Making the effort to chat with you folks... it's working!
I'm trying to tune my morning Bathroom Stuff, trying to make the dealing with that particular adventure into something less taxing and thus, less draining of the entire subsequent day.
Sent a note to a former student of mine who's off at Yale. Facebook depicts her as simply radiant, so all's well with her. I [65 underlines] THINK she's a rising senior this year, but I dunno... I told her she might hear some of my music back at the old Alma Mater, but more news as it happens. When it happens. With luck, not "if" it happens.
Still need to work on music. Still not quite bringing myself to engage it... I did find some tea in the archives, Yin Zhen I think, it ain't oolong but it ain't bad. Another morning strengthener, I hope.
Still struggling with the New Pill. Gotta take it precisely and only once a day, I'm still trying to find the time that works best; I may try evening this time, "afternoon" was yesterday's attempt and it didn't do what I'd hoped. The usual Fight with the Medical Companies, exacerbated by fights with insurance, continue to make things difficult. I need to use Medical Thing X times per day, thereabouts. Oh no, they say, you don't, you only need 2. No, I need X. No, you need what we say you need.
This doesn't work out so good.
A chef friend of mine will be caregiving tonight... We think it's prudent to leave someone with me who can actually walk & such, but with any luck, I won't need to be picked up off the floor, it doesn't tend to happen any more but one doesn't want to be surprised. We talk, we laugh, we get good yummy dinners... perhaps I'll show him some Food Wars, an anime series that seems to be a cross between Iron Chef and soft-core porn.
Perhaps I'll even work on music before I give up. Perhaps I won't. As Aragorn and many others posit in the Lord of the Rings...
Who can say?
