Except that I'm sitting on my usual spot on the couch, grading papers. Research papers. Creative writing. Essays. The usual.
Christmas break is so close I can almost taste it. I love the delicious unwinding that occurs in the spirit, when the last grading is done, and there's no more work for weeks. And this year, I'll be done at noon on Dec. 19, and not be back in the classroom until the morning of Jan. 20. Can you believe it! I just LOVE our Winterim program (like a January term), and so do the students. This is one program that I hope we keep.
Well, we all know that I'm still sitting here, typing, because I don't want to pick up that last research paper and look at it. Or read the Hemingway short story that I've read about 10 times before, but need to read afresh each year.
My poor little students. I'm really trying to cram one last mouthful down their throats before the exams.
