I am...

...past the earlier crankiness of having gotten zero, absolutely zero, sleep last night...yep, past cranky and into punch-drunk...

...enjoying punch-drunk so much more than cranky...

...feeling paranoid about the idea that I'm going to forget to pick up Max from school...this may be related to the no sleep thing...

...tending to a sick little boy...if making tea and toast and letting him curl up on the couch, wrapped in his blanket, to draw instead of "doing school" counts as tending...

...worrying about two of the people I love most in the world, for different reasons...and hating that I can do nothing to help either of them...

...looking forward to reading the latest adventures of another person I love dearly as she tackles more of the world...

...wanting, yearning, craving to pick up Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe back up and read some more...and pondering the idea of leaving a little early to pick up Max so I can sit in the parking lot and sneak in a few more pages...

...silently giggling over having just read that Rochester is in the lead for the golden snowball award (it's a New York state thing) with the pathetically small amount (56-ish inches) of snow we've had this winter...

...thinking that I should probably stop procrastinating and get this load of laundry folded...

...trying to ignore that annoying responsible voice in my head...at least until I finish this mug of delicious cinnamon spice tea...

...dreading typing up a lecture/discussion/handout on the digestive system...in comparison, folding the laundry looks damn good...

...hoping that one of these days I'll actually have something better to blog about :P

I am such a geek that despite knowing where you live, when I read "Rochester" my first thought was of Jane Eyre...

I empathize with your worrying about people you love. I just found out something that makes me worry very much for a couple people I love, so I'm in that same place right now... :/

the golden snowball award sounds fun, if it's for not having very much snow! I can't believe you are this close to me, I thought you lived in Middle of US for some reason....

cinnamon spice tea is good, and sneaking in pages of a good book is fun! I'm sorry about the worry you have. Sometimes I think it comes with having kids. Even when they're adults, the worry never goes away.

Amanda,
I'm sorry to hear you're worrying about loved ones as well...I so hope everything turns out okay! *hugs*

Susan,
Actually the "award" is for the New York city that gets the most snow, which is why it's so weird that Rochester is winning when we've only got 56 inches. It's just been a freakishly mild winter!
I hope you've been managing to sneak in a bunch of good reading yourself! :D

While it is good to blog about something better than having gotten no sleep, isn't it also nice to have a place to go in which you can say that you're crabby as hell or punch-drunk or whatever because you got no sleep and the people to whom you say it don't look at you and tell you to stop whining? Yeah, a blog is a good place to be on a day like you're having. I hope the tea helped and that you don't abandon Max to the care of the school system and that Gray gets better soon. Hang in there!

We had a very strange winter, too. I hardly had to shovel at all! We had considered buying a snowblower, so I am very glad we didn't because it would have been a waste...

Nope--this is the perfect thing to blog about. :)

I'm a bit nervous about the "warm" winter everyone's been having. After our heatwave last summer I'm wondering if it'll be even worse this year. Crossing my fingers--we desperately need some rain!!
