Oy, I remember that feeling sooo well. At this point it felt for me as though the grading and test creation tasks I needed to do were too big to possibly get finished before the end of the year. Last year (when I was in full procrastination mode because I wasn't coming back...Lucy was on the way) I was grading essays at my desk while students were taking their finals! Let me just say it's not the most productive thing because I had to look up every minute to deter cheaters. Anyhow, I hope it all goes quickly and easily for you, considering. :)

AMEN! 30 school days left with kids... +2 with NONE! 2 more rotations of three weeks each = 2 more units of study. At least 1000 more hugs (watch out for the lice), 75+ requests to tie shoes and at least 2 more teeth lost in my class!

One more research paper graded and six classes done. I'm now down to 14 research papers and 174 classes left to teach.
