Random thoughts:
  • A thousand things to do at work, a thousand things to do at home, and no time or energy to do any of them. Yes, it's the December stress attack, right on schedule. I wish I could find a way to get more sleep.
  • Why is it that the "hour" I have here at the library to get stuff done while Clara's at dance ends up only turning into twenty minutes of actual useful time? (And why am I wasting the time blogging?)

    (Warning, long, self-indulgent, emo post. Read on at your own risk.) Several years ago, as my patient family will attest, I fell into a YouTube…
