Song: Theme from Crazy Comets (Commodore 64 game) by Rob Hubbard
Thursday night was another decent sleep. I woke up feeling anxious a few times but none of them was because of a nightmare and I was able to get back to sleep reasonably quickly. I was feeling pretty anxious and discouraged when I went to bed, though, and J took some time to give me a pep talk, which helped quite a bit.
I woke up Friday morning feeling anxious again and immediately started winding myself up. My exercises didn’t go very well again and the ERP and time I spent outside didn’t help. FA was coming over so I broke down and took a lorazepam to help me calm down.
FA arrived around noon and brought burritos again, which were particularly good. I have yet to have a bad one from that place (or even a so-so one) but sometimes they’re fantastic instead of excellent.
We talked while we ate and had a good conversation. That’s something that I enjoy about talking with FA – you never know where the conversation will go, and it’s always interesting.
After we were done, we played a few games of Carcassonne, of which I think I squeaked by with one single point win. FA left it here when she left so J and I could give it a try. It’s a pretty good game – different than the type of games that I’m used to, like Monopoly or Scrabble or Trouble.
After a while, we switched over to playing some Sequence. I had a little more luck there, winning a couple of games but FA won most of them by far. I like Sequence, there’s a bit of strategy to it but if you’ve got terrible cards there’s not much you can do.
I remember hearing on the radio that it was 1:55PM, but the next thing we realized was that it was 4:30 and FA had to head home. The afternoon flew by, but it was fun and I had a good time. I hope FA did, too.
I did some more ERP with the garage door after she left, and J got home around 6:30. We had supper (small pizzas on flatbread) and had a good chat about how our days had gone. Between hanging out with FA and J getting home, I felt a lot better than I did when I got up.
I did one more round of ERP in the evening but it didn’t go well at all.
J and I watched an episode of Columbo which I found to be a little over the top but it was alright. Halfway through I started to get tired, and by the time the episode finished I was ready for bed. I had planned to write a blog entry when the episode was done but I couldn’t keep my eyes open.
Today (Saturday), I’ve been puttering around the house a bit and have a load of laundry in the wash right now. I need to get outside again but I really, really don’t feel like it.
