13-1/2 hours of sleep and I'm thinking of bumping up the t-shot again. it just doesn't seem to last those last couple of days. I've got grading to do I suppose although I want to take the day off. but K wants to have the grades in by Monday and since I'm in charge of the spreadsheet and most of the grading I actually have more work to do than she does. if I took today off I would have to get all the papers graded, all of the peer editing reports graded, all the homework checked off, and all of the spreadsheet formulas done in two days. I'm thinking maybe I should grade some of the peer editing reports this morning and then play this afternoon.

I'd have liked to have gotten started a little earlier but having two cats curled up next to me all morning made it very difficult to keep my eyes open long enough to get up. now that I am up I don't want to do anything. but one must do something so I suppose I should get dressed and think about what that is going to be.

day. oh.

I sat down to grade a few peer editing reports (wherein they critique each other's drafts) and I ended up doing all of them. I did about a third of them and thought oh that didn't take long let's do another third and so I did and then I thought well it would be a shame to stop now so I did what was left. now I just received two more--which were missing at first so I had to email the student--and I am fighting the urge to grade them just to be complete.

although I suppose if I have actual urges to grade I should perhaps give in. but it is close to bedtime and I should do something enjoyable. sometimes I wish I had a little tv hanging from the ceiling at the foot of my bed. other times I wish I had a little chest of drawers up there so I could store more necessities there where I need them. also I've thought of building a shelf so I could take my laptop up and then put it someplace relatively safe for the night. I spend fully half my life up there so I need a slightly more elaborate bedstead than the rest of you.

the construction never ends. this room is so big it will take 25 years to turn it into a Schwitters house.
