Attempted drowining barely averted

I spent the weekend in LA with my family by my mom's pool. My brother's kids came over and were so excited to see Aunty Almondnut that they dragged me into the pool and almost drowned me. At five years old, the most exciting game in the world is "splash the adult"

I spent a lot of time with my mother. She's getting older and in some ways, is not showing the wisdom that is supposed to come with age. She knows that picking up heavy objects puts her in bed for days, but she still does it. I had to run around after her, picking up the things she needed and taking things away from her. We almost had a tug-fight in a store because she wanted to hold 10 hangers full of heavy clothes. I realize that its hard for her to get used to limitations and I'm trying to be as subtle about it as I can.

I spent much of the trip falling asleep. I didn't realize how tired I was getting.

Now that I'm home, I'm still sleepy. I need to go to the lab and get some work in..and I plan to go tonight no matter how sleepy I am. Gotta push myself or I'll never make it to grad school. Just a few more months of solid work and then I can rest for a bit.
