Mom is happily watching her 49ers play while I’m tucked inside the “cooling room”, the only room in the house where I can bring the temperature down to a livable level for me…like in the mid 60s. With headphones and a stockpile of cookies you’d think I’d be a happy camper, but no. I’m irritated, my eyes want to pull down the lids and block out the world. I’ve only taken my puppy upper pills this morning but that’s about it. I need to change that so I don’t miss them any more. I can be such an idiot sometimes. I know better, I’ve seen the difference in myself between medicated and non medicated, the world knows the difference when I’m medicated or not medicated. And yet I let these slips happen. I’m such an idiot.
I want to just hide away in my room, in my bed where it’s safe. And I would too, if my mother could take care of herself in the least. She likes having a lady-in-waiting. It fulfills her imagined royal imagining that she is of royal blood, the she was ripped from the courts of the refined and noble world and put into the mire with the rest of us peasants. I’m not kidding. It’s put more sarcastically than I probably should state, but since I discovered that we really are related to the Plantagenet kings of England it has amplified her delusions of royalty. I haven’t researched the bloodline but I’m sure we’re there by way of a Fitz-Something*.
Okay, I know, cranky. If I had the patience I’d try to write this out in my journal, or if I had the energy I’d try to get some work done or my beads put together. I’ve decided that when I can sit and do 100 Om Mani Padme Hum’s in one sitting with beads interspersed for deep breaths then I will have the discipline to move into a more focused, or Zen like mediation. That is a worthy thing to do, especially for the Sabbath, but F it, I think I’ll take a nap instead.
