Other stuff happened today, but I was too dazed to understand much of it. My brother-in-law managed to put together the nightstand I bought, and it has been installed next to the bed, which means I can move the chair I was using as a night stand over to the other side of the bed, where I had been using an unopened, 12-roll package of paper towels as a perch for a box of tissues and the controls for the electric blanket. Just in time, too, since I used up the last of my other paper towels in the flood, and really need to open that 12-pack. The drawer in the new nightstand will also serve as a place to keep various important papers and such, so I'll not only have more space on my kitchen table but will also be able to find things when I need them, without disarranging a bunch of other stuff.
I also managed to get out and buy a box of donuts, too, so I can return to my usual morning (or whenever I wake up) ritual tomorrow. Performing tasks as complex as making toast and buttering it are beyond my capacity for the first hour or so after I wake up. It's a wonder I even get the tea made that time of day.
Whoa, nodded off in my chair. for half an hour. Lucky I didn't fall out. I'd best go outside and get some fresh air for a while.
