I must admit. I'm feeling a bit down today.
Even watching Alyce at swimming lessons didn't sway my mood, though it was still thirty minutes well spent. Alyce glows in the dark with her pale skin and white hair and her general pixieness, and it's all I could do not to scoop her up and jump in the pool with her myself. But I exercised great restraint and watched, from behind the glass, as Alyce taught the other kids how to scoop water from the pool into their mouths.
Shira has returned to her non-sleeping ways (with thanks to some new teeth), and in my now-familiar state of exhaustion I'm finding it hard to get moving in the world. So here I find myself, unable to feel my best. For tonight, I think I'll leave it at that. With some extra rest (see how optimistic I remain?) I can start over in the morning.
Anyone else in a midweek slump? Or maybe you have a good story to lighten my mood? I'm all ears.
