A little bit abed.

I've seen a lot of my own bedroom, from a more or less prone position, lately. Yes, still the sick. But I can tell I'm getting better. I know this, because I was able to grade today. My eyes felt hot, but not as hot. My head hurt, but I wasn't sneezing my head off. I haven't seen the new baby yet except in photos, but I will tomorrow. So: better.

I am feeling hopeful about the grading. I can only foresee a few little glitches. And I have made up my mind that I will not be running after them, figuratively, begging them to give me the work they forgot, or decided to bail on, or are withholding, just for the fun of seeing me freak out about it. (That last part might not be literally true, ever. But it sure feels that way sometimes.) NO. I will not. They will have to take the grade I give them if their work isn't complete, and we will discuss it in the new year.

(don't hesitate to turn up the volume, if it's too quiet.)


  1. I support your grading pledge, HT. No more running of chasing after lost (or deliberately withheld) work!

    Hope the sick will leave you alone very soon!!

    Happy Christmas!

  2. I am so sorry about this sickness that is impacting your eyes for grading. I'm sad that the hope at the end of sickness is grading but when you grade you will know you are well which is better than being sick.

  3. I hope you feel better soon!
