I met Courtney down in the cafeteria for lunch. She caught me up on the department drama, which seems to be omnipresent with that group. She has a lot of things up in the air right now in both her professional and personal life. We went for a walk after we ate.
I spent the next two hours preparing for my 3:00 Diversity Education session for Mark’s area. It went better than I thought it would, and ended after about a half hour, though we had an hour scheduled for it. Of course, afterwards, I thought of several things I could have done or said that would have made it better. Oh well. The employees are undoubtedly happy to have their annual requirement out of the way, and the managers are undoubtedly glad that they didn’t have to do it.

At home, I had dinner, and started laundry. Robert arrived close to 10:00, and between and after laundry we did the latest Independent crossword puzzle.
