Six Skittles left, you guys.  I am ass-bone tired. Weirdly, though, I have hit some sort of get ‘er done stride this week, like I’m post-flower (**UPDATE** my sister says it should be post-STAR, the flower is for fire-power DUH) flashy Super Mario and can do everything twice as fast as usual.  What blows my mind even more than that is that I’m also experiencing emotions I haven’t really had much of in a long time.  Emotions like patience and, I don’t know, happiness and shit.  The only thing I can figure is that I must have overloaded the Gah So Stressed portion of my brain and now when I process things they default to the Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be All Right portion instead. Fine by me brain! Make Default Setting, Save Changes!

The night L is finished with his last exam we are going straight to the tree-getting place and slapping that sap-filled sucker straight on the roof of our car.  And then we are going to mad deck some halls.  And then sometime after that I am going to get in the car in broad daylight and drive somewhere that is not my house and stay gone for a long time, maybe even through lunch and naptime. And dinner. And bathtime. Also bedtime.  It will be glorious.

And so with sleeves rolled up and a brisk clap I say to you, pink, orange, pink, green, orange and green: LET’S DO THIS THING.

He’s here, he’s just studying every waking minute of the day (no joke.) We see him briefly in the morning, but basically the rest of the entire day he is gone or shut up in the study. He has taken two of his four exams and will finish the last one on Thursday.
