Noonish- quality time at the car repair shop dealing with the check engine light. The code came up as a vapor seal failure that has occurred since the fuel inlet line is now solid. Another gob of $$s to fix while I wait.

AM- woke up to my alarm at 6am (PDT). My finger seems the same as yesterday, but my new bandage is more flexible, so there is more movement capability and less pressure on the wounded tip. 🥳👏🏼

I woke up in the night from a dream that I had an open hole in my right side waist area. Like an inch in diameter and an inch deep. With fat showing. A clean wound, that needed packing, and it hurt. I had to check myself to make sure it was NOT real. I actually WAS hurting there, but made some kind of decision to avoid the area and turn over anyway.😅 Such an odd response to emotional stress/anxiety.

Crazy dream! I've had that happen before where something was hurting a little irl but my dreams made it seem like a way worse injury like what the hell brain?! So unsettling when you first wake up.

Glad you got a better and more comfortable bandage for your finger!

AM- woke up just before my alarm at 6am (PDT). With my daughter home, there are already tons of things scheduled for both herself and the kiddo today. Ugh. She’s got me running all over town at least twice…I’m not happy about this. And, the weather forecast is due to be hot: 89 (F)degrees😱🥵

Yay she’s coming home! I’m sure you’re relieved and happy! I’m sure your granddaughter is ecstatic. 😊 How is your finger?
We picked her up at 9pm and didn’t get into bed until after 1am😅😵‍💫. It was all very exciting😂😎
My finger is zinging a lot but not throbbing, and looks like it’s building a new tip, so….better!🥳

AM- woke up well before my alarm at 5:15am (PDT); daughter was already up due to jet lag messing up her sleep schedule. There was a big hairy rolling kiddo meltdown last night that I’d had to bail out on cuz my nerves just couldn’t take it. This morning, everyone seems cheery🥳

  • Walk: 1.5 miles✅…after seeing the kiddo get across the street; getting her used to going alone for after I’m gone and her mom is working. The distance was not more, but I was going way faster and a different route, so there was that…..

Packing up, prepping for daughter to drive me 1 1/2 hours thru the Gorge to meet my husb who is coming 3 1/2 hours with doggos to meet us. I am SOOOO ready😎This was a really good experience, for all of us. Not sure I wanna repeat it anytime soon. But, perhaps in time…🥴

AM- woke up at nearly 6:30am (PDT), with a sore arm on the Covid side. The night was long and uncomfortable. It’s smoky/hazy outside, makes my eyes burn. We are prepping for my husb to leave on Fri for a 17 day long road trip to see his mom, his best friend and his step mom. I can feel the 7th anniversary of my mom’s death, which is tomorrow. It’s emotional…..

Is it possible he is having problems with vision or vertigo/loss of balance? Trudy definitely does not want to move around in the dark anymore. For a while she was spending part of the night on my bed and part on the floor. When she decided she wanted to get up onto the bed in the middle of the night, she would bark. I'd wake up, turn on the bedside lamp, and she would climb into the bed and settle right down to sleep. She would not climb up in the dark though!
