I'm hoping tomorrow will be more or less a down day. But today is the shanty sing and I'll be there in "being Tom" mode.

Tomorrow a friend is bringing over a recliner (and taking away the old chair) so that Tom can more easily keep his feet up as ordered by the doctors. Perfect -- doesn't take up much space, is designed to be close to the wall, etcet etcet.

Tom had me awake an hour or two before I wanted to be this morning. He was up, in his wheelchair, knocking stuff over, trying to get dressed. It was dark. It was early. I haven't had enough REST in almost two weeks. Got him semi-settled; turned on lights and radio. Went back to bed. Cats didn't want me asleep either. So...made him coffee. Put the phone back to recharge. (Got to get back into the routine.) Took a cup of tea upstairs and try, TRY, to become one with the universe. Imbibed the tea, indexed a few more of Tom's freelance articles from 1995, slaughtered two wasps, petted cats (but not enough as far as they're concerned), reread two pages in a light mystery about 4 times still with zero comprehension, got some junk mail culled from the huge stack on the table and thrown out so I had a place to eat breakfast.

Arghhh! Better put some clothes on. Shanty sing this afternoon.

I want a nap!!!! (And I ain't a gonna get one.)
