I don’t like not really posting something, but my mind is a blob right now. I’m better today though. I’m not as sick in my stomach as I was yesterday. And my leg hurts less. So progress is always good. My routine is jacked. Maybe not jacked, but really different than before the broken hip. I’m sleeping from 10 to 4 ish now, then awake until 6 or so, and then back to sleep on the couch, usually, for an hour, before hobbling back to bed somewhere after 7. If I’m lucky I can sleep another hour or so then.
I’m usually waking up at 4 because of a stomach ache. Cinnamon Raisin toast and hot tea seems to make it feel better. I like both those a lot, so maybe that is why. I haven’t drank any coffee at all this week. I had some the day I got out of the hospital, last Wednesday, but not since then. Maybe that was the splitting headache I had a couple mornings ago, I don’t know. I don’t feel a craving for it for sure. Same with wine. I haven’t had any wine since last Wednesday and don’t miss it at all. Guess your body knows what to consume when things go awry.
I’ve been listening to the BBC on NPR from 4 on. Then Morning Edition. Morning Edition gets repeated at 8, so I’ve already heard it by then. The BBC is way more interesting to me than our NPR news. I’m not sure why that is. Maybe it is just more worldly.
I’ve been sitting some on the back porch, before the sun comes up and listening. It seems like the birds all wake up in the same order every morning. It always seems way too early for them to start, but then the sun starts to rise. They always sound so chipper, so happy to be alive, it makes me feel better. I really enjoy it, so there are always these small, ancillary upsides to what seems bad. You just have to look for them.
Okay, that’s pretty much my morning schedule. The rest of the day is way less constant. Sleeping on and off, a little TV, yesterday morning I watched the live feed from the Apple World Wide Developers Conference. I realized how little I use the functions of the Apple products I own. I doubt many of us do much.
Maybe today I can get out a little. It is supposed to thunderstorm tonight. That is always good. Funny how little of things you look forward to when your down and out. That’s about it for now.
