I've been sleeping on my mattress on the floor (as opposed to on the bedframe) for three or four nights now, and the change is tremendous. My back is much improved. Obviously, I need a Really Big Piece Of Plywood.*
I turned off my alarms and slept in this morning, got up around eight feeling rested and in fact a little lazy, and am just settling down towork now. I think I am going to make tea and warm up some lemon spaghetti*** and construct a nest in the big chair and have a writing festival today, with a possible side trip to the gym after the mail comes.
I'd like to put some road behind me.
I'm really enjoying having some long uninterrupted stretches of time to myself. I have, I think, been over-peopled lately. It's so hard being an introvert with friends and a rewarding career. **

*** spaghetti or angel hair (I use whole wheat), lemon pepper, butter & olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, herbs of your choice, and parmesan or romano cheese. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
