I worked for an hour, and then napped beside her from 5-9. It wasn't the deepest sleep ever, but I did manage to get some rest in there. And now Jarmila is here watching her, so I was able to put away the groceries (delivered by PeaPod, yay), water the plants, eat some breakfast, drink some tea, and even revise a little essay for the Clarion Charity anthology and send it off to the Vandermeers. It's good to be productive.
The main thing I have to work on today and tomorrow is my final book list and syllabus for my spring classes. I'm not ready to focus on that yet, though, so I think I'll churn through a bit of e-mail, and do a little organizing / laundry / etc. Hopefully by afternoon, I'll be in more of an academic mood. If not, maybe I'll take advantage of the break to do a little writing or painting. We'll see.
At 5, Kriti planning meeting here; we'll probably order pizza. Lots of new folks expressed interest, so hopefully this will be a productive meeting. I got pretty burned out last time around, though that may have been partly the pregnancy. I don't really recommend putting on a four-day festival when you're eight months pregnant!
11:01 update -- printed out and sent off "Talking to Elephants" to F&SF, finally. My first short story submission in, oh, five years? A while, anyway. Yay, me!
