So I got some sleep, had a good listen with bnymph
at 2am (This time it was mostly her blabbing and me listening, rather than the other way round), and Gabe volunteered to go to the Y and work out with me. I have two very good sons.
When we got to the Y, they wouldn't let him in the exercise room because he's not fifteen yet. So we left, and went for what was theoretically a run, instead. And then came back and made pancakes.
I do teriffic pancakes; this batch were rye/whole wheat with yogurt and lemon juice. Light fluffy texture, and ONE fills you up. While I was doing this, though, both boys disappeared upstairs, and only came down in time to tell me they were late getting out the door. We had a brief talk about communications, and how I can't know things without being told; then I fed them and shoved 'em out the door.
And then I came and read two LJ entries, one from odanu
about hospital funding, and one from wolfger
about the inverse relationship betwen security and a polite society. This got a good funk started.
And then a phone call from Ben, who is in D.C. today, detailing that crazybosslady still isn't convinced I've been officially heard from. So I have to write and send her a registered letter detailing my understanding of the situation. And I need to deal with my divorce attorney on the child support issue. And I have to get up a resume and start pounding pavement. On the positive side, Ben has me submitted for two different jobs, either of which I can do.
And I need to *not* hide under the bed and cuddle the dog. I can briefly cuddle the dog, then I have to get to work.
