I had a very rough night before last, and only got 4 hours of sleep. I woke up to the prospect of 3 sets of double lessons starting at noon, followed by a studio outing lasting until 11pm. To top it off, there was a minor PR disaster with one of the blogs I write in, and I had to extricate myself. Perhaps the biggest thing I did to survive the day was to simply keep myself open and listening to what the situation required. The PR issue was resolved and the lessons and outing went well, and I had just enough energy to spend some romantic time at home before passing out.
