After my mood crash yesterday, today I bounced back and am in a pretty good mood. Yeah, still got medical crap weighing heavyish on me, but what the hell, nothing can be done about it now so quit being upset about it. Just live.
I didn’t sleep well last night, I tried to sleep without Ambien and it was kind of a disaster. I had an Ambien next to the bed to take, but I want to get off it again. Stress might just be keeping me from sleeping though, so I might need the help. So tonight I will take an Ambien. — I did manage to nap twice this morning. I haven’t been able to nap in ages. It felt so good falling back asleep not once but twice. Yeah buddy, I used to be the king of naps. Now, not so much.
At my low point I weight 183 pounds. As of today, I weigh 200.8 pounds. Significance is I have managed to put on weight, now the question is can I keep it from getting out of hand again and I don’t balloon up to 234.5 again. I’d like to stay around 200 pounds, but it’s hard. Another round of chemo might help though. Chemo is notorious for lost weight. So, I should be good for a while.
I started working on my book again. The book I started back before the transplant. I reread the first 12 chapters and thought they were good. I was surprised. So I wrote chapter 13 last night, not as happy with it, gonna rework it. Hope to knock out a chapter a day around my not so busy schedule. But to read it and like it, that’s cool.
Somebody sent me a pair of Rayban sunglasses. I don’t know who. The thought is appreciated, but I can’t see without my prescription glasses, so I will never wear these nice sunglasses.
Teresa is going to Wal-Mart after work. Normally we have Panda Express for dinner after her Wal-Mart trips. However, I had Chinese for dinner last night, breakfast this morning, and lunch this afternoon. I am Chinese burned out. So the great discussion of where she should go to get dinner to bring home is happening right now. I voted for Applebee’s. We haven’t had it in quite a while. I have a back up suggestion if she shoots Applebee’s down. Taste of New York Pizza. New York style pizza. But then she would have to get out of the car in the cold. I don’t want her to have to do that. I’ll come up with a third choice.
Applebee’s got shot down. Pitched Taste of New York. Waiting for response.
Taste of New York for the win. Got her with the Calzones. Yeah, buddy.
Pucky and Mojo are great nap buddies for the most part. They find a spot to lay and fall asleep faster than I do. And they don’t move much at all. An occasional twitch or stretch is all. I sometimes have to fight with Pucky over where he is gonna sleep vs where I am gonna sleep, but I usually win so its all good.
