Weary


Clearly, I shouldn’t be allowed to stay up past my bed time. I stayed up reassembling my manuscript last night in order to send it off to an agent who had requested it: and I succeeded in doing so- the story is now back in one piece- but I am DRAGGING today. Partly I’m blaming the weather: it is damp and threatening rain so my whole body feels heavy and achy. Nothing seems quite able to shake it: coffee, energy shot, power napping, exercise… I’m just going to have to muddle through.

My mood continues to be pretty good: if I make it through today it will be five days in a row of good humor. I’m making an effort to appreciate it as much as I can while it lasts. The only dark cloud at the moment is worry about the cat who has gotten quite thin lately. She’s getting on in years, and hasn’t been eating much lately so I always worry it is a Sign of something. I made an appointment to take her to the V-E-T on Saturday for an annual checkup, but worry about how bony she has become. Her energy seems low, but her affection and appetite seem high. We’ve gotten into the (probably bad) habit of letting her have little table scraps of meat and butter in the hopes of giving her a little padding, but it doesn’t seem to have helped. It’s possible that the dry cat food has been making her constipated, but we’re out of it at the moment so I’ve been giving her little dollops of canned tuna. Unsurprisingly, she is loving it and keeps licking the plate clean. So, I might have created a monster, but at least she’s eating something.

Anyway, that’s my life right now. What I wouldn’t give for a nap…
