Song: “Swords of a Thousand Men” by Tenpole Tudor
A nightmare (the one with the lifejackets) woke me up just once last night. After how the evening had gone, I was expecting the night to be a lot worse. Still, when I woke up this morning I felt like an old man, and it took a lot of effort to haul myself out of bed and get going.
J had the day off today so we talked for a little while over breakfast and then I went downstairs to do my exercises. They didn’t go that well and I was glad when I was done. I think I may have fallen asleep for part of it – I don’t remember falling asleep or waking up, but the hangy-down thing in the back of my throat was a little sore and that usually happens when I snore. But it could just be a coincidence.
J was on a bit of a cleaning binge today and did a lot of work in the basement, including an ungodly amount of laundry. I worked on the kitchen a bit and gathered up and took out the garbage, so between the two of us, the house looks not too bad. That’s good, because my mother-in-law is coming by tomorrow afternoon for a visit before she goes to a party and then over to her sister’s place to help out with some stuff.
For a number of reasons (most of which are probably pretty flimsy), I didn’t get a chance to do the stove exposure today, but I did get two entries down on the new sheets that Dr P gave me. I think he asked me to do four per week but since I check so much stuff I think I’ll be able to do at least one per day.
This evening, J and I watched Avengers: Age of Ultron to get ready for Thor: Ragnarok. I’ve heard a lot of good stuff about that movie and am looking forward to seeing it. Hopefully J is, too. We also watched another episode of Elementary, and I’m disappointed that Kitty Winter is not there.
I spoke with my mom this evening and my uncle is still in the hospital and awaiting surgery. I hope everything goes well and they get past all of the infected tissue and things heal up quickly. My parents have a bunch of renovations planned and have already started in on them like crazy people. The next time I see the place I will probably not recognize it.
I’ve been feeling anxious all day again today, and I’ve been jumpy and on edge, worrying that another panic attack is coming. Fortunately, that hasn’t happened yet and it’s just about time for bed. I can feel my nighttime medications working and once I’m done typing this out I’m going to head to bed. Hopefully I’ll sleep well and there won’t be any problems and I’ll wake up feeling better tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow may be the day that I get my hair cut. I have a little purpose-made hair trimmer and J has offered to run the machine. I think it’ll be best to leave it at the maximum height that it can cut so I’ll ideally have at least some hair left when it’s all done. Fortunately, I have a baseball cap that I can wear out into the world if things go very wrong.
I think J and I might watch Thor tomorrow evening. That would be great.
