Motivational Panties

Lion is wearing these panties.

I haven’t been feeling well the past few days. I don’t know if it was connected or not, but it started with my stomach and with the stomach still lurking in the background, I got a headache. Then the headache lurked in the background and said just sleep off and on all day. And, of course, I didn’t get to sleep until 2 am so I slept late-ish this morning. Anyway, the point is, I’m not feeling 100%. There was no way I was going to give Lion any attention last night, play or sex or whatever you want to call it.

When I did the dinner dishes, I noticed Lion hadn’t put the coffee pot together. He’d taken his mid-morning break and was in the kitchen but he hadn’t done it. I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be in the mood to punish him when I “caught” him in the morning, so I decided to give him a hint. I asked if he forgot something. He didn’t think so. Then he thought of the coffee pot. He did it right away. As it turns out, I slept so late that he started the coffee anyway so he would have caught his mistake this morning.

I know what you’re thinking. I did him a disservice by reminding him. The way I look at it is I did myself a great service by not having to punish him. I really feel drained. It’s like I can’t possibly get enough sleep. I think Lion is in the same boat because he dozes off a lot too. Maybe it’s the social distancing coma. The more we don’t do things, the more we don’t want to do things. There’s no motivation.

Well, I do have some motivation today. I need to make us masks so we can take a fairly scary trip to Seattle to get Lion’s eyes checked. He’s losing some vision and his pressures need to be checked. Every time we leave the house, even if we follow all the guidelines, I’m afraid we’ll bring the virus home with us. Since hospitals already have all the sick people, it’s very scary to be going to one right now. Luckily, we won’t be anywhere near the emergency department or patient rooms. That makes it only slightly less scary.

I also have a video conference with work today. The scuttlebutt is that they want us back to work by May 4. The other boss would like it to be May 18. Obviously, of the two, I’d rather have May 18. But I really don’t think either is a safe bet. Even with masks there’s no real way to do social distancing in my tiny office. I know they need the income for the practice but I’m not sure it’s the right thing to do.

On Saturday or Sunday, I thought maybe I’d get around to waxing Lion this week. At that point, I didn’t feel yucky and he didn’t have a doctor’s appointment. I know after tomorrow neither of us are going anywhere so there’s no problem with pushing it off till Friday or the weekend or next week. I just want it on the record that I had the plan. It was me. Lion wasn’t nagging me. I know he wants it done. He’s mentioned it, but it was my plan. And then it went to hell like most of my other plans.

Today I’ll see if I can remain upright for more of the day. Maybe Lion will get some action during the day. If I can figure where I put his panties, maybe he’ll be wearing them this afternoon. Time to get motivated.
