Caffeine, Please

"Quiet Time" (as opposed to daily afternoon three-hour-long naptimes) continues to kick my ass. Sixty to 75 minutes, during which--now that we need to eat dinner at 5 p.m. in order to get the kindergartner to bed at 6:45--I generally spend most of my time cooking? Uh, no. Not restorative. Not helping my coma-like exhaustion.

Particularly when, in recent days, I've been awake at least once from THREE A.M. ON worrying about finances, the economy, my psychologist's license, and the future of my career. Yeah, that's not tiring AT ALL.

Good thing my devoted friend MNMom is loaning me her stovetop espresso maker later today, until we replace our burned-out espresso machine. Because people, this kind of existence is UNSUSTAINABLE.
