Song: “A Little Respect” by Erasure
This is going to be a very short post – I’m very tired and my medications are making it hard for me to do things like type accurately and keep my eyes pointed where I want them to.
Today was a reasonable day. I woke up worrying four or five times last night but was able to calm down and get myself back to sleep without taking too much time.
I went for my walk today, took my normal path, and used the opportunity to drop off a cheque for the lawn service company that dethatched and aerated our lawn. They did a really good job this year, and the lawn really needed it – I wasn’t able to trim the lawn or rake the leaves last fall so things were in rough shape.
I’ve picked my next exposure target: the toaster. The idea being I make some toast, unplug it, and then stay away from it for as long as it takes for my anxiety to fall to half of what it was at its peak. I suppose I could just turn it on and then turn it off, too, but fortunately I like toast a lot so it shouldn’t be much of a problem.
Got news from my mother-in-law that she has already been to the phone place and is now using the Galaxy S4. I hope that she finds it useful and doesn’t experience any frustration. The cool thing now is I can text her pictures and little videos that she couldn’t get on her old phone.
I was hoping to make it a little further and write more but I’m spending more time trying to get my eyes looking in the right direction than I am typing. I think I have to head toward bed.
