I think I'm beginning to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. School is out. My class really worked hard the last two weeks, and most of the yearbook pages are done. The editor has to wrap up the division pages that tie the book together, and I have plenty of proofing to do. But it's a manageable amount of work. It all has to be in the mail a week from Friday.
Graduation was last Saturday. I'm going to brag a bit on my darling daughter. She was the valedictorian of the senior class. She gave a lovely and positive speech. She stayed far away from the cake at the reception, even though pictures of the seniors were on top of the cake in colored icing. How do they do that? What kinds of chemicals and artificial colors must it take? It's fascinating to look at, but I wasn't tempted to eat it.
I've eaten well during this stressful time, but I haven't had nearly enough sleep. I have a fever blister!! The first in more than 20 years. I know it's the lack of rest. I have rarely been to bed before midnight in the past 3 weeks. More nights than I care to admit, my light was still burning at 2am. It's not quite 10:00 as I type this blog. I have one more e-mail to write, then I intend to crawl into bed and read for a few minutes before I close my eyes.
