I have not been in a good mood. And you would think with it being Friday, my mood would be better, but it’s not. Because lying ahead of me this weekend is a pile of papers that need to be graded. An observation lesson that needs it’s parts completed and a house that still doesn’t really have heat and that I can’t get internet for.
I’m frustrated and angry and upset. And the only way that I know how to fix it could hurt the people that I am trying to help. So I don’t know what to do. So my plan is this. I have one and a half – a little more periods of classes left today. And a prep. I am going to get my papers finished and set up for the project my students will be starting.
I will get things printed and be ready to go for Tuesday – maybe making some copies on Sunday while I am here at school. And, I will leave school by 4 or 430. And I will go shopping. And then get some dinner. And then go home and grade. And hopefully I will come home with sweaters (or at least one or two) and a new (nice!) winter coat. And I will buckle down and start grading. And I will grade today and tomorrow. So that on Sunday, I can relax a little bit…maybe bring a book. I can get my grades in and then I can do comments.
It will not be a relaxing weekend. But hopefully, it will mean that a relaxing Thanksgiving will be here soon.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Sorry to be a downer.
