I'm not running at 100%.
I don't know what it is exactly. General apathy. Sore feet. A need for large quantities of sleep. All of the above.
We're getting by. I'm getting through the necessities. (It seems I can only write in short sentences. That pretty much sums it all up.)
I'm just not moving forward. All I can do is get by.
On Saturday I thought I was back. I made valentines with Carmen and Chloe. Some persistent clutter got cleared away. And I was looking forward to a week with all the kids back in school. (Jaclyn and Steven have been home studying for finals and midterms respectively.)
I thought I might have a productive week ahead of me.
Till I took a call today and said yes to working an extra shift for a hygienist who has a child in the hospital. Can't say no to that.
And till I reached for the Advil tonight. (Burning eyes, ache-y head.)
Maybe one more week of operating at like 37%. Darn.
Jaclyn spelling me off quizzing Steven on science.
On the bright side, Steven, Jaclyn and I aced exams.
You read that right.
I know you know.
(I thought I was done with studying when I graduated from college.)
