It's been a long summer. Too much has happened for me to recap everything right now.

I'm wondering what to do with my little blog here. I have a lot to say, still, and I like this space, but I think I need to rethink what I need to use it for and how I think about myself.

There are four things on which I'm focused in various ways and with varying intensities:

1. My baby
2. My book
3. tenure and promotion
4. health-fitness-strength

So I'm stuck. I'd say 90% of my energy is on the Magpie. My god. That kid. I just want to spend all of my time next to her, around her, cuddling her, halting her from growing up. She goes to day care for the first time ever tomorrow, and I'm not dealing well with it at all! But now, after a year on the waiting list, she finally got in. There are many, many positives about this, but I don't deal well with change (as you guys know), and I just don't want her to go.

I have a book proposal due. What am I thinking??!!

I need another article for tenure. How am I going to do this??!!

Can I stay healthy enough for long enough to make some gains at the box??!!

This is where I'm at. I have lots of thinkings to do.
