This vacation has been pretty low key, plenty of sitting around the table with Adrienne's mother and friends, drinking coffee and laughing.
Lots of laughing; very restorative.
Today was the Fat Tuesday Brunch here at Lola's condominium. I couldn't sleep last night. I tried reading, then writing, then surfing the net aimlessly, then listening to music; I wasn't falling asleep. Sometime after midnight, I took an Ambien, and still felt wired. At some point I got on the Internet and sent a bunch of messages to people. When I got up again, the air was full of dancing points of light, leading me back to bed and the arms of Hypnos.
Post-bender tremulously, I woke up a few hours later and started my day. Evidently, from what Adrienne has said, I was unsteady on my feet at the brunch. I came back early and threw myself into bed for a solid, hour long nap, orthotics and all.
Lunch is next, then a trip to the pool.
