I hate the long drive from Bill6’s and J’s house at night so I slept over at their place last night. We played Dinosaur Island and, of course, I lost. But I had fun playing!

3 Times Woken by a Zooming And/Or Meowing Cat
Spock, apparently, decided to kick off his birthday week by zooming about the house singing the song of his people at one a.m. And then again at two a.m. Only to be followed up with an encore at five. Maybe I gave him too much catnip?

3 New Diagnoses
2 Adjustments to Medication
1 Doctor Appointment
Today was… a train wreck. I didn’t finish anything that I wanted to at work, barely got to touch my calls. I’m so frustrated. The system kept going down today and it just killed my ability to get things done.

45 Minute Nap on Lunch Break
3 Hours of Sleep
1.5 Burgers Eaten
I hate the “sleep aid” I’ve been prescribed. It takes forever to fall asleep. Then, I sleep anywhere between one and a half and three hours and then I’m up for the rest of the night.

459 Day Streak on Duolingo
I didn’t get the ten thousand words written that I wanted to today. I got lost down a rabbit hole of research. It is highly unlikely I will hit 50,000 words this month. I could cheat, and just say that I did it, but I’m not going to.

Do I get bonus points for using a mildly obscure word that basically boils down to being as stubborn as a mule?
