A better night of sleep (thank you, Nathaniel!) and the start of a new week have already helped matters. There are three kinds of hummus in our fridge (chipotle, kale-chipotle, and beet, thanks to Sydney), several kinds of cheese, and I have cute squash ready for roasting (since Nathaniel is currently eating something like 1/2C-1C of pureed squash each day).
Plus, the kids are just really cute.

Now, off to start dissertation revisions. I have about two weeks before Sydney leaves for a week-long spate of conferences, and I’ll need to get my dissertation submitted by then if I want to graduate in January. Which I do. Besides, the sooner I get these revisions in, the sooner I can start some of the reading I want to do for “the book.” Like most academics, I’m much keener on the prospect of reading than I am of writing, so I’m using the pile of books as a carrot to propel me through this earlier mess.
