TUESDAY: 8:30--Arrive at work to work on grading. 9-2:30--10 30-minute student appointments on papers. Two no-shows, which gives me more time to work on grading, which I needed. Papers are on topics including gender roles in Disney movies, gender roles in reality tv programs, whether prisoners should work in prison (x2), sex ed in schools (x2). One person is struggling with the research part of writing a research paper and I spend extra time trying to help her, the upshot of which is that I only get 7 minutes for lunch. Sigh. (And this is part of why I don't want to rush around on Saturday as well.) 3--Pick up Child. Read with Child and early dinner. Measure Child. This year, instead of the dance school measuring each kid, they are having parents do it. Does anyone else think this is a stupid idea? Just me? Okay. 5-8:30--Child has dance. I write in diary and watch some. Home. Put Child to bed.
