The rain sucks. I was fine - fine!!! this morning. Now I'm a cranky exhausted old lady with arthritic claw-fingers. Ouch, and damn, and fuck. I'm going to take a hot bath and sleep. All the morning's beautiful ideas are jotted down for later, if I manage to nap and get warm and revive.
Hurts to open the fridge, hurts to hold a pen or a fork, hurts to pick up my mug of hot milk. Ow ow ow. I'm really happy someone else took out the recycling and garbage. It hurts to hold the steering wheel of my car. Rook is doing the dishes now, which is awesome. If you ever get this problem, remember that plastic plates and cups are extremely helpful because they don't jab into your knuckles while you wash them, and they're not so heavy.
If I whine a bit here, then it's easier to be cheerful in daily life no matter what I'm feeling physically.
The thing to do is to schedule in the bits of rest and to be super active in between.
Fucking rainy season is almost over!!!!! Be over! I hate winter! Thank god for no more snow in my life... ever.
Moomin and I hung out in the library all afternoon reading comic books. I read a very strange little book by... Justin Crane? About a boy and his cat Jack going up a spiralling stairway and making friends with a cloud. We met Moomin's old friend from Montressori school, Spam, who talked my ear off a mile a minute, just like when he was 18 months old and introduced himself to me in the park.
Tomorrow night should be funny - the class on starting a blog - who will come? And how will I teach a computer class without a demo screen hookup thingie? They had one months ago but now everything's almost-renovated, but not quite renovated enough, and there's no projector.
