It's that time of year
This is a not-very-good picture of my living room floor right now.
Those piles are homework, papers and tests waiting to be marked, graded and recorded.
There is another group waiting in another bag- about the same amount.
Every year about this time I swear that I will change the rules next year and not accept late assignments- because on top of end of the year papers and the last tests of the year and final exams (which are NOT in either pile- that's *next* weekend), there's also always so many meetings and such in May that I am always behind by the time I start on this stuff and the last weekend in May and the first weekend in June are ALWAYS a nightmare of paper for me.
AND.... every year I end up accepting the late stuff- although not for full credit, there are *some* limits, although those limits do not make my job any easier.
So, this is what I've been doing since 7 AM and will be doing until late afternoon, and probably all day tomorrow....
Tonight is my college reunion- which should be a lot of fun. There are several people whom I do not see or talk to regularly, but who are very special and I am really looking forward to talking to them. Assuming, of course, that I am still lucid after the day of school work, lol!
The weather is gorgeous and I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
