I've hit that point again. That completely overwhelmed, disorganized, out-of-time-and-way-behind point.
And it's two days after spring break.
That doesn't bode well for the next two months.
I think (and hope), honestly, that it's because of my trip. I did absolutely no grading the weekend before I left (or the ten days I was gone, honestly), and I usually spend maybe two or three hours per weekend grading or looking for materials to use in class, so I'm six to nine hours behind there. Plus I had to cram a bunch of papers into a drawer because I was out of time to file (that whole plane to catch thing) and didn't want my classroom to look like a disaster for my sub, so I can't find some of the stuff I need.
Guess I know what this weekend's going to be like. Ah well....I'll drink my fancy looseleaf green tea, suck on Chinese candies, and listen to a Chinese indie rock CD while I work, and I'll remember that it was all worth it.
