I can't express how much I enjoyed this Thanksgiving break. It was a much needed rest from everything. I feel like my head is back screwed on straight. The only problematic thing is this nasty stack of papers to grade. However, there is something positive to be said for having 70+ essays to grade
a) my house hasn't been this clean in... since we moved in?
b) almost all Christmas shopping is done
c) I have two holiday parties planned
d) all Christmas decorations are up and looking good
But, now, I have to get them graded today so students have the opportunity to rewrite before semester.
And, speaking of semester, there are only three shortened weeks left of the semester!
