Got my 500 words, which puts me at 15,000 for Part 2 so far.
I just took a sleeping pill, in a Hail Mary attempt to unfuck my sleeping patterns. I have been sleeping for shit lately, I'm becoming dependent on coffee, and I'm sometimes more snappish with The Son than the situation calls for. The 2:00am hailstorm that sounded like an ocean's worth of broken glass and marbles being dumped on the house didn't help. I plan to be asleep in less than an hour!
