Too many deadlines all at once

Too many deadlines. Aaaarrrgh! I'm feeling stressed. :(

I have, however, written my handout for this evening's class so I just need to throw together a lesson plan before having a shower and toddling over to the college to do my teaching stint for the day.

I am finally beginning to grasp CSS. But why did I say I'd to the presentation on Thursday? Oh, well, it will get it out of the way, but if I don't make serious inroads into the (virtual) heap of assignments, I will go bonkers because I feel like I've been marking them forever.

Oh, and how did a .docx file sneak through? I thought I was checking them as I downloaded them from the system. It's a bit too late to demand that she re-submits in the correct format, so I'll do the conversion and give her a little lecture in the feedback about reading the guidelines properly.
