  * up 7:40 (radio); drugs, nose, teeth; coffee, C
  * started clearing bedroom shelves to install new standards
  & mic stand + cup-holder in LR next to blue chair
    I don't normally like the weighted-base ones, but they have a nice small
    footprint for limited-space applications.  Could probably use another.
  * One set of shelf standards up, and 3 shelves installed.
  & 4' 1x8 shelf installed on top.  Holds the CalHist set and leaves space for
    the tallest books.  Moved atlases from office accordingly.
  * walk: ~1:20 with shopping at Zannotto's.
    <- aha: it's somewhat liberating to know that not everything is going to
       get done.
  * valerian (tea?) sleep aid ->

Not as good as being there to help, but good. </p> <p> The main thing was working on the SE corner of the bedroom. The goal is to replace the old shelf standards and brackets with Elfa, and add a couple of shelves to the South wall. I got the South wall done, and three shelves cleared on the East wall (leaving two more) A lot of sorting and recycling happened at the same time. </p> <p> I went out for a walk (including some grocery shopping). The major insight was noticing how liberating it was to know that a lot of things simply <em>are not going to get done.</em> The more essential stuff still has to happen, but... </p> <p> I bought some <a href="http://www.celestialseasonings.com/products/detail.html/wellness-teas/sleepytime-extra" >Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Extra</a> tea along with the other things; it turned out to be useful when I had trouble getting back to sleep at 3am. </p> <p> I ended the day with some singing (at Colleen's request): I sang "Gentle Arms of Eden" and "Where the Heart Is" for Marty, then Naomi asked me to call her and sing something, and Colleen suggested "The Mary Ellen Carter". Fun! </p>
