To bed a bit early after a long day.

Well, considering that soonish, I may be working til 1am on a consistent basis.

I think I got enough sleep.

First, I woke up at 4:30 with Flar, to get him to the airport. He spent the day in Atlanta in meetings, and now he is on a plane to Brazil.

I got home with enough time to nap for 30 minutes before it would be time to get up and fix breakfast, etc. Instead, I overslept by almost an hour. I sprang out of bed in a panic, almost couldn't find my glasses, and got Critter and Tigger out the door, almost on time. Of course they both chose this morning to oversleep their own alarms. Critter had to stand in line for lunch today -- a long line, as pizza was on the cheap menu, and I managed to get Tigger to school before the 8:15 tardy time. But not by 8:00, the "normal" arrival time.

I stopped at the bank before going home, to deposit a check from Flar, cash my paycheck, and make a loan payment. Then I went home and crashed. It was after noon before I finally crawled out of bed.

By the end of my day, I've printed and mailed checks to pay bills, printed and mailed invitations to the sleep-over, as well as printing more to hand out at school, and worked 4.5 hours.

My strange sleep schedule today meant that I forgot to eat until I was at work. I had meat loaf with beer cheese spread on it (yum!), lots and lots of asparagus, and hummus-filled celery for a snack. I ate half the cashews that I brought, and didn't need the mozzarella sticks. I've eaten the last of my sugar free caramel drops, though.

Details is conservatively optimistic about her chances at the job for which she interviewed today. She doesn't expect to disappear without warning however.

My ear is not hurting as much, but is still, I guess the best word for it is stuffy. The drops appear to be bubbling out accumulated crud, so I'm continuing to take them. For at least as long as I'm on the Cipro.

I was going to hang out with Grace tomorrow, but she's spending the day with her husband. So I guess I'll have to start in on the massive cleaning effort a day early.
