I had every intention of playing with Lion early yesterday. I figured I didn’t have to work so I wouldn’t be as tired or achy. Ha! I discovered that I feel okay if I’m not moving around much. I think I stir up the crazy in my blood when I’m up and about doing things. And for some reason, I was exhausted yesterday. It boiled down to not being a question of playing with Lion early. I couldn’t do it at all. He’s been very patient during my meltdown.
Apparently my body just decided it was lights out and I fell asleep before doing Lion’s eye drops. I woke up just as he did the last of them and turned out the lights. I hadn’t brushed my teeth so I went to do that. I figured it was entirely possible that I would wake up completely and not be able to get back to sleep. I needn’t have worried. I was out in no time. I woke up just before 6:30 and decided I could wait for the alarm to go off before I went to pee. The next thing I knew, it was 8 and the dog was staring at me to take her out.
Lion wondered how I feel today. I haven’t done much to stir the crazy up yet. I’m glad I got a lot of sleep. I joked that I don’t take his big cat (Lion, get it?) naps so every once in a while I make up for it with a long snooze. Once I start doing the laundry and other chores, I’m sure I’ll feel a little yucky, but maybe the worst is over. I did take the first dose of the anxiety drug again, but I don’t think that will make me feel better right away. I also don’t think it had anything to do with my sleeping a lot.
My plan is to ease back into normalcy. Let’s see how I feel before I commit to anything specific. If I don’t hurt when I snuggle with him, maybe I can move on to playing with my weenie more seriously. And if that doesn’t kill me, we see about some oral attention. My mind is willing. Let’s see if the body can hold up its end of the bargain.
[Lion — Mrs. Lion also mentioned supervised masturbation. That’s always a possibility in a pinch.]
[Mrs. Lion — Boy! He went from being completely against supervised masturbation to mentioning it every chance he gets.]
