On the other side of tomorrow this paper will be done. Right now? It’s kicking my ass hard. So, I’ve walked the dog the long way around on this beautiful day. I’ve made extra coffee because I know it’s going to be a late night. I’ve spent a little time contemplating the knitting I’ll get back to as soon as this paper is done and what decadent television I might watch whilst knitting. I’ve thought longingly of my day off from tutoring (Friday — 1st grade field trip to a farm for pumpkins and I’m not going!) and the yoga class I can take myself to for a well-deserved savasana. I’ve piled the fat books I’ve trudged through and need to cite here and there in tall stacks on the kitchen table. And last but certainly not least, I’ve begun to plunder the Halloween chocolate stash. May be more tricks than treats come Sunday night! However, on Sunday there will also be space to breathe and time to rest, and I will be grateful.
That is, of course, if I survive today and tomorrow.
