I took the family out to dinner last night, then went home and put everyone to bed.
Well, sort of.
Firstborn was full of energy, so while he was in his room with the lights off, he wasn't exactly "in bed". At least, not unless there's some alternate use of the phrase that actually indicates "zooming around his room and building monsters with his Trio blocks beside the nightlight".
So, while I was waiting for him to fall asleep, I... well, I passed out on the living room floor. (It's just barely possible that I was a bit more tired than I'd realized.) Anyway, after a bit I dragged myself back to my feet, brushed my teeth, and collapsed on the bed in the back room. (This is nominally "my" bed, but in practice it belongs to the cats.)
And then I overslept.
All told, I think I got a bit over ten hours of sleep. Now I'm feeling both vastly better rested, and at the same time somewhat delicate and clumsy. Also a bit stuffy, but you can blame the cats for that. And, of course, I haven't written anything on the next/last installment of Friendly Evangelism. Depending on how today goes, I'll probably finish that tonight. I don't expect it to be very long, after everything we've discussed already.
So, in the meantime, I have a challenge for the geeks, nerds, and horror fans in the room. Here are pictures of the monsters that Firstborn made with his Trio set. Can you identify them? (These were done entirely on his own, by the way. It was his idea to build them, and he didn't have any help with the design and construction. It is, of course, entirely my fault that he knows about such creatures in the first place, but still... I'm soooo proud of him.)
And, just as a special bonus (so Firstborn doesn't get all the attention), here's a shot of Secondborn amusing himself with a new toy. It's empty, I swear.
