Have had a permanent headache for the last 5 or 6 days. Thus making me quite miserable. But I am muddling thru life without thinking about much of anything. The headache is making my “not worry” about it philosophy easy to follow. Thank the gods there is Tylenol (and I can take it). Not supposed to take ibuprofen anymore, or any other pain reliever, so Tylenol for the win.
My mom, being the sweet soul that she is, went to the dollar store the day before she left to get my Tylenol. She was gone quite a while, especially considering the dollar store is only a block away. But anyway, when she got back she had Tylenol Cold & Flu, Tylenol Sinus Severe, Tyenol PM, and Acetaminophen PM. You may have noticed the lack of just Tylenol on that list. Because of my Hashimoto’s Disease (bad thyroid) I am not supposed to take any otc antihistamines, which rules out cold & flu and severe sinus. And I didn’t want to sleep more, so the PM stuff was out of the question too. But my head was hurting, so I popped a couple of the Cold & Flu daytime pills. It worked, but my doctor would have been yelling at me.
Teresa brought me home a HUGE bottle of Acetaminophen the day mom left.
Well, like I said I have had this headache for a while. Teresa said here take one of these caffeine pills, it’ll get rid of your headache and it did. It also kept me awake for 24+ hours. Teresa, finding out I was awake for so long suggested I take a Tylenol PM. OK, I read the package, it’s all good. An hour later, I laid down to try to fall asleep. She says I slept for a couple hours, but the dreams I had were tripping. I just remember being thankful for waking up. I will NEVER take Tylenol PM again, no matter how desperately I need sleep.
So, if the headache is still around in a couple days, I will call my PA, Chris. I got a bunch of bloodwork type tests that I am months late for. Heh, he’d be happy to see me. Yeah, I have had bad long term headaches before, there has never been a cause, they have always just went away. I seriously doubt there is a cause now.
Since my main present I got months ago (my new latop), Christmas was kinda light in the gift department for me. Oh don’t get me wrong, I got a couple things, but not a bunch like normal. Teresa made out good though, a Nintendo Switch, A new Office Chair, she will be getting 2 poster sized wall hangings (one of Pucky, one of Mojo), as soon as she decides which photos she wants to use. She also got PJs and some Amazon gift cards.
The sweet & sour pork turned out phenomenal. Teresa is such a great cook. We used green and red peppers to give it the Christmasy look. lol.
If I was a betting man, I would bet that Friday night D&D will be cancelled again this week. Just thinking the Friday before New Years, yeah, if I had a life, I wouldn’t be around either. It’s Tuesday now, I bet we will get notice on Thursday there will be now game Friday. Yup, that is my prediction.
Barring anything horrible happening, my game starts in 1 week. Yup next Tuesday, my new D&D game over mumble begins. As of right now, I still don’t know if one of my players is going to be able to play (new job). But even if he can’t, it’s all good, 5 players instead of 6, it’s doable.
Been watching “the Last Airbender” on DVD with Teresa and I am actually really enjoying it. I seem to remember a movie about it that sucked. But the cartoon is actually pretty good.
Oh yeah, my chili turned out wonderful. I hadn’t made it in a long time and it ended up not quite tasting right, so obviously I forgot to add something… Teresa swooped in and saved the day. Now I have leftovers for a while, and it just tastes better day after day. The secret is using steak instead of hamburger. Gives it a different texture and a slightly different flavor profile.
Well, Christmas came and went. It ended up hitting -1 degree last night. I think it’s 4 today. I want to move so bad. I know exactly where I want to go. It just is never gonna happen. I am stuck in FREEZING cold, the SWELTERING hot Iowa. I complain about Iowa heat during the summer too.
I hope, for those of you who celebrate a winter holiday, that yours was great.
