Song: “Crocodile Rock” by Elton John
I had a good sleep last night. No nightmares that I can remember and I slept quite well. I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to do stuff.
I spent today puttering around the house, listening to music, and having a good time. I didn’t accomplish a whole lot but it felt good to be wandering around the house and keeping busy. I did my exercises and when I was doing my mindfulness work, it was a lot easier to relax than usual.
Today was my Dr W appointment, and it went quite well. It feels good to be able to walk in and say, “I’m actually feeling pretty good today.” Since I’m feeling pretty good, we decided against making any medication changes, and I’m fine with that. I’m still taking a lot of medication but I don’t mind since it’s keeping me out of the hospital. Dr W also cautioned me to expect a dip in my mood at some point because everyone on the planet has good and bad days. That reminded me of the graph that Dr C drew for me a long time ago:
Dr W was also happy to hear about my most recent motorcycling adventure. He said that getting out and doing things is the important thing. Even if it doesn’t go perfectly, it’s way better than not doing it at all.
This evening, J and I had supper and then went to give the kitchen a good cleaning. We kept seeing these little tiny beetles and were worried they were coming in from the outside and finding things to eat in the kitchen. We cleaned it from top to bottom and didn’t find any beetle huts… until we checked the bag of bird seed that sat under the island. Without going into it any further, I’m just going to say that we’re pretty sure that’s where they were coming from. Bleurgh. On the upside, it was an easy fix and the kitchen is clean enough to eat off any surface you want.
Tonight, we’re probably going to watch an episode of Dead Like Me. Last night we watched Mr and Mrs Smith – J found it in the bargain bin at Walmart and it was much better than we were expecting. Ridiculous, but entertaining.
I’m hoping for no nightmares again tonight and another good day tomorrow. I have my Dr P appointment tomorrow, too.
