Nosebleed

Was up in the middle of the night helping Kavi with a dramatic nosebleed — she gets them occasionally, poor kid. A little groggy and slow today as a result, and then I got into an argument with Anand this morning about politeness and family responsibilities, which we didn’t really have time to resolve properly before I had to drop them at camp, which is leaving me unsettled. Probably him too. Sigh.
 
We need to have that conversation, but I shouldn’t have gotten into it this morning; bad parenting choice. And now I’m having a hard time getting motivated to do anything, but I have a long to-do list. We’ll see if writing it down and checking things off helps. Going to be very granular. This is probably the next three days of work.
