If only the rest of the house could get to this stage, I'd be delighted. Unfortunately, that would require us having spare time and energy, neither of which are in abundance. Richard is bogged down with his other job, and I'm bogged down with coursework and paperwork, as well as being fatigued to the point of needing 12-14 hours in bed and 10-12 hours sleep per night. Haven't been terribly communicative with several people who are important to me lately. It's nothing personal so much as sheer exhaustion.
How much more winter do we have? I want my daylight back!
