First I was going to go to yoga with Grace. Then I was going to go to yoga myself. Then I listened to the weather and I was going to go to yoga myself, in my bedroom.
Now it is 8:05 and my body is telling me to skip even that and go to bed. I was going to write that my body is screaming, but that's a lie. It's too tired to scream. Instead, there's a constant murmur from the peanut gallery. "Lie down. You don't have to go to sleep. So what if it's 8 pm. You're tired. Just lie down."
There's no good reason not to, except for the list of 100 things I could be doing instead of sleeping.
Which is maybe why I can't get rid of the purple circles under my eyes.
