I woke up at 4 a.m….

I woke up at 4 a.m. furious because in my dream, we'd fallen behind on sending in the summer camp / preschool checks, and I was out walking and I saw Kavi walking Anand home. And I caught up to them and walked them home and set them up playing and tried to work the rest of the day, and then flash-forward to the next morning, when I have apparently brought the checks with me to the school / camp, but am yelling at them and demanding a formal written apology because they sent home a seven-year-old and a four-year-old to cross several streets by themselves. And the administrators are protesting that Kavi said she knew the way home, and I said are you going to believe a seven year old?? Who probably can actually handle the walk herself, but asking her to mind her four year old brother who still on occasion will make a break for it and try to dash across a street on his own??? And they said what could we do? And I said, you could *keep* them there, fine us if you have to, but this is completely unprofessional and unsafe and you're lucky I'm not trying to have your license revoked -- this was the point at which my fear for their lives + intensity of dislike of conflict and confrontation + justifiable outrage combined to wake me up.

I think I'm a little anxious about whether all our bills have been paid, given all my recent traveling. I should check on that today.
