I came home from work today, cleaned up the house a bit, ate dinner with Maddie, cleaned my desk and looked at the looming pile of papers waiting, just waiting, to be graded. It was only 5 p.m. so I just picked up 3 from the pile and started to read.
I finished. Looked at the rest Decided to call it a night.
The papers will get graded soon, but not tonight.
Instead I took a bath and started reading book two of Harry Potter.
I’m thankful for my decision. This is turning out to be one of the most relaxing nights I’ve had in a long time.
