Today has gone along pretty well, I think. I’m still yawning all the time and feel like I just want to go back to bed but other than that things are pretty good.
I forgot to take my medication this morning. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever done that. It’s weird that I forgot, too – I have one of those pill organizers that’s broken up into morning, afternoon, evening, and bedtime for each day of the week and it sits on the dining room table right in front of me when I sit down for breakfast. I must’ve moved it out of the way. I realized that I’d forgotten to take them at supper and then took the venlafaxine but left the rest out.
As I’m typing this, I think that may have been a mistake. I can feel myself waking up and becoming more alert – not something I want as the day comes to a close. I don’t know if it’s real or psychosomatic but I really don’t want to be up all night so I just took my evening medication and hopefully the quetiapine and zopiclone will still help me sleep.
Okay, so other than that, things are pretty good. My appointment with Dr C went well this morning. We finished going over the EMDR prep and will get into it next week. I’m both looking forward to it and kind of dreading it at the same time. I hope it goes well.
When I got home, I took a nap and then went downstairs to putter for a while. I didn’t accomplish all that much but it felt good to be moving around. I still amaze myself with how much electronics stuff I’ve forgotten. It’ll be fun to get back into it I think.
J got home from work at the usual time and we had a good chat before we went to make supper. Since it’s been so hot out we’ve been trying to keep from using the oven or boiling lots of water so we made what I call Beefy Browns. Basically, you fry up some of those little cubed hash brown potatoes, throw in some mushrooms, some onion powder, some shredded cheese, some hot sauce, and then enough beef broth to get all the hash browns wet. They soak up the broth quite quickly and once that happens, they’re done. Are they good for you? Probably not. They’re easy to make, though, and everything is done in one pan.
While I was puttering in the laboratory last night I came across a picture from 2001 where J and I were at a Christmas Dinner and it’s obvious we’re enjoying ourselves. Since I usually end up in the kitchen or dining room when I’m in rough shape, I put the picture on the fridge so it’s easy to see and I don’t have to go looking for it.
I haven’t finished putting the motorcycle back together yet because it’s too hot out and I’m fat. Once the daytime temperature is back down around the 22C mark I’ll head out and do it. I know I keep saying it, too, but I really want to do some welding. Just a lot of practice beads to start out but then I want to build a cabinet. Don’t ask me why, it’s just something that’s been on my list for a long time.
But yeah, I’m probably sitting around a seven or so. Not too bad.
