How am I still working long hours?

How did finals end and I finished grading yet I'm still buried under all this work? In earnest, I'm not complaining. I rather like every task that I take on--otherwise, I wouldn't. I'm sure every academic is out there wondering the same thing. You check off a box on your to-do list (because let's face it, you have one) and yet the list gets longer. I want to imagine that at some point this won't be the case anymore.
