  1. She sleeps late (or rather, until the time she used to get up before the time change). I relish the extra hour.
  2. He comes to show me what he’s done, looking sheepish and 10 years younger. I can’t hide my joy at seeing his real face and cover it with kisses, thoroughly enjoying not getting mustache hair up my nose.
  3. Unofficial last day.
  4. It’s the sore ear that makes me call the doctor. I feel guilty for not calling two weeks ago when the rash started, but I was certain it was a viral reaction. (I was right.) Antibiotics for the ear. Time for the rash.
  5. So. Much. Trouble.
  6. Four phone calls I’ve been avoiding and five important texts inside 30 minutes. Adulting at the speed of thumbs.
  7. Gold star.
  8. Cuban rum. Lemon. Coke Zero.
  9. The only way to break out of a rut is to push through the suck as you roll back and forth, gathering momentum, until you can breach the sides out onto level ground where you can run.
  10. But I’m still hungry.
