Good morning all!

Guess who's completely unmotivated to do any work? That's right, kids, it's Formerly!

Nonetheless, she's going to force herself.

Mystery project - submit
Prep for tomorrow: Class 2 Class 3 Class 4 Class 5
Exercise
Emails
Teach
Watch kittens online (oh wait...)
Other stuff I'm blocking out

Hope you all are doing well, and better motivated than I am.

See you later.

Can someone force me? I have 3 hours to prep for a TTO Meeting, and I'm still debating socks or no socks today like it's important.

I'm a rebel and went no socks. I even picked up my work and put it in a bag. Off to school I go.

Good luck.

It took me 1.5 hours to do about 20 minutes of work.

Now a student may or may not come over the next half-hour. After that, I'm going to the gym, and then heading home. Ught.

One more pass through the coding and that is done. I have a new minor chapter 3 rewrite now that analysis is done, and the next step is to outline chapter 4.

Confused and sad. Or happy. I'm not sure...

Next 20 hours:

Deliver Bioette to girl scouts
Deliver Bioson to band concert
Sit in back of concert hall grading exams while listening to music.
Come home and prep lecture for tomorrows class
Finish grading exams and tabulate results. I really need to get these back to them!
Try to sleep? I won't try to stay up, but lying in bed is not the same as sleeping.
Teach 9 AM class
Finish prep w/o my computer (getting needed repair) for 1 PM class.
Give 1 PM lecture and return exams.

Can I do it? I have my doubts...... do I want to? Nope.
Here I go....

That sounds like a rough night, Bioteacher. Do you really have to do those exams?

Lohai0, good work on the coding.

No new cross outs, sadly. Going to the gym.

Yes and no. I gave the exam the last Friday before Thanksgiving but warned students that I was not working on them during the break. I can push it back to Monday if needed, but....

Saturday is therapy session and a riding lesson
Sunday evening is family outing to LegoLand (already bought tickets).
I have to write 2 new exams to give midweek and a new lecture for Monday.
So if I don't get the exams done tonight... they have to be finished tomorrow night. 

Girl scouts was canceled... leader is sick. So now either Biodad gets home in time for me to go with Bioson alone or Bioette gets to go with me to the concert... and she really needs the crash time.

Whimper....

Oh. Well I hope you get it done tonight, then.

That's all I have the energy for. Thankfully last night's dinner was big enough for leftovers. Have a good night, all.

I am dreading being productive? Something? I need to write one page. One page. I have dragged my feet all day, but I AM going to do it now.

I need to write a page and a half for TTO, finish coding, and do some nice back stretching yoga. OTOH, a bubble bath, Dexter reruns, and finishing a quilt square sounds nicer.
