Having been rudely awakened this morning at about 5:45 a.m. by what felt like someone ramming a jackhammer against by right side, I knew it was necessary to "rise and shine" and go take a pain pill!
The "jackhammer" affect stems from the stupid shingles I've been dealing with since the end of August now and trust me when I tell you this much, it's something that is getting old, very, very old now. And, with that in mind, please dear shingles, you have completely overstayed your visit in my old body! Cease and desist, go away, leave me alone and furthermore, don't bother coming back for a rerun visit!
Sure do wish these suckers would go away with a couple of verbal commands or waving a magic wand or even by taking a few pills.
Which reminds me, I just took another pain pill about 1/2 hour ago and although it isn't making the pain disappear, it has done enough work to make me groggy. Well, that combined with the bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats I ate and having been awake since 5:45 a.m.
Oh, and did I say I got up at 5:45 a.m.? Just checking there cause my system is much more inclined to be settling down, snuggling in to go to sleep, not getting up at that ungodly hour.
And now, I think I'll retire for a short mid-winter nap. Sounds like a darned good game plan to me and who knows, maybe when I wake up from that I will have at least a little bit of a clue as to what to do today!
In an hour or two - maybe more - my system might have made some decisions for me. But for now, just let me nap a while.
