When I write here, I need to start focusing more on what I did, rather than what I’m gonna do… ‘cuz my plans for “what I’m gonna do” rarely go as planned. 😏 I didn’t get my lazy day yesterday, since I didn’t sleep the night before and ended up finally falling asleep at 7pm – after 36 hours of awake time. 😯 I think that doing doctor / medical research all day on Saturday just kept my brain spinning… but I did make it to Lancaster on Sunday to see Dad and Mom like I had planned. 👍🏻 But yeah, this 12-36-12 / asleep-awake-asleep thing isn’t gonna work for me.
Except for a few things, I’ll probably leave it in neutral for most of the day today. That way I’ll maybe get that lazy day that the weekend owes me. 🙂🤷🏻♂️ I don’t think it’ll make that much difference to all my “stuff” if I take a knee for the day.
I got a message yesterday that Dad had to go to the hospital and that they were gonna keep him to check on some things, but since my sleep was all screwed up I decided that I’d just go to bed early last night and head in this morning to see what was up… but of course my brain couldn’t let it be that simple. 😒
To bed at midnight, asleep for maybe 15 minutes, then awake through 1am… 2am… asleep for 30 minutes, awake at 3am… all the way through to 7am, when I finally fell asleep for a whopping45 minutes. 😑 I’ve been up since then. And it’s going on 9pm now. I know, that’s a lot of numbers, but it’s the same old shit – I knew I absolutely had to go to sleep so that I could get up early, which then made it impossible for me to go to sleep so that I could get up early. 🙄
Heh… then I was worried that I would fall asleep and end up sleeping for 10 hours or something, and Dad would think I was just pissing my day away doing something else. My brain is so much fun sometimes.
I did finally drag my tired ass out of the house and into town in the early afternoon, and even though he’s definitely not feeling great, it sounds like he’s on the path to recovery, so that was good news. 🙂 It actually made me feel a lot better, despite feeling sleep deprived and a little sick myself, and I think that’s what gave me the boost that’s kept me going into the evening. 🤷🏻♂️
I gotta believe I’m gonna sleep at least okay tonight… right? 🤞🏻
Not stoked that it’s 1:30a and I’m not even remotely tired… but it’s probably because I ended up having a pretty decent day out of the house, so my brain is still working to process it all. 🤷🏻♂️ That’s my guess anyway, because I got up stinkin’ early and I should be sacked out by now. Meh… it was nice to have a non-crap day for a change though.
My first intended stop was Great Clips, but I drove by and noticed that my cousin’s car wasn’t there – and I wasn’t ready to make small talk with some random chick as she cut my hair. 🤨 I should have texted her first, but whatever… I’ll get there eventually. After that I hit a couple of thrift stores and came away with a whole lot of nothin’ despite my looking. I’ve been having a dry spell… not only with game or collectible/sell-able stuff, but even with clothes.
Having finished my overnight cat-sitting duties, I returned the kitties to their home. They’re not the biggest fan of car travel, and they were hollering and letting me know it as we drove, but all’s well that end’s well. I also stopped off at Toys R Us, a place I haven’t been for easily a decade, because I wanted to pick up one of the Tiny Arcade machines out of curiosity. (I want them all… heh) It’s weird… same building/location as when I was a kid, but totally different inside with zero familiarity. Impressive selection though.
I’ve been awake for about 27 hours now… heh… couldn’t fall asleep no matter how hard I tried. Not in the bedroom, not in the recliner, not with the TV on, not with the TV off, not with the ceiling fan on, etc. 😏 At least I’ve crossed some weird barrier now and I’m more slap-happy than annoyed by it.
But wait, it doesn’t stop there. 🙄 Moments ago I finally passed that goddamned kidney stone. 😅 If anyone would have been walking outside near my bathroom window, they’d have definitely heard me sing a song of surprise. I mean, I knew I had some kidney stuff going on, but the pain lightened up a couple days ago – but that’s apparently because it was a little further down the highway and looking for its exit. 😖 Heh… I know this is a little TMI, but whatever… it’s just a stone.
I’m still not holding my breath though. I wouldn’t put it past my one kidney to make a stone and send it on its journey, only for the other kidney to get jealous and decide to do the same. 😏 But no, don’t get it twisted… ejecting it from your body isn’t the problem, whether you’re male or female – it’s when it’s leaving your kidney, with its jagged little asshole shard edges tearing shit up along the way… that’s what’ll have you balled up on the floor.
