One of the frustrating things in life is that I never get to the end of my "to-do" list. If I take a do-nothing day, there is inevitably some guilt about leaving things undone. Right now, I am facing the normal amount of things anyone has to do, plus unpacking. Even when I take few minutes off from work (or many minutes) there is still no way to get everything done. I think if I had a full two weeks off, and a lot of encouragement from someone with great unpacking ideas, I might get close to the end of the unpacking. But Jimmy is for sure not that person and I'm not ready to take two weeks off and hang around the house. But why not? Why not. I have that urge to go--bike, travel, Ikea (haha!), movies, shopping (food!). Or I want to just sit and knit and watch tv/movies (maybe even read). Reading does feel like a big accomplishment these days. I'm doing a lot of light reading and slowly working my way through "The Color of Law," which you must read. Even though it covers a lot of stuff where I have expertise, much of it is new and the framing is excellent. It's also incredibly depressing but also well-written and pretty easy to read. That's all I have for today. Keeping it short and sweet!
Grateful for: time to sit and write.
