    Default Sorry for an URGENT reply! Please assist, Thanks! T_T

    One of my kids at school wrote:

    My homework and housework have been so heavy that I have often had to work till midnight. ( Really confused with it! )

    Thus, I have corrected it to:

    I have so much homework and housework to do that, a lot of times, I have to work till midnight. ( Could anyone out there check if this would be a better way of expressing the idea from the above sentence? Please correct if there's any mistakes too, Thank you! ) T_T

    You are right that the original sentence is awkward at best.

    Try:

    • My workload has been so heavy that I have often had to work till midnight.


    The second sentence could use a little tweaking. Try:

    • I have so much homework and housework to do that I often have to work till midnight.


    What do you think?

    :)
