Awake in the Gloaming

Days alive: 12,167

Hours slept: 5.5

Woke up at: 0430

Days till NaNoWriMo: 11 and counting

I apparently accidentally set an alarm for 4:30 in the morning. And then realized my dreams of my alarm going off at three and four am were likely happening. But I was in the middle of a flashback driven nightmare, so going back to sleep wasn’t an option. As such, I’ve been up since.

Not quite sure I actually got enough rest or sleep. And unfortunately today is not a day that I can nap, Saturday or not. I had goals I wanted to accomplish today, and most of the day has been spent outside the house so far.

Unfortunately for me, my energy levels are flagging something fierce. A caffeine pill or two may be a necessity to be able to stay awake long enough to actually make it through the day. I still have more plotting/NaNoWriMo prep work to do. And I wanted to go through the non-clothes section of my wardrobe and see what could be added to a donate or get rid of pile.

I also wanted to do a little bit of relaxation coloring.

Had a panic attack in Walmart today while picking up my medications. Had to pick and chose what I could afford, skipped the expensive non-mandatory medications I can just be very, very careful with. I thought that I had fixed the issue with my flexible spending account, but nope. I ended up having to pay out of pocket for a couple of meds. Since the birth control that keeps me from bleeding to death is free, the other two only cost me a little over ten dollars. I’m hoping the account issues with the FSA is fixed by the time I have to pick up my Lyrica. Even at $40 compared to the $20 I was paying, it’s still frustrating and expensive.

I’m still hammering out a scene list for Midnight Calls, which is the working title for NaNoWriMo 2018.

We’re going to a high school marching band exposition this evening, where two of my Darling Wife’s cousins will be performing. I’m hoping it won’t be too hot out. And it means a two hour drive to the center of the state, but that is hardly ever a trial for either of us.

When I first started my job where I’m working now, I drove clear across the state several times a week! I’m glad my commute is no longer several hundred miles.

Gotta run for now.
