a vacation, believe me. However, I don't know about this travel schedule I've gotten myself into for March:

March 9-16: Home (Florence, AL) for spring break

March 18-19: Washington, DC for a special trip funded by the UNC system so that selected ECU faculty can meet with program officers with NEH and the Department of Education

March 20-24: New York City for CCCC

March 26-28: New Jersey for a meeting with MediaCommons


On another note, I just want to express how frustrating and irritating it is when I send stuff to people a couple of weeks or a month early, they forget all about it, then they snipe about my tardiness. What does one do about this? I want to send items out as soon as I have them done; do I also have to send reminders that I sent the items?
