I'm feeling really fractured and jangled right now. Not sleepy, just, just this side of coherent. No powers of concentration at all. So I'll write a fractured LJ post...

Got a phone message (It's really getting to be time to get a new phone handset, so I can get phonecalls instead of just messages...) from JudyG, from missdimple's prompting. Alex is again eating like a little horse, the prednisone has restarted her appetite, and she is again energtic and alert. That makes me happy.

The bread machine has made it's second loaf. It was a slug, didn't rise, is dense and yeasty. Still tweaking the receipe for this climate and machine. I caught Birki munching down on a slice as fast as she could, so there was one positive vote.

Yesterday evening, I had a brainstorm, and went into work instead of going to bed. I got a fair bit done, but not as much as I had hoped. By sunrise, I was starting to fall asleep in my chair. So around 10am I went home, and slept. Fitfully, in part because Kidde and I were disagreeing over ownership of my pillow, and part because my dreams were full of shell scripts and find(1) predicates. So I went back at 3pm, and stayed till 6pm.

I need "Focus", something to get me to stay on task until the task is done, without constantly "wandering off". I've often had this problem, but it's getting worse. Again.

I've gotten a couple of emails about this. No, I havn't stopped going to the gym. Still going, every Monday Wednesday Friday at noon. Just not boring y'all with the numbers anymore. We did back and shoulder and tricep muscles on Monday, chest and biceps on Wednesday. I can still feel the stiffness in my back. Tomorrow, Friday, will be legs.

I have piano practice to do, there is a small student salon the weekend after next, and I want to sound better than I did at the last...
