From 4:30 to 6:30 this morning, I graded papers. It was on my to-do list for yesterday, but I had meetings, and the gym, and then quantities of work, and of course it was Amazon Vine day so that took up some time as well. Then there was rehearsal last night, and since I didn’t drive myself, I was there quite late and got home just after 10:00.

Rehearsal was more fun than grading papers.

Today I have class, and then a meeting, and then I’m doing a storyboard for a video, which is a new experience for me, and finishing up a few websites. Then I have another rehearsal, and then my daughters will be arriving for the weekend, so I hope I will get some housework done in there somewhere. And groceries. And the encyclopedia deadline is tomorrow, and I had a “hurry up” message from the Amazon Breakout Novel Award people, so I plan some further progress on that today as well. Also a visit to the gym, but I have to be realistic.

The next Life@Work question is, “What areas of your life should you start saying ‘no to?” Apart from bell choir, where I am stuck until I can find someone else to play the bells for which I am responsible, I can’t think of anything I want to say no to.

Oh, well, sure, I’d like to say no to housework and doing my taxes and stuff like that, but I wouldn’t enjoy the consequences. I have a meeting today with The Computer Guy, who will be giving me the last 1099 I needed to collect, so I can at least go ahead then and do my taxes and get it over with.
