I remember two nightmares from last night; otherwise, I think I slept quite well. I think I slept through J’s alarm this morning, too.
I felt quite groggy again until around 10AM. I had breakfast and then went downstairs to sit on the couch until the fog in my head dissipated. Once my head had cleared, I got up and wandered aimlessly around the house for a while, trying to think of something to do.
One of the fish was in the process of kicking the bucket – swimming sideways and upside down, making big swooping moves up to the surface before floating back to the bottom, that sort of thing. It has since made its way to the giant pond in the sky. We’ve had those fish for almost a year now, so I don’t think we’ve done too badly. These are our first fish, after all.
Dr P loaned me a book on ACT two weeks ago so I sat down to get some more reading done. It’s an interesting book and I can relate to a lot of the scenarios that it mentions. So far, the ACT that I’ve been working on with Dr P has been going well and I think the skills I’m learning will be a good addition to my toolbox.
After I put the book down I went and played Borderlands for a little while, then I pulled a chair up in front of the aquarium and watched the (remaining) fish and shrimp go about their business for a while. I think I’ve said it before but I find the shrimp to be more entertaining and interesting than the fish. They scuttle around all over the tank, eating leftover fish flakes and cleaning the algae off the plants. When they’ve got food in their claws it looks like they’re doing some kind of intricate origami as they eat it. Neat little monsters.
I was supposed to have a Dr W appointment today but it has been rescheduled until Thursday. Fortunately, I’m feeling a little better than I was a couple of days ago so I don’t feel like I’m drowning and need him to throw me a rope. I still don’t feel well but I’ll take where I am now over where I was last week.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do tomorrow. Every time I plan something, I don’t seem to accomplish it and then I feel bad about it. Maybe I’ll just see what happens. There’s always laundry to do.
