Just a quick thought for this morning. I know last night I said I was all keyed up and couldn't sleep. Then I promptly found something that helped relax me.
Something semi-mindless, routine, and mechanical. Something time-consuming.
This was about 1/4 of the complete ... MASS ... that we used at one time or another, and that I couldn't re-sort as we went along because, well, we might need them next session too. So, truly, the picture doesn't do the full pile full justice.
The best part was seeing my kids as they walked by the open door to my study (from the POV of the camera). Each one of them gasped, groaned, and said, "That's not for our game, is it?!?"
And that wasn't even when I had the GIANTS out either.
[cue evil laugh]
Or the dragons.
Once I was done, I was well and truly relaxed. Dropped right off. I think it was even better than my tranquilizers.
