A month behind

7/6/06 Sunday, NO-It's 8/6/06
Can’t believe it is already 11:00. Cherie and I are both taking it easy and enjoying a relaxed morning. I went online and ordered my meds from the VA. Also briefly explored a link to the Farm Services site that mentions loans for beginning farmers. That fits my description I think.

We don’t have any definite plans for today. I will write the letters to the collection agencies to explore possible identity theft and inform them of the bankruptcy. Then I hope to outline the letter for the legal issues Cherie’s family is facing. Yesterday was a lost day. The slow down pretty much robbed me of the ability to accomplish much of anything. Hate it when I lose a day. It is much better than before when I would not be functional for 4 out of 7 days. That was three years ago so I’ve come a long way. Hope I keep on improving. The blood pressure medicine helped the migraines and perhaps the slow downs as well.

Time to get writing.

That’s embarrassing. I was looking at my calendar and thought I had been putting entries on the wrong month. I thought it was July and evidently had that impression since the third of the month because all the entries are dated the seventh month. When I looked in the calendar I saw the entry for taking Fred to the grocery store was placed in August. I got upset, thinking I would have to go through the month and redo the entries. Cherie asked me what was wrong and when I told her she looked at me with those understanding eyes and said “It’s August honey”. That spun my head a little as I realized I had been lost again. I was just saying a paragraph before that I am much better than three years ago. That’s true cause three years ago I wouldn’t know what day it was when I woke up till I looked at the calendar but I still lose track on occasion.

I am again not as sharp as I was this morning. I must wonder if the physical work I was doing in Texas contributed to the drastic reduction of slowdowns at the time. Perhaps even the air. All I know is now that I am back in Toledo the slowdowns are also back. In Texas Cherie gave me an aspirin every morning so perhaps the thinning effect aspirin has on blood helped. Think I should start doing that here.

See, that's what comes of being American - you drive on the wrong side of the road, you put the month before the day when you write out a date - it'll all change when you join the mighty EU !! :)
