I find myself purposely avoiding finishing the DC travel guide blog post. I'm completely not interested in working on it anymore, not sure why. Today, I'd really like to start writing some of the things I reminded myself to write on yesterday, but I feel guilty for not finishing up that other post at home. I think the only thing that needs doing is a quick read-through to make sure I didn't leave anything awkward or un-finished, and cut out the part of "where to avoid" because I lost my maps/forget where those areas are.
I did not sleep well last night. I think it was a combination of eating too close to bedtime (ordered sushi, mad about that because we had food, I just didn't want to make it and Boyfriend was not going to), worrying about Fae (might've nibbled on a little food last night, but hard to tell, and nothing this morning), and worrying about Boyfriend, who is on his way back to a nocturnal schedule. I don't know when I woke up last night, but I decided he needed to come to bed and fetched him. I felt too hot and didn't want to cuddle, I just wanted him close. He fell asleep easily. I slept restlessly for the rest of the night. I feel down today, probably from the sleep troubles. Maybe I should avoid blogging so I won't right things in an overly negative light.
It's overcast and rainy today, which makes me really worry about my Vitamin D absorption. I'm at 8000 IU daily now and will stay there for a couple months/until I get my levels tested. I don't want to go until I get my flexible spending account card fixed (have to pay out of pocket for a bit to re-pay something that wasn't applicable) and I have a new bill for over $300 because I never checked of my insurance would cover allergy testing. I'm guessing they won't cover shots either! My future appointment has been cancelled. I guess I will just be experimenting with raw local honey and Quercitin from here on out.
I am making a habit of keeping my glasses off at the office and at home. It's made a minimal improvement in my vision (I'm near-sighted). I don't know when I can get to the eye doctors, but because of my current bills, and the fact that I'll probably have to pay at least $130 for new lenses (mine are chipped and I'll probably need a new scrip), it's not happening anytime soon.
No-poo: The all-natural shampoo bars I ordered arrived. I got a few "sample sizes". I felt like I had to use quite a bit to get my hair clean, it was pretty gross! I started with the coconut milk bar. It has a light herbal scent, nothing over-powering or headache-inducing fortunately. My hair feels much cleaner today, and I will wash it again soon (maybe even tonight) to see if I can get rid of the rest of the grimey feel before I try to go a week without washing again. I am hoping this can be an easier way to handle infrequent washing, rather than the ineffective baking soda & vinegar combo. Having hard water sucks My hair started to feel better at my aunt's (fairly clean water, pretty soft), but it probably would have taken some cleaning & time for it to adjust to the soft water and feel good again.
I proposed a haircut idea to Boyfriend and he just made a face but would not tell me what he thought. I really dislike when he does that, I would rather hear what he thinks than try to figure it out and feel frustrated not knowing, if he's going to respond like that. Still on the fence about cutting it. I like having it around jaw-length, but it'll be so much easier to keep clean & dye when it's shorter like I had it cut last January.
Reminder to self: need $40 cash for therapist this Friday.
