My son and I are leaving our small town in southeastern United States to live for a year in a small town in southeastern France. It couldn't possibly be THAT different, right?

Blissful grading

If you absolutely must grade papers all day, be sure to do it in a park in the spring while your child runs and laughs and plays with his best friend.

There will be distractions like requests for drinks and snacks and adorable babies chasing balls and way-too-young-to-be-smoking teenagers using foul language and an older couple sitting crossed-legged and gazing into each other's eyes for an hour ( I don't know how they did that!  I was bored FOR them!), but that's ok.

It's better than being cooped up in a fourth-floor apartment on a gorgeous day.
