On the Upswing

I knew I was getting better when upon waking up this morning, my first urge was to do the laundry.

In fact, I have finished three loads and am now washing the fourth-which contain, most importantly of all, my sheets-meaning that I will not be reinfecting myself when I go to bed tonight.

Actually I think one of my favorite things to do is snuggle under freshly washed sheets. There’s something about clean crisp sheets that just invites a good night’s sleep.

Hmmmmm…. I am just warm and fuzzy thinking about it!

Last night was a bit of a bummer-as you may remember from yesterday’s entry, I got a lot of sleep during the day. So later in the evening I woke up and decided I wanted to read a book. Turned on the light and *pop* the bulb burned out. I was back in the dark. It’s a halogen light and I have no idea where spare bulbs are, much less how to change one, so I put on the iPod and listened to a Podcast or two before falling back asleep.

I did manage to escape the flat today-I went for a walk downtown-which was busy-and went straight to the Residenz-Cafe for a salad. From there I returned to the flat and took another nap. It had exhausted me.

Beyond that, I’ve managed to put together a few more notes for my upcoming trip. I figured out which tram to take from the main train station in Bratislava to reach the hotel where Mateo and I will be staying.

It’s 7pm, and I’m thinking about taking a walk that will put me to sleep-but I need to wait for the dryer to finish working it’s magic first.
