Extra notes: A needed day off tomorrow! Whew! My production this week has been very high, and I can definitely feel it. I get to 10 or 11 pm and am falling over dead tired.

We're heading to Brookings for more medical care for Kye, who's really been through the ringer the past week-plus, and for more errands, groceries, etc. These days off--Friday and Sunday for me--are so necessary to recharge my batteries. Sunday, especially, I struggle to do as little as possible. I say "struggle" because it's difficult for me to just chill out and relax. I feel like a laggard. Contradictorily, I often feel inspired to write an essay or rant on Sunday. Many times I do. Oh, well. I'm not perfect. Never said I was.

Spring is in full bloom up here. It's beautiful, fragrant, and calming all by itself.
