When I started this blog, I had plenty to say. I had observations on teaching, political semi-rants, cool mathematical content. Now and then I still have some of these. And I'm doing some interesting things at work, but telling all the details might compromise my anonymity. But the tidbits to relate to you all just aren't coming as fast as they used to. Not that I plan to give up the blog; I still want to expand my Advanced High School Math Project. And I'm sure I'll have more to say as the next presidential election approaches.
But this whole child-rearing proposition is...well...very tiring. The baby is great: healthy, smart, cute, determined (adjectives that have been independently confirmed, so it's not just Dad talking here). And for the most part, I'm enjoying my time with her, even if now and then I'm totally exhausted. By which I mean "now"; my wife and I have made a pact that we will be in bed by 9pm tonight, and we're giddy at the thought of a full night's sleep.
And this tiredness just doesn't leave much room for clever observation or for a whole lot of professional introspection or for finding obscure proofs online and rewriting them in high-school-student-accessible form or for political outrage. So, forgive me for the lapse in new material. Look for Ceva's Theorem next in the AHSMP so that my co-writer and I can start talking about lesser-taught triangle centers.
And now...a (hopefully) blissful, long night's sleep for a 1.3 drooplid math teacher.
