I have focused on my teaching (both for my own classes and when asked to sub for others) and I think the classes are coherent, useful, and well-structured.
I am getting the grading done quickly and turning it around usually by the next class period. –This only works because I only have one class for each course. If I had 50+ students in one course I might need more time, even for a short assignment.
I am reading in the discipline, though not as much as I had hoped.
I am working steadily on a creative project.
This semester I am attempting to not work from home. I do my school-related work at school as much as possible and am able to work on my research, writing, and reading at home.
I still answer texts and emails at home and sometimes those can take an hour or more.
I’ve done all those things I was putting off because I should have already done them already. Now they aren’t hovering over me like the sword of Damocles ready to drop.
