February 19--a bloom between storms

I spent about 14 hours working on my proposal today. I forget what I said about it yesterday, but I am really brain dead now. I just submitted this second revision--one more to go before I have to present it for formal approval.

I was supposed to make a powerpoint to go with it, but I lack the reserves, and asked for a one-day extension. Tomorrow is a holiday, so I have some time to catch up.

I slept terribly last night, I woke up at 1:30 am and laid there until about 3. Then I fell into a fitful sleep with odd dreams. I got up at 6:30 and started in again on my proposal. It's pretty unusual for me to not sleep well, and I didn't stress about it--just accepted it as a stress response. I will sleep better tonight, and wake up at 8.

It is starting to storm again, and we are expecting a lot of rain overnight and tomorrow. I went out to the backyard for some air this afternoon and saw that my camellia plant decided to bloom. It sits under the patio overhang, so probably didn't know that it's not fit weather for blooming. Anyway, it gave me something to photograph today, since I didn't go anywhere except to walk to the end of our street to hack the closest Ingress portal, in the rain, while Malida was out getting me some shrimp tacos. I am at 181 days with continuous daily hacks. I got a medal yesterday. Whee!
