Transitioning back to my regular shift after a week on the 3:00 am - 11:30 am shift isn't easy. Doing so while still on the Prednisone the doctor prescribed for my post-wreck back pain is...frustrating. I go to sleep dizzy and wake up about 3:00 am, my mind racing. Between the drug and the lack of sleep, I'm clumsy. On the last full day of the stuff now, so it will pass, and at least the dose has been low enough that I haven't been too outspoken, but it's darned annoying.
I made Swedish pancakes this morning. Figured if I was going to be frustrated, I could at least get a treat out of it. Rannie Wu was getting underfoot and at one point, I looked down to realize she was sitting, watching me, with her tail in a saucer of olive oil I'd poured for her earlier. But it worked out; a lot of making those pancakes is letting them cook, which left time to scrub the olive-oiled tail of the Ancient Wu. --It's a title of respect, she's got awhile to go before she's ancient in years.
