Morning has broken...?
Monday, October 21, 2019
This actually isn’t this morning’s sunrise... as I am up at 2:30am, and the sun won’t rise for another 5 hours or so, lol. It is a sunrise out at my dad’s house. I haven’t been able to catch the really vivid sunrises. I either didn’t have my phone with me, or my hands were full on the mornings when the colors have been their most vibrant. Oh well. I have the memory stored away in my mind.
I am not surprised that I am up this early. I slept nearly 12 hours Saturday night. Yikes! It gave me a headache on Sunday. Too much sleep makes me feel foggy and slow the next day. Much the same as too little sleep does. I take melatonin to try and help regulate my sleep cycle, but so far it has only helped a little. Though any improvement in my sleep patterns is great. For about 30 months my sleep was very limited. It has only been since the middle of this summer that things have improved in any way with my sleep.
The chili that I made Friday night/Saturday morning tastes even better for having sat for two days in the refrigerator. The flavors are much more blended together. Not such distinct flavors from the individual ingredients. But isn’t that always the way with things like chili?!
Today is the start of a busy week of appointments for me. I have medical appointments every day... all the way up to four appointments on Wednesday. But generally two a day most days. Monday I have two appointments, including a short one to get my flu shot. I have to get X-rays (for the urologist), to check on the status of my kidney stones on Tuesday... so that he has them on Thursday when I see him. Wednesday I have those four appointments including three appointments before noon, followed by the rheumatologist in the afternoon, which can take up to 4 hours (including drive time). Thursday is the urologist and the visiting nurse. Friday is the benefits counselor, and I believe that a friend is going to take me grocery shopping. I am already a little tired just thinking about it all.
I know it will all be okay, but the anticipation is what gets me. I can imagine all sorts of possible scenarios (none of them good), when really the reality is much simpler and much less painful. lol. Our brains are such weird things.
I am hoping to get everything ironed out with my insurance on Friday. Last Friday’s appointment was mostly spent trying to get a straight answer out of my current company (we never got one), and finding out the process for expediting a change of companies. I am very dissatisfied with the company I am currently with... to the point that I don’t really want to deal with them in any way anymore. They keep lying to me. (Either that or their CSRs are just making stuff up off the top of their heads, with no regard for reality). Needless to say I am happily anticipating a change.
Well, I am off to start my day now.
Wherever you are in the world I hope you have a marvelous day!!
