Hello hello! I got 5 hours of sleep last night, went to my acupuncture appointment, and drank oodles of tea, and I think I might, maybe, be coming out the other side. Except now I’ve written that down and it is jinxed and I will be sicker than ever tomorrow.
Went to the library across the street from the acupuncture office and wandered around a little bit getting my head back on my shoulders, and then drove home. I even managed to get gas on the way home!
Back home, watched TV with my sister over the phone for a bit and drank lots and lots of ginger tea. Then had a nice dinner of matzo ball soup (it’s like broth and crackers combined! My two favorite sick foods), and set up a trial subscription to BritBox so I can watch as many soothing BBC period pieces as I want.
And now I am all settled in for the night in my sick bed. You know the best part about having a one bedroom? Not sleeping in the bedroom sometimes. I have the sofa all made up and I can get fresh tea from the stove and watch my BBC on the TV and then roll over and sleep for a few hours as needed. I did the same thing in my studio, but then it felt like I was being messy and lazy, now it’s an adventure.
