Salacious Saturday - daily post may contain TRIGGERS

Afternoon. Don't see one for today, so sorry if there is one.

Weather: Was supposed to rain all day. Apparently the meteorologist mistook humidity with rain.

Sleep: Decent. Slept til 10, and I can't do that. Trying to get used to g etting up at 4am. No more sleeping in for Mel. May sneak a nap in though.

Mood: Aggitated (ty inlaws), still growing anxiety. And still hypomanic

Plans: Rolled out of bed, took meds, and hubs decided to attack the wall mural I am working on. (I've got a lot to and I hopped right in and did most of the other side of it. All while dancing to current pop music, so I wiggling and dancing as I did it. I call it my wake-up and creative music. Ate a couple bagels. Hubs and I had our daily deep talk which we've been doing since he came home from the rehab/psych hospital. Helped him shave his head and trim his goatee which he always seems to mess up. LOL. Now I'm washing that gray right out of my hair. Not sure if I'm just going to let it curl or tackle the straightening process yet. Thinking curls. Find something to wear tonight. Cook dinner and then we're off to see ds1's HS play - Bye Bye Birdie. He is not actually "in" the play as a castmember, but he is the stage manager and has designed, built and painted all of the backdrops with help, of course, but the design and most of the painting is his. He had lots of help with building. Not his thing really. Then home to bed. Trying not to think about Tuesday (neuro appt) all day.

mood. all over the place. My pain meds make me hyper, then I crash and start to cry for no reason. (trigger) my step mother just found out that her cancer has spread all over,even to her bones. I fear that her health will decline quickly. The thought of her not being around for Christmas saddens me. The thought of my father being alone and depressesd breaks my heart.

plans. so far my pain hasnt been very bad. Its about time I had a bit of relief. Will try to take a nap.

love you muah
