5:30 a.m.

Started work at 5:30 this morning...woke up for utterly no reason, tried desperately to fall back asleep after I saw the clock. And of course, the more one TRIES to fall asleep, the less one is able to. Too many "to do" items kept pouring into my head; I ended up giving and going to my office to work.

I forgot to mention that I got some beads put into my hair in the Dominican. Several women were on the beach doing it for 20 pesos a braid (roughly CAN$2). I asked for three, and got to choose the beads I wanted (you get three per braid). The braids still haven't fallen out, and they look rather silly here in wintery Toronto...but I can't bring myself to take them out yet. Every so often I'll hear them clacking a bit, and the memory of Dominican sunshine will help me get through my post-vacation work overload.
