Getting there

36 scripts to go.

Concentrating fiercely*, I might be able to do them in about 5 hours. I'm going to try to mark 9 more tonight. On Thursday, normal life should resume. Thank you for your kind comments. I have actually been sneaking peeks at your blogs at work and shall be back commenting myself once I've dealt with the remainder of the exams.

A lot of the students can't spell "opportunity", a word which quite a few of them use to answer one question. I've seen it written wrongly so much in the last week and a half that I'm beginning to doubt my own spelling of it.

* You might gather from my doodles that the concentration occasionally wanders.


  1. I would be one student that got it wrong I am a terrible.speller.thank god for the dictionary,he he he .
    Hugs Mary.

  2. Most excellent doodles. Glad to see you taking advantage of your day dreaming opporrtunnities!

  3. Light at end of tunnel. Nearing the finishing line. Keep up the good work. Opportunity knocks. May the best man win. A woman's work is never done. Go tell it on the mountain. A stitch in time saves nine. Many hands make light work. As easy as ABC.
    You've obviously been getting a wriggle on.
    I am impressed.

    oppertunity? operatunity? opurtunity? oppportunnity?

    How are you coping?

  5. If you sneak a peak at Cake Wrecks, you will start questioning how to spell "congratulations" too.

  6. I've always preferred the Francie and Josie version: opporchancity

  7. How do you keep your sanity when doing so much grading?

    I admire that dining room chair of yours. It has a Craftsman air about it, but is of blonde wood. Very tasteful.
