Floating Just above LaLa Land

The 8 am dog walk is tortuous .
Aluce and I trudge about in the grass , looking at each other through the sea fret , our plans to sit out in the garden and sample the delights of hazelnut muesli and strong black coffee on the new garden bench completely thwarted . First there is the lack of sun . Second there is the damp haze clinging and foisting itself on us . And finally there is the banging in my head .

All week I have floated about slightly above LaLa land in a haze of pills designed to keep me going , to get me about my day to day business , but today I am ready to admit defeat and as we approach the house together and Alice heads for her Bonio and her sofa and I peel off my boots all covered in wet grass clippings and sand I realise this is the day nothing much will get done and I head back upstairs and there is the bed all covered in cats and nothing to stop me clambering aboard .....

It sounds like it was a good day to climb into bed - if only the headache wasn't there to ruin a perfectly good nap!
I still just cannot imagine having to deal with that kind of pain - and never knowing when it is going to ruin your day, your plans, your good mood. You seem to take it all in stride though. I'm sure I wouldn't handle it near as well.

I hear you about the work thing - every year toward the end of the year there is always the big belt tightening. Can't buy a pencil. But AC? In that kind of heat? I think I'd have to call the health dept. First I'd pretend to faint, then I would call the health dept. :)

I hope you continue to share with us as much as you usually do. I know nobody can talk about EVERYthing, but the whole dream thing is fascinating!

Hey..wow..you doing OK? Did you have a med change? That's been part of my problem...full med overhaul. Ugh!

You ARE right! How bizarre is that? I have been getting some errors and Firefox or MSN have been telling me they have to shut down. It's happened a couple of times when I was trying to leave a comment somewhere - but how on earth ...? Because I remember reading that post on Mahala's blog - how could the comment end up in the wrong place?
I don't always remember to go back and look if I've commented somewhere, so I never noticed that my comment ended up in the wrong place until now.
Wow, wonder if anything else ended up on the wrong blog!

Smart one though, you figured it out easily enough! :)
