Knitting the ravelled sleeve of care

Since waking up at 3 a.m. to finish paper grading, I have:
 
– finished grading
– taught my classes
– bought and ate a huge crab cake sandwich (probably twice as big as my normal lunch)
– taken to my bed for four hours for video games, tv, and Facebook
– staggered out of bed long enough to eat two slices of pizza
– gone back to bed
– resisted the strong urge to buy things on the internet — not anything I needed, just pretty shiny things, because they were there
 
I’m glad I got the papers done, but oof. My willpower is almost entirely used up, and my brain likewise. There’s a big part of me that really wants to do something productive — writing or art or knitting or even just organizing and cleaning up, but it also all seems like way too much work. Hopefully a good night’s sleep will bring me back to my normal over-achiever self.
