It's 10:18 and my eyelids are half-shut already.  I feel like I don't know how to navigate my own schedule yet.  Everything is getting done, but everything feels like it takes me all day.  There are no pauses.  I am a shark.  Must keep moving.  I'm glad to know that will go away soon, but it's Crazytown, population: me right now.  I have to get up and run tomorrow, only I would love nothing more than an extra hour of sleep.  Yeesh.

School is going well.  I'm happy with my young charges; today I actually got to talk with them instead of at them.  Yesterday was a reverse minimum day, ironically tiring.  Today was a much more normal schedule, so it felt better.  Familiar, if not yet routine.  I'll be happy when we get past the part where the freshmen think they need to make fun of me under their breath for everything I do because like oh my god, she's so dumb.  Once they learn I embrace my own awkwardness it's just easier because we can laugh at me together.  Seniors were great today--although the secret is out about me, numbers and crazy.  Had to do that whole thing for them and answer a bunch of questions.  Funny.  :)

The monkeys are doing wonderfully.  It seems like they never left school.  I guess that's the difference between a six week break and a regular summer break.   They're fine.  Everyone is back in the routine at home, although we did have some procrastination issues with Henry tonight.  Homeboy had to be told six or so times to get in the shower, and then he was in such a hurry to get his patoot down the hall that he ran smack into the door frame.  Kids.  Yeesh.

That's all, Internet.  My feet are throbbing and my back is melting into the memory foam.  It's time to close the 'puter.
