In which I’ve been completely lazy. I had lots of “I shoulds” going through my head, but the thing is, moments of pure relaxation are rare. For the next three or four weekends, I have obligations: conferences, competitions, travels. My time will be well spent, but it will be spent doing stuff, and I’ll be squeezing in the obligations like bill paying, grading, cleaning between my other activities. We work in bursts, my family. We’ll go for a few weeks at full tilt, and then well be completely down for a few days. I know some people who can go at nearly full speed constantly. I’ve tried that. I usually burn out.
I’ve done most of my shoulds for the weekend. I have one or two more to do, but for now I’m going to have another cup of coffee and some yogurt. There’s always plenty of time for work.
