Hours I will spend in my office: between three and twenty-five?
Syllabi that will be completed: two. I hope.
Books that I will finish reading: two.
Reviews of books that I will commence writing: two. (I hope.)
Number of meals I will cook and/or otherwise prepare at home: five breakfasts, three lunches, four dinners.

Christmas trees that will come down down down: one.
Remaining holiday food that will be either eaten or discarded, such as naked sugar cookies and stale baked goods: all of it, ALL! come hell or high water.
Poems to be written: I am planning on three.
Number of birthdays this week in my family: one!
