OK, yes, it's 2 AM, and yes, I'm up. I was sleeping fine about three hours ago, right after Crossing Jordan, which is the last thing that I remember before Mary asked me if I was interested in going to bed. I went up to bed and began obsessing over all of the things that could go wrong at the printer that would make the training materials that I sent to them unusable in the eyes of my client, and what I would say to them if that were the case, and how I would explain it to the boss (who will be there to watch me on my first real training assignment in over a year) and to the client, and, well, I couldn't get to sleep. I got up an hour ago and did things to get myself ready (packed my laptop, printed my directions to the customer site and to the hotel) and put this thing on to see what was happening. And of course you're all asleep, so there's nothing happening.

I'm debating whether I should get in the car and drive over to Kinko's and pick up the materials. The upside would be that, if everything were done right, I'd be able to sleep. The downside would be that, if everything were done wrong, I wouldn't. I think I'll stay in; it's raining outside and I don't need the aggravation. Which, of course, means that I need to find a way to get to sleep, which means that I have to find a way to stop obsessing over all of the things that might go wrong. Which puts me right back where I started.

This sucks. I'm going to bed.
