My to-do list is so long that I’m not sure where to start.

Presently, I have a homework assignment begging to be started, approximately 100 pages to read out of my textbook, a screenplay to finish, a novel to start [hello, NaNoWriMo!], and that’s not even counting my personal commitments away from my laptop. Dishes, laundry, dog-walking, husband-snuggling – I could go on for hours here listing the obligations I’m currently neglecting.

I’m exhausted just thinking about it.

The question is: what is my priority? Right now, a glass of wine, a bubble bath, and a book seem to be calling my name. My warm bed has also turned into a Siren and is seducing me with it’s warm lullabies and promise of replenishing sleep.

Oh, the temptation! Can I resist?

No. No, I cannot.

Tomorrow is November 1st. I’ll start fresh with my to-do list tomorrow, I promise.

In the meantime…
