Too much work, too much coffee...

I think I will start dancing around my house if I drink another cup of coffee so I better stop. Worked late last night, made myself stop when a glance at my clock revealed it was after 2:00 a.m., slept in just a little (8:00), treated myself to fresh waffles, and returned to a pile of work again. So much to do, so little time:
  • Finish conference paper (worked on it on and off for the past several weeks, too many interruptions, I really want to finish it by tomorrow so I can meet the deadline)
  • Finish course preps for the next week
  • Jot down notes for the curriculum alignment meeting on Tuesday afternoon (reviewing high school curriculum and preparing college credit agreements is a pain, no doubt)
  • Pull out my advisee folders (Spring registration starts tomorrow so I better be ready for a steady stream of students, frantic phone calls, begging for seats in closed sections -- oh, joy)
  • Start on my stats homework (at least jot down notes so I can start thinking about it)
  • Read notes for the final project in one of my courses (team members want to finish early so I guess I better cooperate; it's one of the reasons I hate group work -- you have to coordinate schedules and it's tough; nevertheless, as a teacher, I know that collaborative work is important)
  • I am sure there is something else I can't think of right now but will pop up on a screen when I open Outlook tomorrow.
  • Oh, duh -- pack for a trip later this week; taking three students to a leadership conference, Friday-Sunday. It looks good on my annual evaluation but so boring and time-consuming.

Do you have to hang with the students at the conference? Or can you bring your laptop and get a bit of your own work done?

I will be free from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday so, yes, I plan to find a quiet corner and work. Last year, they provided Internet access so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
