I should be grading. Wahhh! I have two sections normed and entered in and ready to hand back and really I should be trying to get that third one all the way done and ready to hand back next week too. But I don't think that is going to happen. Why did I think that I needed to start with a different section than the 8 am class? If I had done the late afternoon class just like the other times, I probably could have saved all the norming and grade entering for the last minute and gotten them all back. Sigh.
In addition to the comp essays I have my lit survey midterm rewrites and just got a stack of essays from them too. I fear those. Plus I have a set of response papers from the comp people and will get another set at the beginning of this week as well. Plus the in-class diagnostic they had to do and tons of their in-class work I haven't even been glancing at. Poo. I feel quite overwhelmed.
In other news ---- why am I seeing "doorbuster" ads on tv? Have they moved up "Black Friday" earlier in the year? I call foul! If they do that, are they going to have the stupid super early Christmas ads too? Grumble. On the other hand, I keep seeing ads for fabulous sales ... including coats. And this means it would be a really good time to go out and try on a bunch of things. Mmmm! Too bad all that grading is in the way.
If I am very, very good, I will go out and go shopping tomorrow. Ok then. Now I will go read and prep class. (I still need to build up some more stamina before moving back into the grading again --- I did 4 papers this morning.)
