My word count for July is the highest so far this year, 26171 words. It's the first time I've broken 20K words during any month this year. I hit 19K in February, but mostly, I've been around 15K or 16K each month.

I finally got around to getting a shingles vaccination yesterday. Since I'm 50, my insurance covered it entirely, so there was really no reason not to do it. Shingles is not something I want, and a reduction in risk and in likely severity if I'm unlucky enough to get it in spite of the vaccine is more than worth a needle in the arm.

We went to the bank and took care of the business we had there. The teller was very friendly which helped. We put the insurance claims into the mailbox outside the Green Road post office before we went to the bank because Scott thought that traffic in that direction was only going to get worse if we went later. When there isn't construction, the bank and the post office are only a minute or three apart, depending on whether or not one gets stopped at the light.

The sleep disorders people called and offered me an appointment in September instead of in December. I took it, of course. I'm not sure what will come of it, but at that point, I'll have been taking Ativan nightly for almost three months. Or, maybe, I'll reach the point of no longer needing the Ativan to be able to sleep with the c-PAP on. I don't know.

I didn't quite get seven hours of sleep last night, but all of it was with the c-PAP on. I'm tired enough right now that I'll probably lie down to nap later on, but right now, I'm waiting for [personal profile] evalerie to pick up some things that we want to donate. I also want to get a couple of household chores taken care of before I lie down.

I'm looking at what I need to do, going forward in Ingress. I'm at level 10 and have the badges I need for level 11 (but am a long way away in terms AP). After that, though, I won't have the necessary badges. I have four badges at gold or higher. I have three at silver, and none of those are anywhere near going up to gold. I have seven badges at bronze, and three of those are close to going silver and are straightforward enough that I can pursue them (number of hacks, number of resonators deployed, number of mods deployed). Sadly, getting those to gold, while just a matter of time, won't be a fast thing, not unless I go out a lot more than I normally have.

Sadly, the best way for me to do some of this stuff would be for me to ride buses and hack whatever the bus passes. I'm not sure that's something I can do without out either company or Ativan. Cordelia's not willing to do it. She loves riding the bus but says it wouldn't be fun doing it with me.

Maybe I can get Scott to take me out a few times while he's off work next week? I'm not going to hold my breath, but it's something I'd like.

I decided to go ahead and do that Fic Positivity meme. My thread is here. I'm way back on p.7, so I don't expect all that much random traffic. I also feel a little weird doing it.

Ah, well. I just ate a lunch that means I shouldn't lie down (Scott got a different kind of sausage*, and the spicing is not agreeable. I will end up eating them anyway because Scott can't and Cordelia certainly won't), so I think going through comments to find people whose work I know will be a nice, low stress activity for the afternoon until I can actually lie down.
