One of my children had technical difficulties with a project (it hadn’t occurred to her to download a trial video editor software that she needed for a project), so I’ve been up quite late putting that project to bed. That’s okay — it’s why I’m the grown-up and she’s still a teenager.
But, as I said, I’m up quite late. I always have insomnia after working late, so I don’t expect to have anything approximating a good night’s sleep. My current plan, therefore, is to get the kids and the spouse out of the house tomorrow morning and then to gather the dogs around me and to try to go back to sleep.
If this plan works, it’s unlikely that I’ll be at my computer before 11 or noon, so please use this as an Open Thread. If this plan doesn’t work, I’ll be at my computer early, but probably writing gibberish. Years ago, I got too old for all-nighters. I’m now too old even for half-nighters.
