Song: “Rockin’ In The Free World” by the Moog Cookbook
For the first time in a while, I didn’t have any trouble getting to sleep last night. I got up around 9AM and had breakfast.
Hoping to continue the momentum that I’d built from yesterday, I sat down at my computer to continue writing but found that I just couldn’t concentrate enough to get back into it.
I went downstairs and did my mindfulness and worry exercises, and after that I sat quietly for a little bit and thought about what I was going to do today. While I was thinking about laundry, inspiration hit me and I thought of a whole other story to write.
I went back upstairs and sat down at my computer and let the words pour out of my brain again. It felt really good to sit there and spew coherent sentences onto the screen. I think that from now on I should make sure I do my mindfulness and worry exercises right after breakfast – I think that was one of the things that helped change things around.
This afternoon I did some laundry. Not a huge amount but the pile is smaller today than it was yesterday. Doing laundry isn’t what I’d call fun, but I don’t mind it. Besides, it has to be done, right?
Lloyd is doing well. He’s learned that when I show up at the tank in the morning that food is on its way so he swims over to where the hole is that I drop the food through and waits patiently. I fed him and watched him eat for a while. He seems to chew his food a lot – certainly more than the tetras in the big tank do.
Tomorrow I have an appointment with Dr W. I think I’m going to see if it’s okay to switch my appointments to every two weeks instead of every week. Things are going pretty well and I expect that if we do any medication adjustments that they’ll be minor. Dr W also has a good policy for making appointments on short notice if things are going bad, too, so if I need to get in before two weeks is up it won’t be a problem.
