Confession time: I am feeling rather s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d these days. In addition to my day job responsibilities and other ongoing commitments, I have a number of deadlines of various sorts clustered around April 15 and May 1. And since I never leave anything to the very last minute, I’m already feeling “behind.”
To save my sanity, I’ve already removed a couple of items (fellowship/residency applications) from my to-do list. (They were “optional,” in that no one was waiting for me to get them done.)
And fortunately, I’ve also managed to meet some of my upcoming deadlines/obligations. So I have crossed off those items from the list, too.
And, in breaking news: I’ve been saying “no” to other requests a lot more often lately. That’s starting to get a little bit easier.

I know that it will all get done. Somehow. Bit by bit.
