1. On Monday, I am using one of my few personal days.
  2. Am I traveling? Nope.
  3. Am I doing anything fun? Nope.
  4. Am I taking a mental health day? Nope.
  5. I'm grading. I'm so behind on grading that this is the only way I can catch up. A day without classes, meetings, crises, or anything else to distract me.
  6. So, in other words, I am taking a day off from work..... to work.
  7. And I just spent 2 hours of my Sunday night at school writing sub plans so I can take that day "off."
  8. I love teaching, but sometimes, it's ridiculous.
