Behind.

I am way behind--like, three weeks behind--on grading blogs.  I'm even further behind on the other things that need to be done. 

Thank God Friday is the last day of class, for me.  And I have a two hour block of time on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, that I will accept any late work: one block of scheduled final exam time per class taught.  After those times, I will be turning in the grades for that class's final grades. 

Other than that, the kids are in school, and I am not.

No, I likely won't catch up on housework then, either.  Not at the rate of speed (the speed of the mighty sloth) I am able to work.  But I may be able to catch up on my writing, if I can get the brain fog to clear enough.

That is the question, isn't it, though?  Because that is the reason I'm so freakin' far behind in my grading.

  1. It sucks to have to think when you feel like crud. Hopefully you feel better for the holidays.

    In the meantime, I suggest a nice Irish coffee. I'm told they do wonders.

    1. I have a lovely blackberry wine at my left elbow. It suffices, and is quite tasty, too. Think one of the all-fruit preserves with a bit of the flavor of the seeds added as an undertone, and you have what it tastes like. Probably be brilliant with a good, sharp cheese.

    2. There's a guy at our farmer's market who sells fruit wines. He's usually got the longest line.

    3. I encourage y'all to try a couple. The ones I've tried (a Celtic style pear, a cranberry, and a blackberry) have all been really, really good.

  2. I almost feel guilty, having another lazy day and doing nothing. Still, I put my time in for forty years. Hang in there, one day you will look back and shudder when you remember working.

    1. I couldn't do the hard, physical tasks you do in the course of keeping up your place hiding in the mountains. I do enjoy my job, when I feel capable of it. I enjoy actually teaching immensely. Reading the pieces and offering feedback where needed is also fun. I just don't like placing a letter or number grade on the grading.

  3. Hopefully you get better... I know that sucks, not being able to do what you need to do.
