Day 60 with the Overherd

Things are calm enough thus far that I seem to only have normal insomnia, rather than PTSD-driven insomnia. Easily solved with Ambien.

The Overherd seems most useful just nestled around me, both under and on top of the duvet. I still snuggle the Overcow. I guess I just like knowing they’re around, either by direct contact or light pressure.

I don’t remember my dreams, which must have been nice, crunchy bits.

I still plan to eat delicately. Although I’m not sure if TVP in sauces should be considered “delicately.” I’m pretty sure I was a perfectly happy omnivore before this week.

Ah well, today is mostly eating adventures. Mostly cooking; last night I really wanted to put something in a crockpot… but my kitchen is currently ill-equipped.

  1. I’m having a cooking weekend too! Mostly baking: muffins, my hardcore multigrain bread, fruit crisp, custard… It makes for a lot of dishes to wash, but then you have lots of food ready and don’t have to cook when you’re suddenly hungry.

  2. Hum, I really need to get cracking on the baking, but I forgot how hot the range gets after making 40 little rice pancakes for the week. Mabo tofu with TVP, need to make spaghetti sauce with TVP and then, of course, add spaghetti…

    Lots of dishes to do, but that’s what dishwashers are for. ^.^

  3. So the Overherd has been helping out for two months now. Congratulations! and I think, Many Happy Returns of the Day too. I hope that’s okay. I like how Lulu is working in that specialized niche you described, and the rest have sometimes specific roles, and sometimes cross-train.

    I’ve been reading up on how “transitional objects” are supposed to work, although what I’ve found is often very muddled with generalizations, for a thing that is so very particular and personal. Your issues are different from mine but it has certainly got me thinking. (Also reminded me to make a long overdue appointment with my own Dr Talk, which I had managed to entirely forget for a month.)

    The idea I caught from you for myself (and thank you) is that I could recruit the big stuffed bear that’s been hanging around here for my Business Manager, as I’ve been needing one forever and never managing to do it for myself, and he’s clearly not otherwise employed. Times being what they are and all. HIs references are excellent. I’ll write it up more on my LJ tomorrow and not take up your blog with it. But thanks.

      That’s very okay. Thank you.

      I think “portable friends” is a better term. ^.^ When I look at the Overherd I see little faces, often smiling (the Overcow is Very Serious Cow, but still friendly). It’s odd, perhaps, but I think faces make stuffed toys a little different from blankets.

      I’m glad this little series of posts has given you ideas.
