I spent a good deal of time today trying to arrange an alternate location for the Hogwarts computer room. It's been enormously popular, and at times there has been a lengthy wait for students and teachers alike to access one of the school computers. Aside from the delay, it ties up the Room of Requirement, making it unavailable for other purposes.
And so, after my last class, I dashed into Hogsmeade and went to the Ministry by Floo. However, I had a terrible time trying to explain to the gentleman I spoke with at the Ministry that the school computers must be connected to the Muggle *Internet*, and *not* the Floo network. On days like today, I think that a year of Muggle Studies ought to be a minimum for non-Muggles.
It's been quite a year so far, trying to juggle a full teaching load with Headmistress duties. I haven't played a game of chess in *weeks*. I spoke to Albus in his portrait, and we are going to have a match sometime this weekend. I should be able to move the pieces for him. Thank goodness I can still speak with him in his portrait, it's not quite as daunting as having him completly gone would be.
