Lori commented below that my boss is great.  He is, actually.  I'm mighty pleased he got re-elected.

He is, though, one of those people who is pretty darned easy to work for, because as long as you get the work done in a timely manner, he doesn't particularly care how you do it, where you do it, which hours you spend doing it, or whether you're professionally attired when you do it.  I think the working world would be a better place if more bosses were like this -- but I realize that we do have some flexibility in our particular little corner of the world, in that we don't have anything annoying like clients to deal with, so he can pretty much set his own rules.

The attempt to get more sleep/get more shit done has been going fairly well -- have been getting to work in the general vicinity of 9:30 and leaving in the 6:00ish neighborhood, and have focussed a lot more on productivity, with the result of actually producing work product, so I reckon that's all good.

FORCED myself to do stuff around the house today.  (Finally registered a stupid VAT-refund card online so that I won't get back-charged 10 dollars for a purchase in Ireland ... I've been procrastinating on that one ever since I got back.)  But I did that, and other things too (laundry!  bought cat litter!  sent emails to contractors to bid the crack in my driveway!) largely by promising myself a reward if I do everything I've got to get done.

.... it's a fairly big reward.  I think I might have to lose five pounds and unpack some of those boxes (more than a year since I've moved in) if I'm really going to deserve it.
