Jason: How about I take the girls out tomorrow night...
Me: ... (this sounds good) ...
Jason: ...so you can have some time on your own...
Me: ...(loving it!) ...
Jason: ...to write up answers for our comprehensive graduate exams next month?
And so here I sit, typing up phrases like "Qualitative research is well suited to the field of education more than quantitative research because..." and after that I'm sure you don't care. I don't really care either, but that doesn't seem to keep me from writing about it.
On the upside (because there has to be an upside!), I get to peruse through some of my old papers--always an interesting task and occasionally a boost to the ego, especially those papers I wrote before I was a parent when I had hours upon hours of free time to craft my papers into small masterpieces. I am deliberately steering away from the papers I wrote when I was pregnant. They're not pretty. They're not even cohesive.
Funny thing is, during those before-children days, an evening spent writing a paper would have been a "work night," as opposed to tonight, when my evening spent writing essays is a "free night."
Yep. Those were the days.
All right. Back to evaluating the major components of a classroom management theory.
