|The disappeared return

Man, have I fallen off my game or what?:
Spent the weekend in an absolutely vegetative mode. Did go out with people from the office Friday evening for karaoke, which was fun. Found a much better place for it than the place we've gone before. And Saturday evening I babysat for Kat and Eric so they could go out to dinner. But other than that, I was a slug. Got up at noon on Saturday and left the house long enough to drop off my dry cleaning and pick up some groceries, then came back, put on a movie - and fell asleep on the couch. Woke up with just a bit of time to spare before leaving for Kat & Eric's, where I stretched out on the couch with a book - and fell asleep. Came home and went to bed. Got up Sunday at the crack of 10, and did manage to do some laundry and clean up my office (YAY! - it was a sty), then spent the afternoon rewatching Fellowship of the Ring. Stayed off the computer, stayed off the phone, just rolled up like a pillbug - make the bad world go away!
I don't really feel ready to face it yet, but it has a tendency to be unimpressed by such silly considerations. At least this week has the advantage of one professor being out of town so I will be home relatively early in the evenings and can catch up on the classes in which I fell woefully behind while grinding through the paper.
And then next weekend I get to incorporate the changes my advisor wants for my final grade on the damned thing, since I am getting three credit hours of upper-level research for it. Like all such projects, it will never be finished, merely abandoned. At least the first draft is done and it's a matter of revision now.
