Some Days

Some days you have to really buckle down and prioritize all of the things you need to do. If you have a big, long, mean list of things, you might have to make some tough choices. Maybe you need to grade papers, plan lessons, make a summer syllabus, read for a graduate class, start your paper for that same class, study for your PhD exams, replace your rear blinker, put in a load of dishes, work on your new blog project, clean the house, and plan dinner.

Some days all of those things will pile up and stare at you, and you will have to make the decision about what is most important and what can wait, what has to be done to perfection and what can be compromised.

Some days are hard.

Some days, though, are days when you should take your dog for a long walk.

It can be hard to tell what days are what, but today I made the right choice.

Some of us enjoyed rolling around in the dirt. Others of us did not.
