Slept so late. What am I going to do on Monday when the alarm goes off? And then, having already gotten a lazy start to the day, stayed in bed a while longer to read a novel.
But once I finally got up ... I got shit done!
~ finally finished grading those Merchant of Venice essays
~ finally finished reading Chapters 1-4 of Understanding by Design and writing up discussion questions
~ inspired by my reading in UBD, I came up with a brand-new assignment for Macbeth for my freshmen; I'm jazzed about it!
~ so then I went ahead and planned out the rest of the year for my freshman course; 10 weeks of classes to go, and mostly planned out. That will make my spring easier.
~ in between these activities, I did some more clearing and cleaning in the kitchen and dining room, plus a load of laundry. Seriously, if I could do just 20 minutes a day, the house would eventually get clean.
~ by 6:15 or so, I realized that my butt was hurting because I'd spent most of the day sitting. So I got off my butt and did the last of the Week 1 workouts in the Couch-to-5K program. It was maybe a teeny-tiny bit easier than on Thursday.
~ after dinner, I did a little planning for the rest of the year for my AP students; we've got 6 1/2 weeks until the AP exam.
Sadly, I need to be about this productive again tomorrow in order to feel totally on top of things for Monday, although thank goodness that's a professional development day for faculty, so the students don't actually return until Tuesday.
I'm going to set an alarm for tomorrow morning -- 7:00 a.m. should do it -- both to help with the getting shit done tomorrow and to make the morning slightly less miserable on Monday.
