It's the last day of my Thanksgiving Break. Daddy is here, it's raining outside, and there's football on television.
And I have three periods of writing prompts which I should be grading.
But I don't really feel motivated to do so.
As much as I like to read, and write, I could never have been a language arts teacher. They have my utmost respect for slogging through essay after essay after essay. It's bad enough that we have to assign, and grade for content, one writing assignment every nine weeks. I could not have done it on a regular basis.
So I have these writing prompts dealing with pollination, some of which are quite good and some of which - let's be honest - are awful.
Putting a needle in your eye awful.
And I really need to get them graded. But honestly, I'd rather hang with Dad, knit and watch football.
What's a girl to do?
