Song: “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen
I had some difficulties last night after I posted – I got quite anxious and was having trouble keeping it under control. I ended up taking a PRN lorazepam to help me calm down.
I slept well, though, and felt pretty good when I finally got up.
I spent the morning puttering around the house and doing some more tidying up. Again, it felt good to be busy. The excess anxiety from last night was gone, thank goodness.
At about 2PM FA arrived. She came in and we had a good chat for a little while and then headed off to the hardware store. We had coupons that would save $15 if we spent $75 so we took our time going through the store, trying to find things that were justifiably useful enough to buy (which usually isn’t a problem at that store). They have a really neat surplus area where you can find all kinds of neat stuff and some pretty ratty junk, too.
It was good to hang out with FA. I appreciate that she’s my friend and doesn’t judge or expect me to be anything other than I am. She’s a really good friend and I have fun doing stuff with her.
As we were doing our second run-through of the store, we ran into J, who just happened to be in the same store looking for a garden hose hanger. The three of us chatted away as we walked through the store toward the cashiers and had a couple of laughs.
FA had some other business to get to so when we got back to the house we said goodbye and she left. J and I then sat down and talked about our days and I showed her what I’d bought. We had supper and then sat in the living room for a while. I’m pretty tired right now – I’m not used to spending that much time wandering around – but it’s a good tired. One of those I-think-I’m-going-to-sleep-really-well-tonight kinds of tired.
This evening I think J and I are going to watch a couple more episodes of Community (we’re getting close to the end now) and maybe listen to a record or two.
J leaves tomorrow morning and I need to plan what I’m going to do while she’s gone. It shouldn’t be too difficult – I’ve got a lot of things that I’d like to do.
