The Long Haul

(I have finished my correcting, and my brain is near numb. I need to rest it during the remaining twenty minutes of my prep hour by blogging, because I have to lecture straight through the next two periods. Bad to blog at work? Yes. Am I doing it anyway? You betcha. )

We have conferences at school today, so I am now in hour five of my thirteen-hour day. Yikes. Conferences are usually for six hours over two non-consecutive days. One of those days was to be last Thursday when it snowed five inches in one hour here in the ville of lakes. Needless to say, conferences were cancelled. To make up for it, we're staying an extra hour tonight. I think it's a great trade-off. Four hours instead of six? Can't argue that math. Regardless, it is a long-ass day. And a Monday. Blah. I mostly just want to be sleeping right now.

(I was going to write more, but students have invaded :-))
