Ugh. It's like, I wanna write but I'm so uncomfortable in my skin that I haven't been able to sit still. This eczema (or whatever) is worsening. I have to wear gloves when I work with the dogs. I'm on antibiotics and anti-itch stuff. This is round one of attacks. Let's hope it works. If not, we're ready for round two.
The antibiotics make me sleepy. But I have to push through it, since I take them four times a day. Four more days to go. [adding yogurt and probiotics to the shopping list.]
My crushed finger is less painful. Still numb and the nail is a lovely shade of plumb. I'm considering looking for the matching nail polish.
I'm sporting a farmer's tan. I shouldn't be tan at all but it's nearly impossible to stay out of the sun when I work outside. This is a challenge. I bought like a hundred spf sunscreen in hopes of blocking those evil rays. I need more goofy big-rimmed sunblocking hats.
It's taken me 20 minutes just to get to this point of the entry. I'm that fidgety. Pain and discomfort really take a toll on the psyche.
It's taken me another 5 minutes to get here.
I dunno. I feel out of sorts as it is. My room is still in disarray. Actually, the whole apartment is. But we were blessed to have Gigi and Robbie here over the weekend to help unload stuff and empty boxes. It's unanimous - the bathroom is the funnest room in the apartment.
I found the shades I want in my room and the living room. I know they're temporary. But they're inexpensive and they can be used permanently. So that's what I shall do. Next purchase after that: curtains. Geez, this whole domestic thing is expensive. And lots of work. I can't really afford this lifestyle. You know, buying new things and stuff.
I'm saving lots of money on morning coffee and take-out. That's a plus.
What else? Oh god, none of this is cohesive. I just changed a load of laundry from the washer to the dryer and poured my second half-cup of coffee. I'm starting to fade from my morning dose of antibiotics. Hopefully, being out with the dogs will liven me up a bit.
I do feel a little more like myself today though. It's been such a ride. I slept off and on from the moment I got home till about 8pm last night. I kept trying to get up because there's so much to do, but I just couldn't. I found a second wind after watching a DVD that bored Andi to sleep. I did a tiny bit of organizing in my room at midnight. I watched another DVD in bed and finally fell asleep just after 3am. So why did I get up at 8:30? Oh right, shower, laundry, coffee, writing. I so need a nap right now.
Off to walk doggies.
Hey, what's going on with everyone? I've been skimming J-Land but I'm sure I'm missing a lot. Anything new?
