Grading Paper Blues

I'm taking tomorrow off for two reasons. One, I am getting a new dishwasher and want to be here while it's being installed. 
Two, I have a bunch of To Kill a Mockingbird essays to grade. About 90 to be exact.
 I already graded about 30 of them. 
Did I mention I dread this? Well I do. The temperature tomorrow is supposed to be in the 80's. I wish I could sit outside and grade. That doesn't work for me. I have to be in the zone. I  have t0 hunker down somewhere and really concentrate. Get a system going.  At least when I grade such serious essays. I guess this is the price I pay for having June and July off. I have to say though... it's worth it.
