On a splendid Tuesday...

I'm sitting here with a nice cup of coffee and a cigarette and it's time to give you another update on my exciting life. At least it's become more exciting than it used to be and I'm enjoying it ever so much more. There's the sheer thrill of being alive and happy and free of stress and sadness. That in itself is a lot to be joyful about. I can't believe I get to exist in this incarnation but it's real. It's a dream come true.

After having looked at many volunteer jobs, I think I may have found the perfect one. It is working five mornings a week for the long term recovery care of the university hospital. The job is from Wednesdays through Sundays and of course nobody is going to be bothered if I work on the weekends.  I have an interview for it next week and I'm looking forward to it very much. Do keep your fingers crossed for me because I so count on getting it.

Tyke was sick and on two courses of antibiotics. He had a gastro-intestinal bug and a fever and it was a little tough getting rid of it. The poor thing was feeling pretty bad there for a while and was not his normal perky self at all. He seems to be a lot better now but is still not eating all that great. I'm feeding him rusk toast and bananas and other easy to digest food. Other than that, he's still as lovable as ever but has become very grown up. He's become a lot more mellow and not half as naughty which is a good thing I guess.

Things in my life are going well. The only thing I haven't gotten quite worked out is sleeping well at night but I'm not about to take sleeping pills for that problem. You'd have to hold a gun to my head before I'd take them. I get bursts of sleep and I suppose that in the end I do get enough. Sometimes I have to take a little nap in the afternoon. I assume that sooner or later I will start sleeping normally again.

Have a wonderful week!
