March 28 Day 20: Struggling to Focus

I am really struggling to focus on needed work. It’s the last Saturday of “Spring break” and  I am trying to get enough posted to my course management  system to publish the second course that I am teaching beginning Monday. Instead I want to talk with friends on the phone, zoom, nap, or watch “Tiger King.” It should not be this hard. (Mind you I have been working harder than usual for the last 20 days. Spring-break? I think not.)

On the plus side, one of my sons is currently practicing his music, making the ambient sounds in the house delightful. I’ll keep trying. I have one more day.
