18-week Semester: Part the Second

Last week was nuts. I had all kinds of committee reports to write. And then I had to finish up an accelerated class. And then I had to prep for the new class that starts tomorrow. Also? I had to attend a conference on assessment from W-F. Doesn't that sound like fun?

And this all came after several nights (at the beginning of last week) of staying up past 1:00am grading. In fact, I'm wondering if all of that late-night grading is what led to the burst blood vessels in my eye, which made me look kind of scary during the conference. In fact, I still look scary. Or totally stoned. In one eye.

But, with the help of Hubby, I have gotten most of my work done (unless I've totally forgotten about something), the house is in relative good order, the laundry is (mostly) done, and we have food.

I think I'm ready for the next nine weeks.

Oh, and maybe this week I can work on the dissertation!

I soooo feel your pain. I have 7 weeks left. I'm ready to throw the papers down the stairs. Just shoot me with the papers for credit already.

Give them the scary eyeball. Whatever it takes!

The eye sounds uncomfortable! Yay for food and laundry, though. How's the Boy doing?

I made apple scones with brown rice flour last week (gluten free). They're my answer to grading/taking way too many SAT tests right now.

Stopped by again to say happy birthday -- hope you get a reprieve from the late-night grading today!
