Kevin watched Kavi yesterday so I could get through some of my backlog, which did help -- I got rid of half my backlogged e-mail (still 80 messages left) and wrote another magazine proposal for Wondertime. Did most of some laundry (didn't quite manage the putting-away part) and most of a load of dishes (ditto). Was crashing pretty early, though, and Kevin was too -- I think we must both be a little sick. Slept like a log, though (no Kavi-waking! Yay!!!) and I feel okay today. Which is good because tonight Venu and Sendhil and Daniel and Anne come over for poker and pizza, woohoo!
Today I have a pretty tightly-packed day with class prep, teaching, meetings (one potentially quite awkward, sigh), teaching, grading, and errands, straight through to seven. But at seven is the poker. It's just penny-ante, because in these dark times, who can afford to play for real money? But it should be much fun nonetheless.
(Are you guys sick of the 'in these dark times' thing yet? I can't seem to stop doing it. It's like I've been infected by a dark times meme/virus. In these dark times, I can't stop talking about these dark times. Kevin even did it yesterday!! N, this is all your fault. I can't turn it off. Help!)
I really do need to make a master to-do list sometime soon, to let me even figure out if I do actually need to hire some help (somehow). If I can just find the time to do so...
