Sunday Morning Muse with To-Do List

I have a lot on my mind today, mainly poetry stuff. This is a day in the life of a working nurse practitioner who is also a poet and a poetry editor. Here is my to-do list.

  1. Respond to emails that accumulated during the week, while I was working my “day job”.
  2. Wash clothes, I’m totally on my last pair of underwear.
  3. Write this blog!
  4. A little yoga? Maybe.
  5. Coffee with Janie, my neighbor and good friend. We do this every Sunday morning.
  6. Send off a draft of my  new manuscript to someone who has graciously agreed to read it. Tinker with it for hours first.
  7. Prepare for an upcoming event in March, the annual AWP conference, where I will be selling books and cards for Headmistress Press and hosting an off-site poetry salon for our poets and friends. Very nervous about pulling this off!
  8. Package up HP books to send out for awards by deadlines that are so close it’s gotten scary. Eeeek, just peeked, I did miss an important deadline. Sorry!
  9. Breakdown cardboard shipping boxes that are cluttering up the office. Take the trash and the recycling out to the road for pick up tomorrow.
  10. Set up my schedule for doing hospice visits tomorrow.
  11. Listen to The Moth Radio Hour while making soup. I love soup.
  12. Read. Current read is: Sing, Unburied, Sing (Jesmyn Ward).

What I’m not going to do today is listen to the news or watch football.
