ok repeat after me:

today I cannot work on my blog all day.
'today I cannot work on my blog all day.'

I must read through my dissertation. that's all I have to do.
'I must read through my dissertation. that's all I have to do.'

when that's done I must take care of adminstrative details from the art institute.
'when that's done I must take care of adminstrative details from the art institute.'

then I can work on my blog.
'then I can work on my blog.'

ok we're going to sit now and then to work.
'ok we're going to sit now and then to work.'




ok ok.

how it happened

so I did start to read through my dissertation and although I wasn't planning on it I also wrote a few things to explain this and that and by the time I was a quarter of the way through it I was exhausted and so decided that with the revisions that was enough for one day and was going to do something like work on my blog or something but then I fell asleep.

I can't believe how easy it is to fall asleep anywhere--anywhere!--once you reach a certain age. I can sleep bolt upright in my computer chair which doesn't even have padding or a place to put your head. I'll just let my head dangle on top of my neck when I'm in there. I've slept in that chair for hours. I just had a four-hour nap in the living room chair, where I had moved to be able to put my feet up on our little square coffee table. no more of this craving to be horizontal before you'll sleep. I don't feel that even slightly these days. I think I should go back to traveling coach on amtrak since it is apparent that I can now easily sleep in a space designed for one sitting body, and those spaces are actually designed to be able to sleep in.

well so. I guess I'll have a bowl of cereal and see if I need anything more than that to eat this evening. it's almost bedtime, after all.
