Another day of storms, it seems. My backyard has reached its carrying capacity of water–there are standing puddles all in it after about and hour and a half of solid heavy rain. Not that it had time to dry out from the last batch of storms that came through last Thursday. It’s not helping my mood or my energy levels any that it’s so dark outside. I have too much to do to keep indulging myself in being lazy.
I did finally finish my weekly reading response last night. Hardest 750 words I have had to come up with in a long time. And I still have my revision project for that class to do. I’ve finished one of my papers for Drama and still need to add the details for the next paper there as well.
I don’t know how I’m going to get the grading done. So far it’s taken me fifteen minutes to grade each paper. That may not sound like a long time, but that’s only four papers in an hour–and with sixteen students, it’s a long time when all put together. I did do one intelligent thing, though–I told them the final paper only needed to be 750 words. That will really cut down on the reading time for them.
I suppose I’d better start on doing all of these things in some kind of order and accomplishing something. Wish me well!
PS Laundry is in the dryer and a paper is turned in.
