That will be my slogan for the next four or five days: Still Grading. I'm never quite sure whether I should take a day off now classes are over and just do house things and errands or push straight through the grading. I certainly hit the wall on grading on Saturday, and I wasn't alone. All my teaching pals were cooking, messaging, decorating--anything to step away from the dropboxes for a while.
I have another meeting and a final student session to round out the afternoon, but then will go back to grading.
It's been a cheap weekend here--a no-spend Saturday and Sunday though we did look at dining chairs.
I also listed few things on Facebook and have started yet another Goodwill box. Our wondrous admin person at the university is starting chemo this week, so I'll make some soup, collect some things from others, and drive out to her house this week.
My biggest "gulp" has been our property tax bill which which has risen by more than $500. Ugh. I normally auto-save each month for that bill, but borrowed some for DD's tuition. I think I'll pay it in three installments this year since there's no tax advantage to paying it all before December 31 any more.
Such a frugal December here....
