- I spent too much time at Fred Meyer on Sunday and didn't have any writing time left.
- We needed to watch "Duel" with our granddaughters this weekend and I stayed up too late during the time I'd set aside for blog creation.
- Mother's Day is next weekend. I gave a lot of writing time over to thinking about the best way to celebrate it. I should note that my own mother has been gone for ten years. (There's a lot of sub text in this one.)
- I forgot.
- The weekend was perfect for planting annuals so I was too tired to work at the computer.
- Colene's job application and Greg's writing project kept me too involved with other people's writing.
- The Blazers played during the day rather than in the evening and I had to watch even though they never really stood much of a chance against the Warriors. I could have sacrificed the second half and just gotten a report on the fourth quarter.
- I had a headache and I'm still recovering from my foot surgery. I needed a long nap.
for why an assignment is late. When I was in my early teaching years, I was easily swayed and would accept your paper if you promised never to do it again. In the middle years, I would accept your paper for fewer possible points. And, in the later years, NO LATE WORK WAS ACCEPTED. Period. This rule was always included in the syllabus and we could discuss it all you wanted to, but I won all the time.
P.S. I tried to check my spelling on this piece but the function wasn't working.
