Finally got caught up on my sleep with 10 hours of shut-eye. So then why am I still exhausted??? I honestly don’t know what the fuck is wrong with me at this point. I did wake up a few times, once to pee, but not due to traffic. That’s pretty amazing considering that the trash and recycle trucks came by today.

Tom had his appointment today with my ENT and was as impressed with her as I knew he would be. Best ENT ever. She doesn’t think he’s got an ear infection, though. She thinks he had some kind of virus which he’s still suffering the effects of so she prescribed two weeks of Prednisone for him. Poor guy! He’s a lot braver than I am and he’s not scared or anything like that but oral steroids definitely have their side effects. I took them in my twenties back when I was a smoker. Jitteriness, insomnia, insane hunger, water retention… I remember well. Tammy has had to take them as well. Once I cared enough about my health to choose life over cigarettes, I haven’t needed them since. I’ve only been on antibiotics once in over two decades and that was for a tooth infection.

It was a truly shitty 24th anniversary for us. Well, at least for me it was. I couldn’t fall asleep until well after midnight, and then some fucking asshole dumping decorative rocks further down woke me up at 7:15. 7-fucking-15 in the morning! Really, if you can’t keep from being woken up in a retirement community that early in the morning, where can you keep from being woken up that early?

Tammy said she’s having many tests done and that her new pulmonologist thinks she has sarcoidosis which is why she has issues with her lymph nodes. I thought this was determined years ago, though, and that she was up for a lung transplant. Or maybe they delayed it because she still smokes?

Finished watching the second season of 13 Reasons Why and was a little disappointed in the ending. I kind of wanted something big to go down in the end. Don’t read any more of this if you plan to watch it, but when I saw Tyler approach the school with the rifle, I was kind of hoping he would take out Bryce and his cronies. The way it ended suggested there will be a season 3.

Last day of vacation and then it’s back to work for both of us. I have mixed emotions about the vacation coming to an end. I loved taking a break from the usual routine even though I normally enjoy the usual routine. I mostly loved having him around more and getting things done in and around the house. However, we didn’t quite get to everything on our list and it will be nice to have some free time to myself. I still work better alone. That way the only distractions come from outside.

Slept as bad as I do when I’m on nights and being woken up by traffic, but not feeling that tired. BP is up due to having extra sodium yesterday. Definitely time to jump back on track! I’ll go easier on the sodium today. We both agreed to hold off on the sugar. We were going to get cookies to bake in our new oven but I don’t want to rehook myself to sugar. It really is that addicting. The more you have, the more you want. Definitely can’t eat like I used to. Things like pizza gives me heartburn and too much sodium jacks my blood pressure up, which is normally perfect.
