Too much is never enough...

The right side of my neck hurts so. bad. I've got grading that I really need to get done and I just hurt... oh, I hurt. And I don't want to do any of the things that ought to be done. There's not THAT much grading... I'm just not doing it. Ditto laundry and dishes. And it's not even like I've got some wonderful alternative. ;p

I wouldn't mind procrastinating if I was enjoying it. But the afternoon will be over and I'll have nothing to show for it except...

Well, I won't have ANYTHING to show for it! Drat!

I think... I think what I am going to do is go take another soaky bath (I had one this morning, in an attempt to help my neck feel better. Didn't work, alas.) but set a timer. While the timer is ticking, I will allow myself as much luxury as I like. Bubble bath! Hot cocoa! And I will go over my Great Expectations powerpoint and maybe do a bit of creative writing (we went to a LOTR trilogy marathon at the movie theater yesterday and, yanno, I've always thought that humans get shafted in high fantasy). And I will think about Carlotta (who's overdue for a story!) and Adam and Samuel (who I may never see again, alas).

And when the timer goes off, I will get out, dry off, and get dressed in school clothes. I will start another load of laundry, load the dishwasher, and do my grading.

I can do it!

Try an ice pack---it will keep the swelling down (heat will make it worse). :)
