Just a quick post today.I have a thick brain fog today, and honestly all I want to do is take a 12 hour nap.
Until last night, I slept 6 hours in three days. I am calling it a slight case of insomnia, as I do not know what else I could call it. ( It started the night before that coffee binge, by the way, so that was a by-product, not a cause lol )
I had two nights in a row of less than three hours of sleep, and getting up before 3 AM. Last night I took two melatonin and went to bed at 7:30 PM. I slept...albeit not deeply, until 6:30 this morning. I got up a few times but the meds made me groggy enough to be able to go back to sleep.
I am still dragging today, from residual tiredness and brain fog, so I am just chilling out today, not doing much of anything, except yawning a lot.
I do have some potential good news. I think I was approved for medicaid today, starting next month. If that is true, then my life as far as healthcare goes will change drastically, as I will finally be able to go to the doctor for my myriad of health issues, and have the tests I need done so I can get help finding out what is wrong and how to fix it. I also heard back from the MJF foundation, and it seems that they are going to help me as well, so that is great news.
Jack has to have another MRI, as he is having some serious pain a little higher up on his back. Still related to his work injury. Also, the PT people stopped his appointments, as he is not improving even after 8 weeks. So back to the drawing board for he and his doctor. You know, it is really terrible that a man who wants nothing more to go back to work can not do so, and there are so many people out there riding that clock out so they do not have to work. It just does not seem right.
We did finally get to go to the grocery store yesterday, and scored a bunch of stuff in a sweet sale at one of our local grocers. Few things make me happier than having a fully stocked kitchen. Except my net being paid. One down, one to go *Grins*
This weekend I intend to clean the house, and next week I will be starting on Alex's room. It is time to weed out her toys and clothes to donate, and do a little rearranging. Then it will be time to paint, and I am excited about it. It will be a drastic change, and I will take before and after pics if I can remember to get batteries for my camera! I need to invest in some good rechargeable ones, since I already have a charger for them ;)
However, today I rest. So there.
What are your plans for the weekend?
