Something I thought about:

  • I may have jinxed myself last week by saying I was mostly caught up and ready to switch to “proactive” mode. This week was a lot, and I was pretty exhausted by Wednesday, and then my child got sick. Things were better today than they were yesterday, and I’m holding on to that as I play catch-up once again. Next week is short: four days followed by a one-week uni break and two weeks of school vacation. Deep breaths.

Something I did:

  • Reviewed proposals for a conference.
  • Taught.
  • More National Poetry Month prep for Diverse Verse — the monthlong “Love Letters to Poetry” series launched today!
  • Took care of a sick and miserable kid — and did a lot of laundry.
