The high point of my catastrophic day yesterday was the boiling oil in my eye. Yep. It was that good. There were good points to be sure (I am sooo grateful that a coworker came in on her day off to help me because I would’ve never gotten it all done in the deli without her) but all in all? A crap day. The meeting lasted til 11:30am. I had to be to work at noon. I still had to run home and get dressed for work. I did manage to get to work on time with a brief kiss from each of my family as I bolted back out the door. Then the real fun started. I was on my own by 2:30pm. And we were busy. It was during this fun episode that I splashed the 375 degree oil in my eye. My help arrived around 6pm or so. By the time I left work last night I could barely walk. By the time bedtime got here I took all the medication I was supposed to (I will sometimes leave out the every eight hour one because it makes me feel wonky). That lasted until 4am. Then I tried a sleeping pill. That didn’t work. So I took another muscle relaxer (aka the wonky pill). I was able to sleep til 9am or so. When I got up I was shuffling around like a little old man. I did manage to get through the medicine fog enough to get my article written and sent in.
And here I am. I need to get one more bill paid and then I might try to get my seeds in the memorial garden. It is another hot day so both AC units will be running. I will try to get some housework done. Not all of it but some. There are things that have been neglected due to my back and need to get done. I may try to get in touch with my parents. I am very grateful that I have two days in a row off. Tomorrow I need to go and get the girls medicine from the vets office. They are closed today unfortunately.
I only broke down in tears three times at work last night. My friend’s death hit me in waves and then I just got so overwhelmed with everything that I had to do at work. I hope to get relaxed today. I have been watering the outdoor plants in the morning before the heat of the day and then again at night but I missed my chance this morning getting up so late. I will use the watering can if any of them get too wilty.
I guess I should wrap this up and get it posted. Thank you for all your support over the past few days. It means a lot. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
