What do I do next?

Still waiting for the word from the doctor about when "no better, but no worse" becomes a cause for concern.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, laundry, kittens to bottle feed (sent one away to be watched for the weekend while we were at the hotel, came back to 3 of them), meals to cook, lessons to teach.

When did tired go from being an occasional thing to a chronic state of being?
