On the weekends I often write out these long to-do lists, but today I want to focus on three things I can realistically do to make today a productive day.
So, for today:
Visit my mom’s grave. The cemetery is only a couple miles away, yet I haven’t been there for quite a while. Today is her birthday.
Grade my students’ lab practical. They took it a week and a half ago, and I still haven’t graded it and given it back to them. I hate grading papers at home, hate taking work home with me, but sometimes that’s what I need to do.
Make something big for dinner. Usually on the weekends I make something big, something that will give me leftovers for a few days of lunches. I’m leaning toward making chili mac, but I haven’t made up my mind. I make it fairly often, but it’s good, it’s easy, and it provides leftovers for days.
If I could add a fourth thing it would be to write the lab exam I’m giving to my other students tomorrow, but I’m not going to stress getting it done today. The exam is mostly put together, so really I could just put the finishing touches on it tomorrow just before I print it and run off copies.
