Whoops, But Mostly Yay!


Today has been a great day, and I can’t really put my finger on why that is. I woke up in a fantastic mood, and I’ve been chipper and upbeat ever since. Not even breaking one of my streaks yesterday was enough to bring me down.

Yesterday I forgot to log in and do my Khan Academy lessons. I’m not terribly upset by this, since for the last few weeks I’ve been very much calling it in over there, sometimes doing the bare minimum to keep the streak alive. It’s been a while since I put any real effort into my work on Khan Academy. I plan on getting back to it, but I think I’m going to take a few days off from it before jumping back on the bandwagon.

I think a lot of the reason that I’m in such a good mood is that I’m feeling much better today than I have been of late. It seems the worst of the strep throat is over and I have a good amount of energy today, so I think I’ll be able to catch up on some of the housework that I’ve let slide because I haven’t felt up to it.

I like this feeling. I don’t get to experience it very often, so I hope it sticks around for at least the rest of the day, if not longer.



I haven’t written in almost a week because I’m not sure what to write about.

My lethargy has finally reached the breaking point. I had an appointment with my psych med manager that I’ve now had to postpone twice because I was just too tired to get behind the wheel. I’ve called my general practitioner’s office to get a referral for a sleep study, and at this point the referral is over in the hands of the sleep center waiting insurance approval before calling to make the appointment. I’m almost certain that sleeping with a CPAP is going to be helpful, but I don’t know how helpful it will be.

Pokémon Go has become a bigger part of my life. I’m up to level 9, I’ve caught over 100 Pokémon total, and have a few fairly high powered ‘mons to do battle with, though I still haven’t picked a team or gone to a gym. We’ve been going out to hit a series of PokéStops – these are locations that you can resupply at for free – at night and catching whatever we can along the way. (Tonight, it’s my turn to drive so my wife can play over in the passenger’s seat.) I admit that I haven’t been getting the exercise that I should be getting playing this game, but it’s getting me out of the house on a regular basis, and that’s a good thing. Last night we went to the store and I got a little exercise there. Also last night we met a couple that was out playing just as we were, and had a nice conversation with them. It’s our first social interaction with another player, and it was a good experience. It seems silly to admit that this little game is succeeding where almost nothing was before. (Although I have to admit, I very willingly left the house to go see the new Ghostbusters movie on Sunday, and was very glad I did – I enjoyed it very much.)

That parenthetical statement reminds me – apparently I helped make this past weekend very memorable for my wife. She thanked me multiple times for making her weekend so good, and I didn’t really do much except be willing to watch a few movies with her and go out hunting Pokémon. But I’m very glad that I did it because she was obviously overjoyed with how her weekend went, so there’s that.

Today’s been kinda low key. Got some housework done, got my main three daily tasks done (well, done once I hit publish, that is), and also have been taking short little naps in between. It hasn’t been a spectacular day, but it’s been good, and I’ll take that any day of the week.
