Did you ever sit in an all-day workshop or some sort of hours-long class where you got hit with so much new information that you thought your head would explode?
That was me today. This week I have to attend a mandatory five-day training from 7 AM to 3 PM. Mondays are normally my day off, so it was especially hard to be at work today. I did make sure to get to the classroom by 6:45 AM in order to secure the best seat (which I successfully accomplished), but that meant getting up at an hour when most sane people are still in bed– i.e. even earlier than the ass-crack of dawn.
On the plus side, I did get home while there was still daylight, and I was able to add a few more stitches to the Coastal Ripple afghan. It was exactly the kind of thing I needed to calm my overheated brain.
