How did it get to be bedtime?

I was gonna go out dancing tonight, but I got home around 3pm and puttered and ended up taking a nap (hi, I got like six and a half hours of sleep last night) and I was already feeling kinda done with going out and being social after Temple and I wasn't particularly in a mood to go out dancing anyway.  (I spent much of the afternoon going back and forth as to whether the response email I sent last night was a bad one or not, and while I wholeheartedly agree that what I need is distraction, I think that situations that I find inherently stressful would not work well.)

(In other news, where is my Catie Curtis Dreaming in Romance Languages CD?  Though "Saint Lucy" -- which is what I had running through my head earlier today -- and "The Trouble You Bring" are on one of the mixes I have on my computer, which I'd forgotten.)

Do not be afraid, I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come and follow Me
I will bring you home
I love you and you are mine

Five good things about today:
1. I was totally awake the whole time I was at Temple.
2. People at Temple were nice.
3. Interesting stuff in the commentaries at Temple.
4. I got my hair cut.  $20 walk-in at Michael Anthony's on College Ave. right in Davis Square.  I felt kind of awkward with the hairdresser (Louise), but she did a decent job.  I'm not sure if it's uneven in the front because the part got shifted in all the wind or if she just did it wrong, but I can always change the part if it really bothers me.
5. mjules, your comment to me about rest has been a really good thing to return to throughout the afternoon today.  Thank you.

Three things I did well today:
1. I got up and went to Temple.
2. I did laundry.
3. I washed dishes.

Two things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
1. CWM
2. phone call with Ari
