Vacation, all I ever wanted...

It's Thanksgiving vacation week here at casa casual dread, and all I can think is, "Thank Jeebus." I have been running myself ragged over the past few weeks, trying to get planning, grading, and holiday stuff done. I've already broken down my days:

Today I will be catching up on reviewing and blogging, so look for last week's Weekly Geeks post and at least four other book reviews later.

Tomorrow is grading day - I have mounds of papers piling up, and I want to get them done! I'll be dog sitting, so that seems like a good time to do it.

Wednesday and Thursday, I'll be at my sister's for Thanksgiving. This is her first year doing hostessing duties, but we're all pitching in to help with the food. I get to make a carrot souffle and wear my kick-ass "To Serve Man" apron that she made me for Christmas a few years ago.

Friday is shopping and a movie. I'm voting for Madagascar 2 or Quantum of Solace. One of my cousins has created an animated commercial that will run before those two movies in the Atlanta area. So, yes, I will be going to the movie for the previews. :)

In between, I've got books to read and Secret Santa presents to ship, not to mention gifts to make. Here's to a productive week...
