What’s at the end of the tunnel, anyway?

I will imagine that instead of staying up late yet again to finish tomorrow's lecture and finish a writing project I need to submit this evening, I am instead sleeping peacefully or walking through the woods.
I will now imagine that rather than staying up late yet again to finish tomorrow’s lecture and a writing project due at midnight, I am instead looking at the light at the end of the tunnel. Or sleeping peacefully.

Someone mentioned to me today, “soon we’ll need to be gearing up for the holidays.”

And I thought, when did we gear down?

Life is flying at such a frantic pace this fall that I honestly don’t believe I can squeeze anything more out of the days. The idea that soon we’ll be juggling what we have plus a boatload more is not particularly appealing.

Must be time to go play with the kittens.

  1. Definitely time to play with the kittens! (Honestly, when isn’t?!) A friend has a postcard telling her to sit down for half an hour with a book and a cup of tea. Underneath, it say: “if you don’t have half an hour to spare, sit for a whole hour”. I love it 😉
