* It occurred to me while writing an e-mail just now that this is only the fourth time in my adult life that I've been at anything vaguely resembling this level of stress.

And, hm. #1 (chronologically) wasn't as sustained, and neither #1 or #2 had any physical component, so this and #3... yup. Congrats. Those of you who deal with me on more than a casual LJ level are seeing me at one of the two most utterly upfucked times of my adult life.

Must say, I'm handling this quite a lot better than I handled #3 - but, then, I'm not as brainfogged now as I was then.

I'm actually doing better today. Onward and upward.

* There are few things that can lift one's mood like being cornered in the hallway by one's daughter's Gifted teacher to be told how smart one's daughter is. In addition to everything else, there was apparently a science test that she gave just to sort of poke at the kids... and Elayna got every question right.

"Well, she loves science!"

"Science is her gift," the teacher said.

I asked her about this test in the car. She barely remembered it - but said she's pretty sure it was one where she had to identify monocotyledons and dicotyledons.

* Monocotyledon is a fun word to say.

* Tomorrow is the last day to accept nominations for the 8 Hunks of Hanukkah! Aaand then I have to work up the energy to do stuff re: that. Yes.
