Unfortunately, my blog is several items down on my priority list:
1. Getting my kids to/from school (with clothes on, showered, fed, etc.)
2. Grading papers
3. Preparing for class (writing out assignments, rereading, writing quizzes/tests, online discussion)
4. Eating regularly
6. Cleaning the house to the non-pit level
Lately, #2 and #3 have taken most of my time. In fact, I've jumped you up momentarily, but in just a few moments I need to finish grading--four more papers to go before classes this morning--so even this entry has to be short. It typically try to return papers the very next day, but always within the week, even if I have several batches of them.
Even worse, writing on this blog is not my first writing priority. I have a staged reading coming up a week from Sunday, and my full-length play needs a few rewrites, which I'm sure the director wants yesterday. I hope to get to these tonight, since this will be the first day in quite some time I do not have 3+ hours of grading to do.
Sorry if I sound like I'm complaining, readers. In reality, I only write this now to explain why--and to let you know (in case you were wondering) that I had not died.
I have not died.
I will be back in full force, I promise, when classes end in June. Until then, I will post as much as I am able, and I will check your blogs with every spare moment I have.
Too bad I don't have more spare moments.
