Hearth

Yeah, I knew that was coming.

After the crazy-high level of activity this week plus yesterday being a high pain day... I managed to get Elayna's back-to-school shopping done (convinced her to buy pants! only went $4 over budget), got back to the house, got her and alyveritya settled in playing Zombie Fluxx, then having lunch, then watching Fight Club, working working all the while, saw Adam and Mark off to their Red Sox game...

...utterly physically collapsed...

Napped fitfully; mostly just rested and finished the latest Temeraire book. (I plan to start calling Victoria Iskierka.) Awake now in body, but my brain isn't catching up. I keep blinking at things I should be doing but not having the focus to begin. Coffee and a shower, I think.

To backtrack, though: Great Big Sea concert was epic. bitsyboo's reading was also wonderful, as was Mark's birthday party, for all sorts of warm fuzzy reasons. And today's rest was, to be honest, clearly very necessary.

And this upcoming week, despite starting with a double, will be a good respite. I get Tuesday and Friday off entirely, and I'm not booked any other evenings until Saturday (I consider Diesel not-booked because it's a sometimes thing, not an always thing) (Mark and I need to look at this week, but still). And I get to sleep in tomorrow.

And really, none of the weeks in the near future are as packed as the one that just passed. So.
