Why is it that every night I can actually stay up late (ie I don't have work or school the next day) I'm ready for bed at some insanely-early pre-dawn hour? Of course, it's even worse when I do have stuff going on. Last night I conked out on the couch before ER even came on, woke up around 11:30 and stumbled up into bed until 8:30 this morning. I swear, it feels like I'm still recouping from the trip.

Did some more babysitting this evening, about three hours while Jessica went to the gym. It went by quickly, and painlessly, as there was no homework and I didn't have to worry about doing anything for dinner. We watched some movies and then I gave the boys a bath, and I'd just gotten them in their jammies when their parents came home. I'm only going to be over there once next week, on Tuesday from 3-8pm so Jessica can go to some kind of show. Whatever -- it's a relatively easy $50. And I have to admit... it's easier to deal with kids when the parents aren't around. Not that I'm mean to the boys, but they pretty much rule the roost from what I can tell, and I get the feeling that I'm more strict than their mom and dad are.

Once and Future Thing, part 2 tomorrow! Woo!

Watched BSG tonight. I'm not in fandomy bliss over it or anything, but it's interesting. And Lee is hot. So I watch.

erica_w, your icon -- bwah.

I haven't had a full-blown panic attack since I got those books the other day. I think there's kind of a comforting effect from reading about a problem like this, because you're gaining knowledge about it and thereby gaining a sense of control... and also because you're learning that you're not the only person in the world feeling these things. In fact, there's a lot of people out there even worse off than I am!

Abby's staring at me... waiting for me to go to bed.

Tomorrow, I'm going to...

- Do laundry (I swear, it feels like I'm having to do laundry every other day)
- Babysit Shelby
- Geek out at 5:30pm
- Write my first literacy assessment (due Monday)
- Do some actual fic writing

I feel like I'm forgetting something.

It'll probably come to me right before I fall asleep.

Oh yeah!

- Upload all of my DC pictures!

"This is a wonderful day. The terrorists can go to hell."

There are times - not many, but still times - that I really love Geraldo Rivera.

The polls in Iraq have been open for three hours. There have been a few small attacks, but so far only one reported death, and the footage of Iraqis voting - most for the first time - just brings tears to your eyes.

Update: A possible 4 killed in Sadr City by a homocide bomber.

Update: "I wonder why you need chemical boots in a country with no weapons of mass destruction."
