Apparently I've been staying up too late working on my thesis.
Or so I've been told by a certain 8 year old who doesn't like waking up "around 1:00 or something" and realizing I'm still downstairs.
Honestly? It's just easier to concentrate after she goes to bed. No piano practice (she's teaching herself to play), no CDs playing, no one hour of television, no imaginary playing school, no endless trips to the freezer for ice cubes to suck on (WHY won't she just pour herself a glass of water?!?!?), no requests for snacks or lunch or swimming or "just something FUN please!"
It's just quiet...and I can concentrate...most of the time...until this happens
Why does she only want to sit in my lap when I'm trying to work?!? It's really hard to write and/or type with a cat's head resting in the crook of my elbow!
