Yes, I have a two inch stack of papers to grade this week. Gotta love that yesterday at the race kids were asking, "How did I do on my essay?" - you know, the essay they just turned in the day before? I laughed, "You think I graded those already?!" I always feel bad when I have a small outburst like that, but I could see his mom grinning at me from the door, so it couldn't have been that bad. Sometimes I think I am too uptight. Sigh. Fortunately, this kid can handle a little sarcasm. He's a good kid - they all are, really.
Yes, I decided on the fly to mirror the history time periods, so I am re-thinking everything for next quarter so even more work to do. Yes, I have to spend between 2 and 6 hours at school on any given day this week - but that's not 10-11 hours, so WOO HOO, it's Fall Break!
So my usual impossible list is pared down to - check if there are any sweet potatoes in any of the patches. Plant some lettuce and broccoli, and clean the basement. And take a few naps and go on a lot of long walks (I think best while walking).
Oh well, time to get ready for Mass. Happy Sunday, everyone!
