I weathered yet another snow storm this winter. Fortunately this one is starting to melt off already after only a couple days. If I wait long enough, maybe I won’t have to shovel the snow off my car 🙂 Been staying close to home and generally getting less than I would like accomplished. If I haven’t written as much the last month it’s only because I have less to report than usual. We’ve had a couple new people move into our complex. So far they seem to be working out. I haven’t been outside of my hometown since before Christmas and I haven’t had house guests since our family’s Christmas party.
My back seems to be doing better. I can walk further distances but not as far as I would like. I’m still lifting arm weights to make up the difference. I’ve been sleeping more. I am convinced this is due to cutting out caffeine for the last few days. I haven’t gotten jittery and irritable from withdraw, at least not yet. I’m probably going to get out and buy some coffee within the next day or two once all the ice is melted. We’ve had snow cover for over a month now. And usually here in Nebraska winters are bitterly cold but dry.
One month of winter has come and gone. And I really don’t feel like I got much accomplished from all of my indoor time. I do go see my psych doctor early in February. I guess I really don’t have much to report to him besides being more or less stable though a little paranoid around people. But even that paranoia has been lessening within the last few days. I don’t foresee any medication changes coming in the near future.
It’s been a quiet and uneventful winter for me so far. But I am beginning to look forward to spring. Just another two months to go.
