Charmion: Good job it happened sooner... !

Michelle: Just when you think your plate is full, it becomes more so! And not with the good stuff! You have said what you need, so surely you will keep that in mind, in addition to the needs of Pete and Jeremiah. Just remember that you cannot take care of others unless you take care of yourself. Hans Selye referred to this as altruistic self-centredness.

So after a decent day yesterday, this rainy day finds me more than half asleep. 3 hours on the internet to keep from falling asleep - after making us a nice BF and R going off for more of the same. At least he came home early (8) last night and went straight to bed - for 12 hours!

Green tea has not helped get my eyes open. I am thinking nap. Then: dishes, water plants, do some K re-organizing, finish making the soup, maybe make applesauce as the apples await me on the deck. Maybe I do not have enough energy for trips to Mill to pot two days in a row. Pots will be OK for another day or so, I hope. If they get too dry it is extra work. I did cover them with plastic.

R's share of clutter is being ignored until after he does that stress-producing presentation on 4th or 7th or?? I may be deluding myself to think there will be space before the next major stressor. Hope!
