I know, right? We have so much to manage and juggle already, and when the shortest path to your goal is a simple flamethrower...I mean, it makes perfect sense!

COFFEE☕️ and a flame-thrower. If one can't fix it, the other will!

I went to an academic meeting tonight at the Christian high school DS will be attending in the fall. It was interesting. Now I know all he needs to do to graduate. I really hope this child does some serious growing up this summer or this is going to be a looooooong 4 years,

I've been awake since three and up since four. I thought about taking some more medicine, but that would have made me sleep until noon. So I got up and edited instead. Maybe I'll take a nap later this morning.

I'm working on it. Finished polishing one chapter and I'm set to polish another this morning, then edit deeper in the text. Right now I'm perfectly happy with five hours of sleep, but I won't be later.

I was just rude to someone at the assisted living place.  But honestly, before you call to complain that something wasn't done, perhaps you should walk all of ten steps to the closet to check to see if it was done or not.  Dh spent 3 hours last night taking care of supply needs (the same ones they initially refused to tell me about) and to have them call to complain that it wasn't done, was the last straw for me.
