My schedule this week

I have to have 36 quizzes and 36 8-10 page research papers graded and a final exam written and photocopied by Friday. I wrote most of the exam last week and only needed to finish up one little bit this week. The quizzes would take about 20 minutes for all of them whereas the papers take at least 20 minutes each. Yesterday morning I came up with a plan. The plan was to finish the exam, grade the quizzes, and grade six papers yesterday and then grade ten papers each on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I forgot one tiny detail when creating this plan: I am the Queen Empress of Procrastination and suck at sticking to plans like that.

Yesterday out of everything I needed to do I… uh… reorganized my closet! I pulled out the stack of clothes I've been meaning to take to GoodWill or some such, put them in a bag, and moved them over to the door and I moved all my sweaters and sweatshirts to the back of the closest and my summer and more professional teaching stuff to the front. I also went shopping for groceries (and managed to pick up a couple of very cute tops I can use for casual wear and for teaching) and did finish writing the exam, but that took about an hour and I didn't start until 10:00 pm so that doesn't really count as productive use of my day.

Revised plan: grade quizzes and 12 papers today and then 12 papers each on Wednesday and Thursday. It is now 2:00 and thus far today I've graded the quizzes and one paper. Not very good, but infinitely better than yesterday. Does that mean I've earned a break for the next, oh, 24 hours or so?

EDIT: 8 down 4 to go for today.
Feeling: Cold
Exploring: Barnes & Noble (where the AC is set on freeze)
Listening: Patrick Doyle - Golden Egg

I'm getting there. I'm not going to make all 12 today, but I'm making progress.
