This week has been less than relaxing: I've had that work deadline to meet, I got way overpeopled on the weekend, J's been very ill with a horrid non-strep throat infection, X did something awful to their sciatic nerve, the arm doctor visit took three goddamn hours and effectively ate my entire day yesterday, and today was a comedy of errors without the comedy (train delays, my nail polish is insufficiently sparkly, no food until 4 p.m., I got a call from the daycare because Kit faceplanted and bit their lip and bled everywhere, meds I was supposed to pick up weren't ready yet, probably other things I'm forgetting). I wish it had been more vacational. I also wish I'd done any of that room-tidying stuff.

But on the bright side, I didn't have to deal with non-project work on top of everything else! I suppose sometimes that's all one can ask from a vacation.
