I'm out of the prescription pain meds, and they didn't do much for me anyway. I wake up in the morning with a dull headache right above my eyebrows - like a hangover without the party. I was warned that daily headaches can go on for at least a month after a misadventure like this.
And - and this is truly weird - I've lost my taste for coffee. Even Starbucks. 30 years of daily coffee drinking and now it tastes yucky! I'm hoping that will come back in time, but right now, coffee tastes bitter and unpleasant.
I am so sick of being cooped up in the house. Today L is picking me up for an afternoon outing - I feel like an old lady getting sprung from the nursing home for a treat. I am feeling a little better every day, so this week I'm going to get out and do things. I haven't been to Target in over a month! That is just wrong! Girl and I are going to go shopping and run errands and not sit in the house like slugs, because it is way too easy to get lazy. Thursday I go back to the neurosurgeon, and then we'll see how much longer I'll be housebound and bored. I am not good at this, I am even getting sick of knitting. I tire easily and I have to pace myself if I want to do anything, but the more I do the better I feel.
I have a lot of things to think about - some things I can't talk about in public yet, but my future is definitely indefinite. I can say this much - Jefe was let go the day after my brain popped (no connection), the company is having another round of layoffs and my promotion ain't happening anytime soon. I am sailing off into the unknown, in so many ways.
I'm not worried - I was trying to take a nap the other day (which sends a signal to the universe for everyone to call me every half hour) and one of the calls was from a headhunter. Somehow, my resume is still in circulation. I explained to her that I wasn't in any shape for a job interview at the moment, but it was nice to feel wanted. L says her firm would hire me if I wanted to go back to law firm life, and another lawyer has been hinting that if I'm restless, I should call him. If I want to stay here and I have to get another job, I could do that (assuming my vision clears up).
I want to move, but I have to think about my finances, the housing market, where to go and how to time it. Boy has offered to come down and help me get the house ready to put on the market when the time is right. I'm hoping the housing market has hit bottom and will start to rebound, but I'm not terribly concerned. I'm in one of the hottest school districts in the country, not just the state, and houses here sell in good times and bad. Thats why we bought here. I have my fingers crossed that this choice will pay off.
My horoscope has been interesting the past few days - it has advised that I just float along with the current and see what happens. I really have no choice, but it's interesting that the advice fits.
