The Weekend Went By Way Too Fast

Song: “Mr. Blue Sky” by ELO

Mood: 6

Nightmares: 0

This weekend flew by – I have no idea where most of it went. I didn’t accomplish as much as I’d hoped, but some stuff around the house got done.

I didn’t sleep very well. I don’t remember having any nightmares but I’m waking up a lot, sometimes because I’m worried about something, sometimes for no reason at all. I should probably put a piece of paper by the bed so I can make a pencil scratch each time I wake up. Could be useful to know how many times I really wake up.

My exercises went much better today than they did yesterday. Yesterday I was fighting against sleep and couldn’t concentrate on what I was trying to do.

I did my stove exposure this weekend, and, for whatever reason, today was markedly better than it has been so far. J was home at the time, which makes everything easier, so I’m interested to see how it goes tomorrow.

I heard from my mom yesterday that my uncle was still in the hospital with his foot. No word yet on whether they’re going to have to amputate or how long he’s going to be in the hospital. I’ve got my fingers crossed that he’s going to be okay. I feel pretty bad for my mom. I wish there was something I could do to help.

I was browsing some Wikipedia articles yesterday evening and one of them brought to mind a former co-worker that I didn’t get along with (and, frankly, tried to avoid). Just for kicks, I looked up the name. Turns out they’re wanted by the police halfway around the world for some nasty stuff a year and a half ago. I kind of regret looking up the name – I’ve felt kind of ill since reading about it. I had hoped that it was someone else whose name just happened to match, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Part of me wonders if there was something I should have done years ago (this person was always… “odd”), while another part of me is relieved that I associated with that person as little as possible. Either way, it’s in the hands of the police, so that’s good.

J and I watched several episodes of Elementary, as well as Thor: The Dark World. We enjoy binge-watching shows because we’re a lot more likely to remember things that happened in earlier episodes or actors that show up in multiple episodes (Columbo was really good for that). We also unboxed, set up, and played a game of Carcassonne this evening.

Playing Carcassonne

J won. It wasn’t even close.

I’m heading back to re-do some of those blood tests on Tuesday, but so far tomorrow I don’t have anything going on. I’ll fit in my walk and more work with the stove, but beyond that I’m not sure. If I can focus enough, I’ll work on the quadcopter. The snow is melting quickly and there’s not much time left before the park across the street will be dry and perfect for flying.

Stay safe.
