Today was hard. The letdown after the trip plus the sleep deprivation plus the return of the heat today added up to a big blah.
My feet are swollen. My eyes burn. My brain is mush. I'm drowsy but I can't sleep. My pinky toe still throbs from smashing it on a chair leg my first night home. That raised a blood blister and popped it in one fell swoop.
That's not why I can't sleep tho. I just can't stop thinking of all the things I need and want to do now that I'm home. But every task I start gets about five minutes of attention before something reminds me of another task that maybe should take priority or I'm interrupted by someone or something outside of my own mind.
Also contributing to not sleeping is the noise inside my ears. One ear sounds like it contains the North Wind and the Arctic Ocean surf while the other sounds like a chorus of car alarms that won't quit or the horn section of an orchestra tuning up for the symphony. This has been going on for weeks.
It's supposed to be hotter tomorrow. 99F. *shudder* No AC!!!
I did not intend to have myself a pity party post.
It is after midnight now and finally starting to cool off enough I'm starting to feel a bit more ambitious. I think I'll get back to reading The World Without You by Joshua Henkin. My review is past due. :(
