I would make a very bad hermit. I’m going completely nuts in my house. I hope it has something to do with finally  feeling significantly better this evening. I’m off the codeine; I’ve been awake for 9 hours with only a very brief snooze; I even ran the dishwasher. I have high hopes for tomorrow-a short walk to the bookstore and maybe a coffee treat… and a nap- I’m not going to go all hog wild or anything. It will be nice to feel like the stairs are the gateway to nature and not an obstacle between the couch and bed.
