Nose to the Grindstone

Sixty-one down, five to go. In about an hour I'll be finished with round one of essay-grading, which has taken me about, yikes, ten hours.  (?)

Tomorrow and Wednesday I teach at RCC, and on Friday I teach my new course, "Spook-tober Science," 8-4 at ScienceWorks. I'll have about twenty students. (I'll do another, lighter, post later on how much fun we'll have.)

I'm slightly overwhelmed by the workload I've added to housecleaning, yardwork, and childrearing, but I'm teachng 9 credits this quarter so our family can take an amazing trip this Christmas.

After the trip, I'll just teach 3-6 credits every quarter and hold things together a little more smoothly at home.

I'm going to add a separate post after this (see above) to share a little joy.

You're a real trooer, Anjie. Keep on, keepint on.

Would love to have read all the students' writings but more importantly your input.

They'll have improved their writing skills under your tutelage - a long term goal for you. Right?
