So, I hid out, and got quite a lot finished yesterday. I still have some paperwork to do today, but don't feel like I have this unending mountain o' poo in front of me to shovel out. (Ignoring the fact, for the moment, that one of the things I didn't do yesterday was clean the chicken house...)
Oh, Weigh in, before I forget. I gained .6 pound. Not thrilled, but I did futz a little, eating somewhat more generously than I should have. I am not sure if lack of sleep causes any problems, but I have been a bit on the raggedy side in that area.
My bright shiny new doctor is sure going to get an earful of WHY? when I go in next.
I am needing to concentrate more. Husband bugs me on occasion because I read lots of different items at once, right now I am reading an Alaska Trooper murder mystery, a Cadfael (medieval) mystery,Walden's Pond, The Smithsonian magazine, and some online 'stuff' I am studying. That doesn't count several items on my bed stand, and the item for my 'faux Kindle' (I downloaded the Kindle software on my laptop, which is built to work more or less LIKE a kindle.)
Normally this isn't a problem. In fact, my reading at the moment is lighter than usual, I usually have 5 books going, not 3. I try to read books that are unrelated to each other so it doesn't get confusing, I wouldn't read 5 books by the same author, or all mysteries set in Georgia, for example. But sometimes, I do get confused.
I couldn't figure out why in the last Alaska book I read, what the ice core samples had to do with the murder. Until I realized I had read about the ice cores in the Smithsonian, not the murder mystery. Oops.
That, and in the ads of the magazine, I was browsing through the ads, and read one for a sleep aid. I always glance at the side effects, some seem like it would be worse than having the original problem, but anyway, reading along, I came upon, "repeated use of this product can produce pregnancy."
Last time I checked, you sort of need help in that area, and I don't recall there being a pill for that. I turned back the page, and reread.
"repeated use of this product can produce dependency". That made just a bit more sense.
Something tells me I really need my glasses checked. Or to read a bit slower.
