I was having some kind of dream and then in the dream, my ankle started hurting me. I woke up and sure enough, my ankle was hurting. I don’t know why. It was raining so maybe that was the reason. Rain is supposed to happen most of the week. I took a breakthrough med and tried to go back to sleep but I didn’t want to wake up three hours later to take my morning pills so I took them and then silenced the alarm. I slept for about four hours. My phone woke me up. My mother was calling me. She asked how I was and I said you woke me. I was in pain. I wanted to see her today but my sisters came up looking for her clothes she wanted and were leaving soon. I needed a shower and there was no way I was going to rush as my ankle would flare and I would be useless. I stayed home.
The ball game was delayed due to rain in Detroit. The Red Sox Twitter account said to follow the Tigers to find out when they would be playing. No one else was tweeting about the game so I followed them. Usually a few writers I follow keeps me informed but there was nothing. They hardly tweet during the game anymore so if I don’t listen or watch, I have no idea what is going on.
My ankle pain was up and down most of the day, in the same spot. Going up and down stairs were tough. I tried to stay on one floor. I was disappointed the game was delayed because I had the big TV all to myself as my mother wasn’t home. I made some fries for lunch. They are the worst fries in the world. I ate like half of them and couldn’t eat anymore. I cooked them for 25 minutes and they weren’t even crispy but they looked burnt. I don’t know. My nephew bought them accidently. He was supposed to buy another brand so we were stuck with these. I didn’t feel like making anything else. I watched the game until my ankle couldn’t stand it any longer. Then I listened to it in my room.
I called my mother around 1700 to see how she was. She was okay. She is still in a lot of pain. She walked two rooms so she is getting there, slowly. She hasn’t done stairs yet. I don’t think she will until she can walk a hallway or something close. The Sox won 9-1. Then my ankle flared up again. I still had dishes in the sink from my breakfast. I guess I will do them tomorrow.
My brother in law made a huge gravy. It was oily. I had some pasta and a couple of meatballs. My GERD is going to kill me later. I don’t know why my reflux has been so bad lately. Maybe the pill is wearing off. I’ve been on it a long time. I am afraid to tell a doctor about it only because I don’t want a tube down my throat. I’ve avoided it for 20 some odd years and would like to keep it that way.
Been re-reading Norse Mythology. My friend just read it and reviewed it. Gave it 4 stars. He gives most books he reads 4 stars. I don’t know why. It is a really good book. I read it the first time in a day and a half. I love this book. I don’t remember if I reviewed it. My friend gives detailed reviews, which I don’t do. I give a few sentences and then that is that. I don’t give a complete book report on what it was about like some people. That drives me crazy. I am too sleepy to read tonight. Hope when I lie down, I am not in reflux city.
