Now that we are attired for dinner, I wonder if we might like some hors d'oeuvres? What delectable delights might tempt us?
Or translating that to work, how can we break down tasks into smaller pieces that we can bite off? In what ways can you make this week more palatable?
1) Write 2 sections of original text for new local paper
2) Do modelling work for new local paper
3) Ongoing grad student feedback
4) Read a selected pile of literature on new-to-me technique
5) Fun patio visit with friends
6) Attend all the appointments I so dutifully set up
7) Field trip on weekend! Yay!
