4:30 am – Wake up to the sound of wind and rain whipping around the house. Realize that I must be dehydrated because I actually stayed in bed all night. Go to the bathroom as a precautionary measure and go back to sleep.
5:00 am – Hear Ollie singing nonstop from the other room, hoping to be plied with cat treats. Stuff earplugs in.
6:30 am –Lidocaine patches come off.
7:00 am – Tim brings me Dunkin’ Donuts breakfast (I highly recommend the chorizo breakfast burrito in a bowl) before he goes back to work. Judging by the weather, it will be a busy day for him.
7:15 am – Eat breakfast and take pill pile.
8:45 am – Keep my PJs on but get ready for the day the rest of the way. This is definitely a PJ day.
10:00 am – My eyelids are drooping. Need a nap. The internet just went down in the house so I consider that affirmation that I should sleep a bit.
2:00 pm – And four hours later, she wakes up.
4:00 pm – Blog time. Have to finish this project. I’m going to be a psychic again and guess the evening will go as it usually does. Nothing like tempting fate.
6:30 pm – Drag out the case we have for all our pills so I can refill my weekly pill case (YES I have one of those).
7:00 pm – Tim puts Lidocaine pain patches on my back and shoulders.
7:10 pm – Pill time again.
7:30 pm – Going to try and stay up later tonight and get my sleep squared away.
And with that, my mini-diary is complete (minutiae and all). Here’s to a healthy November for everyone.
