~For the past few days I have had this horrible sensation in my head. It’s like someone is driving a stake through the top of my skull. I’m ready for it to stop now. It’s a very localized pain that is about ¼ inch in diameter. The odd thing is that the spot is really warm to the touch. I’ve had this before in other places on my head & back. I have wondered if this is the beast eating away at that spot. I’ve mentioned it to the doctor before and he thought it was sort of crazy. He says that demyelination doesn’t cause pain. I don’t understand how that can be though. I mean, it’s tissue that is being destroyed. Following logic, tissue destruction in other areas of the body can be felt so why not on the nerves? At any rate, I am ready for it to go away.
~I joined the public library yesterday. I love being able to go read, browse, bring books home… I spent about an hour there just looking around. The branch closest to my home is rather small but that’s okay. They have good books there & they can request books from the other branches if there’s something I want that’s not shelved there. I like that it’s basically right around the corner from home.
~I went to check on the pony yesterday as well. He seemed to be the same. I woke him up when I got there … he was standing under the window sleeping. His personality is so much calmer than he used to be. I enjoy him so much more now because he likes to be pet & talked to. Before he would just turn his nose up and prance around. He was such the stud! He still is but for some reason he doesn’t feel the need to present his studliness or announce his presence to all the neighbors in his barnhood. Anyway, he appeared to be sort of lethargic to me and I was starting to get a bit concerned. I checked around with his neighbors… they were all sort of lethargic. It would seem it was time for the morning nap. They had all had their breakfast, hay & water so it was nap time. Funny how all living things end up with some sort of routine in their day.
~If you ever decide you want to participate in human smuggling… well, this wouldn’t be the way to do it:
~Coach is getting home earlier each evening now. It’s kind of nice to have him around more. They don’t have any games this week which means no practice Friday and no work on Sunday. It’s hard to believe football season is about over. They have only one more game on the 9th & that’s it for this bang-up inaugural season. Next year will be better.
~On today’s agenda I have grocery shopping and a few loads of laundry. I’d like to get a few things organized in the tin can but with this ice pick drilling into my head, I don’t know if that’s going to happen or not. The food/clothes thing is sort of a priority so I’ll tackle those first & see what’s left in the gumption department afterwards.
~Our high today is 90 degrees. I knew the cool wouldn’t last. Next week we have a cool front… 88 during the day & 60 at night. Oh boy.
