I packed & shipped our Christmas boxes yesterday, so today, I felt much less pressured, almost buoyant... which was a mistake, because I'm not done yet!
Well, I did grind through my literature review and make a round of edits before the end of the semester, and it didn't even require a complete all-nighter. The number of times I've found myself running on 2 or 3 hours of sleep is just way too high this year. Last night I got 5 hours -- perhaps that explains how good I felt today.
Anyway: I do have some grading to do, but it's not due until January. I just have this sense that things will take care of themselves, which may or may not be accurate. I have mental lists of things to accomplish but I can't seem to settle down and get them all crossed off. I think I need to make an actual physical list for them to start happening...
Christmas in 4 days (3 now, actually...)!!! Really, really looking forward to vacation.
