I ended up going to bed quite early last night. I ate some crackers for dinner but wasn’t hugely hungry. I was also concerned that eating anything challenging would mean not being able to sleep. In spite of my exhaustion, I had a lot of trouble falling asleep. I was too warm, and Scott and Cordelia were watching TV and laughing. I had the bedroom door shut, of course, but it didn’t do much in that direction.

I ended up not getting back to sleep after Scott got up, in spite of being tired. I got up around 6:15 (normally when Scott leaves) to help him search for his wallet. I found it just as he was about to head out the door without it because he was already going to be late for work. It had fallen into a bag in the bathroom.

I’m very, very hungry this morning, and I suspect it’s due to not eating dinner last night. My current plan is to have a normal breakfast and then see how I’m doing. I don’t want to over eat.

The new bite splint looks different than the old one. I asked if it was just the age of the old one or if the materials are different, and the dentist didn’t know. Twenty five years seems likely to produce considerable changes in materials for that sort of thing. The new bite splint feels a bit different in my mouth, too, mostly because it’s less worn.

[livejournal.com profile] evalerie and I had lunch at Jerusalem Garden. We got there around 11:30 which was a bit before the lunch rush started. When we left, people were lined up, waiting to be seated. We both had lentil soup. She had hummus with carrots and cucumbers for dipping. I had a spinach pie. That had pepper flakes in it, so I’ll have to remember not to order it next time I go there. I dipped pieces in my soup which helped a bit.

I was able to drop off that paperwork with my psychiatrist after lunch, so that’s taken care of.

I need to talk to Scott’s parents about the orchestra concert so that we can figure out logistics. Scott and Cordelia are urging me to go home after Cordelia’s school plays (they’ll be playing second). Cordelia is required to stay until the end (district rules), so Scott has to stay, but they’re thinking that Scott’s parents probably won’t want to stay for the whole thing and can take me home since it would be more or less on their way. I feel kind of like I shouldn’t do that, but it may be the most sensible course for me because I’m going to be exhausted by that point.

Other things on my to do list for today:

Baking bread
Dealing with the trash/recycling
Normal daily chores
Cordelia’s laundry if I still have resources after doing the rest (she asked me to, but she can do it after school if necessary)

Scott finally ordered a new power cord for my laptop. The one I’ve been using had been put aside because it only works some of the time. Last night, it stopped working. It’s working again now, but who knows for how long? My battery ran out to the point that my laptop turned off entirely. I’m at 57% now, and I have my fingers crossed that the cord will keep working for a few more days.

I did a little searching online to see if I could find my ideal bedside table. I didn’t. I found one that’s close that’s $170 plus shipping, one that’s close that has been completely discontinued and doesn’t appear to be for sale anywhere, and one that’s close that has been discontinued and is available for an unknown price if I’m able to drive forty miles to get it (and if no one else buys it first. The next closest is ninety miles away. After that, all of the distances are more than two hundred miles).

I need something that’s no more than seventeen inches wide and preferably more like fifteen or sixteen, with a deep drawer (at least three inches, preferably four or five) on that side, between twenty five and thirty inches long, and between twenty three and twenty six inches high. A power strip would be wonderful, but not having one isn’t a deal breaker. Sadly, I have yet to find a furniture site that allows one to enter the desired dimensions and narrow the search that way. By color, yes, but not by size.

Scott is really hoping that IKEA has something because that’s on his way home from work. Sadly, a search of their website turned up nothing that would work. I’m not absolutely certain that I used the right search terms. 'End table,' 'side table,' 'bedside table,' and 'nightstand' were all zero results, and I was reluctant to search 'table' unmodified because I was pretty sure that I wouldn’t be able to sort through those results.

Okay, I’m moving 'nap' up my to do list now. I’m starting to get a tired headache. Hopefully, I’ll still have time for everything… Maybe getting bread into the machine and then napping?
