Just before dawn

I’d meant to get up a couple of hours early and finish up the last of these papers so that I could record my quarter grades today, but I woke up about three hours earlier than that, and after lying awake for almost an hour, I decided I might as well get up.  I’m embarrassed to say that I still didn’t grade as many as I really should have, considering how long I’ve been awake and how much coffee I’ve had.  Let me get through today without losing my patience or my temper, please–three hours of sleep is not enough.

  1. Oh dear. Good luck with that goal! There was a day last week when my only real goal was to get through the school day without snapping at anyone; I made it, but it took every ounce of energy that I had.
