Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. (backdated due to ridiculously early bedtime of 5 pm)
Had a good day at work. Got a bit on the hypomanic side of normal while leading students through an exercise on how to make a good impression and how to make a bad impression. (My inner thespian became something of an outer thespian.)
Then went to pick up all the children.
Arrived home and they were all SO ENERGETIC and whiny and wrestly and screamy and intense that I went into my bedroom, fell face down on the bed and hid my head under my pillow.
Very helpful. And mature. And all that. After a few minutes, daughter came in, snuggled up with me and we fell asleep.
I woke up at midnight. Got up, took evening medicine, read a little bit, had dinner and went back to sleep.
Grateful Crap: children who were awake made dinner for themselves
