Got To Get To Bed

Song: “At The Hop” by Richard Maltby And His Orchestra

Nightmares: 1?

Okay, this is going to be a pretty short post – it’s late and I have an appointment with Dr C in the morning.

Today went pretty well. I spent some time writing and also worked on the thing for DA. I need to find a bigger diameter pipe but I think I have some in the garage. One other downside is that the smoke detector that I’ve been playing with needs two 9V batteries to run. I have another one around somewhere that I’m pretty sure runs on one – I should switch to that one. Oh, and soldering a wire to a piece of tinfoil is harder and much stinkier than I thought it would be. Stupid YouTube videos making it look so easy, pfft…

I didn’t go for my walk today because it’s been raining on and off. On the plus side, the sun came out a couple of times today and it was really quite nice when it did.

I have successfully stuck to my plan of not doing my regular morning exercises. I haven’t been constantly thinking about them or yearning to do them. I do miss them, though – the mindfulness, meditation, and dedicated worry time definitely make a difference for the rest of the day. I am looking forward to discussing this with Dr C at my appointment tomorrow.

My mom called today and told me that she has noticed some things in the way that I talk on the phone that remind her of how I used to be and she thinks it’s a good sign. I appreciate her mentioning that stuff because I see myself day after day and sometimes don’t notice if things are changing at all.

My sister called today too and we had a good talk. I even got the chance to say hello to my two nephews. The younger one is doing a project involving leaves and the older one is looking forward to getting together with his friend. I very rarely see my nephews (which is my fault) and have only talked to them on the phone a couple of times so it was really nice. Maybe I’ll get a chance to say hi again next week. That would be good.

Tomorrow is my next Dr C appointment. I am looking forward to talking to her about how not doing my exercises went, as well as figuring out the steps ahead. With winter on its way (oh how it pains me to say that), I really need to be able to get out of the house and do some errands. Doesn’t have to be too far, but J does pretty much everything now and I’d really like to be able to do something to help. I just checked the weather and it’s supposed to be 8C and raining tomorrow. Might be a bit of a tough call for shorts, but I’m going to do it.

Stay safe.
