Day 177: Things Are Looking Up

It’s a new day and a new week.  The sun is shining again and it’s a nice day even though it’s a bit cooler out there…but there’s no wind so that is pretty awesome.  And, I saw my 1st dragonfly of the year.  Hopefully, that’s a good sign.  Rick is doing so much better.  He’s regaining his strength and the wound is healing very well.  He’s trying to do too much though and he gets lightheaded.  I keep trying to impress upon him just how much blood he lost and I think that I finally got through to him today.  But now he’s trying to figure out a way to postpone the cardiac ablation on Tuesday.  I’m fighting him every step of the way though.  It has to be done and, if it works like it’s supposed to, it should take him out of A-fib and he’ll feel so much better.  But he hates hospitals with a passion!  And he makes that known to every nurse, CNA, doctor, etc…  I spend most of my time while there apologizing to everyone that has come into contact with him.  Funny thing though, he was nice the entire time he was at Parkland.  I chalk that up to the blood loss.  I’ve been doing a little rearranging here in my Magical Writing Haven.  Of course, that really means that I’m finding space to bring more of my writing books in here.  I think that I’ve exceeded the weight-bearing limit of my new shelves.  I could die any minute if they suddenly break apart and all of the books come down like a bound paper avalanche.  I might not be able to dig my way out from under them.  Oh well, as people have a tendency to say…I will have died doing what I love.  I am so wanting to take a nap now but I have to be strong and resist the temptation if I am to have any hope of going to sleep tonight even close to when I should.  Monday is always a bit of a beatdown and adding lack of sleep into the equation makes it unbearable.  And I’ve got some things that I have to get done fast tomorrow morning so I need to be awake…or at least as awake as I can be on a Monday morning.  While my body is tired at night, my brain goes into hyperdrive and shutting it down is an almost impossible task.  And it’s even worse now that I’m off of my sleep schedule.  Well, if I don’t get up and move around right now, I’m going to fall asleep in my chair.  I hope that we all have a good Monday.  And, with that, I’m hitting publish.
