Go to bed immediately.
Unpack as soon as possible and get the laundry done before it starts taking over your house and making you feel insane. It's bad enough that the floors need to be vacuumed and mopped, you don't need piles of clothes around making it hard to get other things done. Besides, you only have two pair of decent underwear and you can't possibly move on with life if both of them are indisposed.
Pretend [this day] is the best day EVER. Dance around. Jump up and down often. Smile way to big for your face and people will laugh at you and not expect much out of you. You'll grow tired of pretending, but that's just because you're a loser grown up who hasn't had enough practice with make believe... try harder!
Eat copious amounts of pull-apart danish and Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. Trust me, this will open up your underwear options, you will be able to add the stretched out pairs back into your repertoire.
Mix it up.
Mix up your tea choices and go with REGULAR black tea once in awhile in stead of decaf. This will help with the lack of sleep your getting and the copious amounts of sugar-filled foods which cause your body to experience extreme highs and lows. At least you won't have to pretend anymore though, you really will be twitching and jumping up and down for a reason.
Take stock. Remember how good life is and what delicacies you came home to. Nothing is more important than this, nothing can get you down when you're with the ones you love. Take a breath, give thanks, have fun.
