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.

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.
- Upload all of my DC pictures!
