I've been a little out of it for the last couple of days. Actually, I suspect I've been "a little under the weather" (i.e. quite sick but in massive denial about that) for the last couple of weeks. So, after spending Tuesday home sick -- officially, as it were -- I've made it a point to just work on necessities and get a lot (a LOT) of sleep. This has been... instructional.
Did you know that when people sleep, they have dreams? I seem to have forgotten that. I mean, yeah, sure, weird dreams -- like the one where the mysterious cat was going around freeing children from the influence of some sort of ogre (or something) that had taken a place in the local school, leaving me and a woman to collect the newly-released kids and try to keep them safe from the rest of the town, which was still under the ogre's influence. But, yeah. If I sleep deeply enough and long enough, I not only have dreams; I remember them.
The Beautiful Woman is going out of town this weekend, so I'll be a single parent temporarily. Still, I think I'll be okay if I can just stay focused on my two goals: sleep and laundry, in that order.
