Going away to the baseball coaching conference over the weekend and coming back and watching an entire season of The Wire has put me behind in my grading, and now grades are due tomorrow and I still have a lot to do. But I'm not stressed out about it. Oddly not stressed out, in fact. I'll get it done, and, if I don't, I'll get it done by the time the grade correction forms are due.
See, there are too many other things going on right now: planning new units and major assignment schedule dates, reading about Heath Ledger dying (that sucks! what a good actor!), getting baseball season ready (checked out this new batting cage up on Bel-Air Rd and Rossville Blvd today... it was great, they were much nicer than those Timonium folks.... the pre-season meeting with the guys is tomorrow), and being depressed about politics.
I think I'm going to show Dead Man Walking tomorrow to set up A Lesson Before Dying. That will give me some breathing room while also getting the kids set up for the text.
