I'm home today, but I'm not sick; just over worked with too much to grade, so I'm taking a "mental health day" in order to catch up. My Day started at: (that's the time it was after I had washed the dishes...I can't grade in a ditry house, EVERYTHNG has to be clean and tidy.)
(P.S. Don't mind the wall...I picked out paint colors a few weeks ago)
I've completed this much work:
And now all I have to grade are the dreaded Spanish essays. It's not that I don't love reading my student's work, but they take forever to go through! I can hear my students now..."Mrs. Thompson if you don't want to grade it then you could just not have us do it!" Not on your life! A few hours of pain on my part will do you some good! :)
I do plan on rewarding myself around 3 or 4pm and going for a 3 mile run and then when I get home I'll probably work until 10pm tonight...I can't wait until these are done!
Shem also has a lot of grading to do, in fact this is his most busy time of the school year, but he's so busy/stressed that I haven't taken any pictures of him yet. :) Maybe later.
