Three Weeks and One Day

April 19th, 2017 at 12:40 pm

until the blasted semester ends. I'm hanging on, not spending much, but fueled by caffeine and sugar. I seem to have legions of students who need help, are tired too, have lost the plot, or something else dire. Despite some major grocery spending last weekend, I seem to have spent nothing for days.

Tomorrow I'm driving with a friend to a teaching conference and meeting some other colleagues there. I am so excited, but so tired at the same time. I have a short presentation to do, and miracle of miracles, the university is paying for our lodging. It's over at noon on Friday, so we hope to have some time to hike Friday night. If you want an indication of how boring I currently am, I'm planning on holing up in the hotel room and grading papers all Thursday night. And worst of all--I'm looking forward to it.

DH is also busy at work and I need a couple hours tonight to pull things together around here.

    I hope your 3 wks and 1 day goes quickly! I'm with you, I'm excited for the school year to end for my boys, 6 1/2 more weeks! Enjoy your boring overnight stay! I love boring evenings/weekends. We have a baseball game on Fri and Sun, but looking forward to a boring Saturday!

    Hey, I hear you! A hotel room is a great place to get away from it all and get work done!

    As another exhausted person, I hear you! Hope you enjoy hiking and your paid for hotel room Smile.

    There's a lot to be said about sitting down and getting something accomplished and if holing up in a hotel room to get those papers graded works, then I say you've accomplished a lot! Hope your time goes by quickly enough so you don't burn out before the end of the semester.
