Craving relaxation soo bad!

I'm completely and unutterably mentally beat right now.

I've been doing a lot of casual (read: unpaid) overtime each week day and I did 8 hours of paid OT last Saturday. I haven't had much time to write a blog post about life because I never feel like I get time to decompress and de-stress. I can't imagine how my colleague who has two has young children feels.

I'm solving (and finding) code problems in my sleep. My last three runs have stunk.  I somehow managed to kill one of my starter sourdough yeasts. The other one seems to be surviving okay:
still a bubblin'
All I want to do is curl up and take a nap most of the day but I've got to mess around with C code instead.

I'm not complaining, really. Just doing a mental dump of the current contents of my brain.

I headed home on time this evening though! It is a beautiful day in MA, not too hot or humid, and it just cried out for a good run. My Garmin decided to be a little brat and not acquire satellites so I left it at home to think about why it was bad Garmin. I ended up running about an hour and just felt great the entire time. It was just what I needed to get some of the stress out.

In more fun and upbeat news, Eric is treating me to a haircut at a fancy salon in Boston on Saturday.
Mizu Boston
I'm looking forward to it a lot because I haven't had a haircut in something like 7 months now. My current hairstyle is mane because it's wild and unruly. It's so heavy I've destroyed half a package of Goody elastics.

And now that this is done
pop, pop!
I'm off to watch the season finale of SYTYCD. Go Melanie!
