Being finished with mini cheer camp and homecoming means catching up on all the other work.
While we were eating dinner (barbecue beer chicken quesadillas with gorgonzola and pineapple) I added everything together and realized I graded three hundred and ninety pieces of student work today. And now that I am typing that, I am realizing that it might sound like I haven't graded anything yet this semester. That amount was actually just last week's assignments from my four classes. No wonder I always am working.
My reward is going to bed a little early, watching a little tv and crocheting. I am working on a big, chunky, autumn-colored blanket.
