Right now, after 10 months of an on-site copywriting job combined with two semesters of teaching writing classes, I’m back to sitting on the sofa with my laptop perched on my lap.
Right now, I have a huge stack of final essays to grade, blog posts that I’m woefully behind on, an editing project ready to go, and a big, hairy research project to tackle.
Right now, it’s 75 degrees out, and right now, the boys are doing this:
Right now, I’m ignoring the dishes piled in the sink, the tumbleweeds of dog fur blowing across the floor, and the mountain of work stacked in manila folders on the corner of my desk so that I can alternate between chipping away at my to-do list and snuggling the boys.
To me, that’s the perfect way to adjust to a whole new schedule.
What are you – and your dogs – doing right now?
