My second day off accomplished much less, because I didn't sleep well and thus dragged through the morning. I think I managed to move a total of five objects off the kitchen table into new homes. R- had a dental appointment in the morning, and then acquired another for the afternoon. I did actually get a nap in the afternoon, which gave me enough energy to go feed two demanding equines (ears forward, whuffling over the fence, "WHEN are you going to feed us?" Note: it was their usual feeding time.) For once they both went into their stalls without my having to say "Go stall!" and they waited there while I got the feed into the buckets, the little gate open and shut.
Some of the laundry still needs to be folded. Eh. For lunch I had leftovers from the night before--R- had gone down to the local place and brought back Mexican dinners (the local place knows how to cook Tex-Mex) but we had eaten 1 1/2 of them. So I put the cold, hard, unappetizing cheese enchilada and some refried beans and some rice in a baking dish, grated more cheese over the whole, and stuck it in the oven. YUM.
By the time I let the horses out, R- was home with a half-numb mouth and post-dental-surgery orders and a load of antibiotics. I made him mashed potatoes for supper, and later got him some ice cream. I noodled around in the computer with a LiveJournal post from last summer that I want to put on the website (having run into more examples of people--including other women--trying to shame women for writing their truth) but it's not right yet.
I hope I can sleep better tonight. I need to re-establish a more normal sleep-wake pattern than I've had since before I got sick in November.
