Today's idiom I taught my ESL class: burning the candle at both ends. Let's just say I could totally use myself as an example. I literally lost my thought four times during class today, completely unable to remember what the hell I was talking about.

Between work, visiting my mom at the hospital in all my free moments, and starting a business with a friend (with a deadline looming very closely overhead), I'm about ready to be locked up in a psych ward.
I'm about to go postal on a few people's asses.
