I slept *great* last night. Too great, because I didn't wake up until 9 AM. (The same thing happened on Monday. We both woke up at 9 AM and missed our son's middle school graduation. He didn't notice until it was all over. Good kid.)
My husband was nice and offered to drive me down to my internist's appt. I had yet another blood draw (my pdoc is a Jewish mother--spiritually if not actually--and frets about my thyroid, and now that I talked her into prescribing Zyprexa she's fretting about my blood lipids and glucose) and talked to my wonderful internist for a few minutes. I said I would miss him. He said he would miss me. He doesn't know any internists in the San Francisco area. (He should make more friends.) He's sort of goofy.
My daughter's friend Muffin came over and left with a couple of grocery bags of books.
(Me: You have to give away some books.
Daughter: Oh, I can fit all my books on the shelves.
Me: Ha ha ha ha ha)
I tried pointing out to her that if she gave away enough books, she could go to the publisher's remainder warehouse and get *more books*. She didn't buy that one.
I took nine grocery bags of books to the library's sale room on Tuesday.We all suffer from the dreaded Book Addiction. Especially when they are cheap. We all read at the table, too.
I'm trying to collect more things for Value Village. We took all the boxes down from the attic a couple of days ago. I emptied three or four of them. Went thru some sewing things and sneaked in a little sewing. For a long time I didn't want to sew, and now that I've got more important things to do I *need* to sew. It's relaxing.
The more mentally healthy I get the less time I spend at the computer. PB is less engaging, too. I'm interested in what's going on with the people I know, but I don't feel like posting very much.
