Ok, so now I'm "really" up, for my initial waking was only a temporary thing, for, you see, the kitties wake up chipper as can be, but then they, too, decide that more rest is in order. This works fine on a day when I don't have to teach, but on a day when I do have places to go and people to see? Not so much.
The short version of the story is that I've lost my morning to catlike sleep patterns, and so now I must become a paragon of productivity for the afternoon. This sounds good on paper, but I am feeling very lazy indeed. Sigh. Perhaps if I have some lunch and make a list this will assist me in my efforts.
