    I feel that I need my to-do list LESS during quarantine! I feel this huge pull just to relax and "be"--kind of the way I feel when I'm on a long flight--where's nothing much I can do, so I may as well intentionally let go of those nagging mental gnats of "have-to-do's" and "should-do's" and just do "want-to-do's". My heart rate has already done down.

    I realize that many still can't do this--people having to adjust to working from home online, healthcare workers, all the industries keeping us afloat, but until I get another client call for a new job, I'm, in effect, on furlough. What's more, I HAVE to stay home. DH is the kind of guy who can't sit still, hates being home all day, and usually insists on "doing something."

    For once, we have to just settle in and be happy with it, which I am.

    That being said, what an opportunity for garden planning, fixing up the house (cleaning, painting), reading, etc. For as long as I can, I'm going to try to go back to living as I did during my summers with my aunt, taking a good enough amount of time to prepare and eat; spending time outside; working on hobbies and interests such as drawing, sewing, reading; and going with the flow of the day.

    I will report back on this challenge to mark alignment with progress with those goals, but I'm not going to write a daily list or check off anything as done. My do-to list can shelter in place for a while!

    I love reading what everyone else is doing here!

    Wow, EJ and Danna have sure been productive! I don't have much planned for today, just a cozy day at home with DH. I have some small stuff to do like pay few bills, wash lettuce, make a couple of salads and grind some coffee. Nothing epic on the agenda. Have a lovely Sunday everyone!

    2. meditate, pray, and do spiritual reading

    4. Grade one set of journal entries for afternoon 102

    6. Make up discussion questions for tomorrow's class on Heavy

    7. Make up discussion questions (maybe just five) on Sorry to Bother You focusing on power and peril

    8. Learn how to set up breakout groups in discussion board in Canvas

    9. Post quotation integration information on Canvas

    10. Take a walk with my daughter

    11. Play a game of Scrabble with my daughter (shouldn't have to put this on a to-do list, but it's a reminder to myself to just stop and take family time today, and this is what she wants to do)

    12. Email 101 students who haven't been checking in on Canvas through People Soft

    13. Lead discussion group on Sorry to Bother You

    Ugh - I despise doing taxes. Im fully able to do them, but there is a mental/emotional block about the bureaucracy of it all. So yesterday I shared my Dropbox files with our accountant son and he did them for me. Were paying him. They were e-filed and accepted within a few hours. He loved the distraction and I love not dealing with it.

    Mine take less than an hour, but filling out the forms is one of those "impossible tasks" it's so easy to put off.

    I also hate doing our taxes and almost always end up waiting until the last minute to get them done. But, I did them yesterday and am relieved to see it's almost a wash, owing the state $50 more than my federal return.
