Still recuperating, but…

Still recuperating, but better. Working at home today, and still a lot of catch-up to do. So far today I've fed myself (leftover vinegary tamarind spicy pork curry, yum). Plans (and no, this almost certainly won't all get done today, but if I list it now, I can spill it over to Friday, when I'll be home in the morning).

  • empty and refill dishwasher and run it and empty it again (we were both too tired last night, and now I have a sink full of dirty dishes which is not the way I like to wake up, sigh) -- DONE
  • feed children and get them to school -- DONE
  • send FogCon check to Sonya (the SLF serves as fiscal sponsor for FogCon, so donations to them are tax-deductible) -- DONE
  • clear out trash on front porch (gardening stuff) and organize for winter -- DONE
  • finish ASAM work -- DONE
  • grade various small exercises and prep for tomorrow's classes (send out Ted Chiang materials!) -- DONE

Okay, now I'm feeling overwhelmed. I could ditch it all and lie in bed re-reading Tamora Pierce novels instead.

I don't know how people with 9-5 jobs + commuting cope with the rest of their lives, I really don't. All sympathies to you!

6:30 update: I have a sudden urge to commission an illustrator to do a sketch of an eight-armed version of me -- calendar in one hand, list in another, a child clutched to my side, a book in a fourth hand, a gardening trowel, a laptop and cup of tea precariously perched -- that's only seven hands, but perhaps the eighth will simply wipe the sweat from my brow, and above my head, a banner unfurls with an Allie Brosh-like battle-cry, "Do ALL the things!!!"

9:30 update: I was having trouble motivating to get anything done. So I changed out of my sweats into jeans and a dark grey hooded sweater that makes me feel like a winter elf, ready to do battle with a mountain of chores. Oddly, it helps. I will be swift and mighty, like the night. I know that makes no sense. And yet, it works.

A pair of high heels often sinks on softer areas mainly because the little tip of stilettos in many cases can permeate into the bottom.

Heel protectors are able to keep your heels from sinking on grass by increasing the surface area of your heels, giving them more community to distribute your weight.
