I'm going insane. No, really this time.

Kids had terrible naps, constantly waking up, so now they are exhausted. They need secondary naps, even 30 min would be fine, but they're not likely to get it. And by 5 pm (it's now 4:17) we have to be at my folks' house for Kasia's birthday dinner. The kids are going to be worse by the time this is over, I figure. M is already rubbing his eyes and yawning, but he refuses to nap, letting me know very loudly that he doesn't want to be in his crib; K will lie down but I know she won't sleep.

A can of diet Mountain Dew tastalike is keeping me going (thank goodness I limit my daily caffeine for just such a time and purpose as this!) but I'd like some time off myself. Ah well!

K actually played w/the needlework a bit, running a threaded needle in and out of material. Not in any pattern, of course. ^_^ I should get her a colorful plastic hoop and some scraps of fabric, and then tie thread onto a needle so they won't come apart; she'd probably be very interested for a while and then get tired of it, but it would be fun while it lasted.

Have thought of a story for firstlines1000's current challenge. Should have loads of ethical stuffies in it and potential jumping-off points. And it's completely different from the weird plot idea that I've documented here in the past couple days!

You know, I just know I ate something this afternoon, but for the life of me I can't remember what.
