In more depressing matters: I am debating what to do with the maternity clothes that I prematurely ordered. I don't know if we're going to try again, and even if we do, I can certainly buy more clothes then if I need them. If we don't try again, it's a waste to keep them. So, I am just torn. I already wore one pair of jeans, because they were so comfy, so I have to keep them now. I also can't return the $10 dress because it was final sale. If I return the rest, I can get about $200 back on my credit card, so that would be nice. I just don't know... I think I'll stew over it for another few days.

I am really excited about the "at-home" part, but not excited at all about the "work". D has a field trip to Major City Museum today. Last year, I went along and it was really fun. I decided I better not volunteer this time, since I didn't know how I would be feeling. The one thing I HAVE to do today is grade paper drafts from my upper-level course. I think I will revise a rubric to help me with the grading, so that it's more structured. I am really not excited about this grading. I started reading one of them in the doctor's office the other day and it was god-awful. I'm sure there will be some good ones, but it wasn't a promising start. I think the approach that I will take is to try to finish them this morning, then maybe take the afternoon off if I can get them finished. I am hoping that the reward of not working this afternoon will motivate me to finish this morning- I sure hope it works.
