Tuesday - Saturday

And another longish update, but not too bad...

Tuesday:
13:24 Up since about 11, brain firing fairly well, so I'm reading and writing atm. Pain/numb 6/8. Hope to workout later. Started Armor. #almeds
21:38 Workout accomplished; been helping boy review Linux/Unix stuffs in advance of an interview. Brain turning to mush already: #almeds

Wednesday:
15:22 Today's 1 thing: help A clean apartment (she's doing all the hard stuff, I'm just putting little things away, etc). Pain/numb 8/7. #almeds
15:24 Later, in exchange for housework, I'll help her w/ tax-cut to file 2009. Also, more linux/unix review w/ T if my brain still works. #almeds
23:47 Taxes, linux/unix didn't happen. Instead, nap, TV. Brain has returned to semi-functional after napping, but A is missing forms & T is in bed. #almeds

Thursday:
11:40 Awake since ~ 10, headache 9, pain/numb 7/6. Slept poorly, fubar dreams. Today's 1 thing: take a walk or workout. #almeds
11:42 Logic/writer brain here more often the last week, but napping more and I think more lost time (Trans. Global Amnesia) as tradeoff. #almeds

Friday:
15:05 grrr... fractured sleep due to upset stomach & fubar dreams; woke ~ 2:30pm with splitting headache. Headache 8, pain 6, numb 8. #almeds
15:07 Didn't get to walk or workout yesterday due to stomach, doubt I will today either. No obvious changes w/ Armor thus far; grumpy. #almeds
23:39 Today's 1 thing: shower, help A with tax stuff for a bit. Headache mostly gone, but numb continues to be bad as does stomach. #almed

Saturday:
17:32 Awake, slept about 14 hours total between more fubar dreams & noisy elephants. Pain/numb 7/7. Today's 1 thing: errands. Most of the day disappeared.
