Independence Day 2016

Independence Day 2016

My day started out rough. I slept really late after being up in the middle of the night. I had slept for an hour and a half and then woke up for a few hours. It was hard to get back to sleep. I am glad I slept till around 1030 as I was tired. I decided to make coffee and when I went to the kitchen, my crazy aunt was over. She was visiting my mother. She talked the whole time I drank the coffee. My ears hurt from her voice. She would get so caught up in whatever she was saying I thought she was going to cry a few times. She is such a drama queen. It took her at least a half hour to leave because she wouldn’t shut up. I had heard the story at least three times already, if not more.

After she left, I scurried back to my room. I called my sister to see what she was up to as I haven’t seen or heard from her since Saturday. She wanted me to come down as she was making potatoes. I went down and she said she was having a cookout later this afternoon. She invited a friend over. I was fidgety in my room so after a little while, I went back downstairs. My uncle and cousins were over so I went down to say hello. I got a little bit of sun as it was so hot out.

My mother came down to see her brother and then everyone left. I thought it was funny. We then had something to eat and then I had to go back to my room. I was so warm. I had a beer while we ate. My brother in law bought shady beer and it’s pretty good. I drank most of it, which I usually don’t do. I am not a beer drinker at all. But I will have one or two over the course of the summer.

Voices are flaring up today. I think my aunt and the heat just caused them to act up. The voices know I don’t like my aunt very much. She grates my nerves like nails on a chalkboard. I am feeling kind of out of it and I would take a trilafon but I just had a beer and don’t think it would mix very well. I will take it before bed though. I really need to talk to my pdoc about taking it every day. I see her on Friday. I am still debating on seeing my neurologist on Thursday. I haven’t been in as much nerve pain as I was when I made the appointment two months ago.

I have been in a low mood for most of the day. I just can’t seem to shake it. I have tried reading but my concentration hasn’t been so great. I wanted to read last night before bed but it never happened. I took a shower today and it just about wiped me out. I was so tired afterwards. And this was after I had a cup of coffee. My niece is a coffee junkie like I am and I saw her make her iced coffee this afternoon. To me, it was gross as she used instant coffee. The smell alone was gagging me. I cannot stand instant coffee. I thought it was blasphemy. But she drank it.

I really thought the Sox were going to lose today because they were down 4-0 by the 2nd inning. It wasn’t until the bottom of the 3rd they started cooking with gas. They overtook the Rangers and were beating them 5-4. The final score was 12-5. I am happy they won. We needed a win.

As today is Independence Day, I expect there to be fireworks of some sort this evening. I hate fireworks and loud noises. I hope my AC noise will drown out the sounds.
