Last night I slept 6 hours, which is close to a record the last 6 weeks. It has been exactly 6 weeks since I crashed and fractured my skull. Man, 6 weeks seems like a long time ago, but for me, it doesn’t seem that long. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or bad thing. All I know is that I that my advice is to try to keep your skull not broken. I’ve broken a lot of bones in my life and so far, the skull wins as the worst.
I have been taking melatonin before going to bed, but skipped it last night. I’m not much into pills on a constant basis. Maybe the tryptophan from the turkey yesterday gave me some extra z’s? Whatever the reason, I’m slowly getting longer nights, which makes me feel better.
I have physical therapy in about an hour. Gonna try to get realigned to be way less dizzy. I did it on Wednesday and it worked great. That was for my right ear. Now the left.
I’ve never done much on black friday. I don’t really shop much, so it isn’t that interesting to me. Shopping traffic is kind of foreign to me. I usually get it the day before Christmas, but that is because of putting off Christmas shopping until last minute.
Thanksgiving dinner was great yesterday. Stacie brought an organic turkey, whatever that is, and lots of great fruits and such. Trudi made cranberry sauce and other side dishes too. The only extra diner was Catherine’s mom. I went over and picked her up. I like her alot, so it was super nice seeing her. Obviously, I haven’t been very social the last 6 weeks.
There is a group ride here this afternoon. I’m still only riding inside, so I can’t go. I’m supposed to wait until most if my symptoms are pretty much done before I venture out. I could, for sure, ride outside now, but that probably isn’t the prudent thing to do. I’m not going to be riding on any road that has any snow, ice, or even moisture on it for a while. It isn’t a good idea to hit your head twice very close together. The 2nd time is way worse than the 1st. I can’t imagine that and am going to try to avoid experiencing that if at all possible.
Okay, I have to get going. There are a couple cross races on the internet this weekend. A World Cup tomorrow, which will be fun to watch. Crazy it is nearly December. I hope this turns into a short winter. I can’t see any upside to winter and head healing. And it really hasn’t started yet.
