Hot as…

It was 104°F here in Edmond, America yesterday. 

It’s 5:30 am, and it’s already 84°F…with a high of 99°F. 

And I can’t sleep. 

My stomach is grumbling due to the Lactulose, my head hurts, and I’m sleeping on the couch because I threw away my last set of sheets because I discovered bed bugs.

Where those came from, I can only speculate. It doesn’t appear they’ve infested the mattress though, as I haven’t seen the telltale signs. They were hiding behind a picture hanging near my bed. I’m going to treat the mattress with some stuff I found at Lowe’s and pray that does the trick. Then I’ll buy new sheets, blankets, and pillows. I can’t afford a new bed at this point in time. But I’ll get one if there’s no other choice. 

Because my couch really is too short for me to sleep on…and I’m not all that tall; only about 5’4″.

But back to the weather. 

All I want is a good downpour to cool things off for a couple of days. Because right now, 99 is not cold. The heat and humidity make me ill and I don’t sweat to speak of. I’m a walking, talking hot mess of a gal. Going to the hospital due to heat exhaustion is not on my summer to do list. Or any other trip to the hospital for that matter. 

Rain, please?

Still trying to “catch” something

I thought it was because I ate way too much on July 4th, but 2 days later, I still feel like 💩. 

Errands and groceries still have to get done though. No one else will do them for me. 

It’s this headache that’s going to do me in. Last time that happened, I ended up in the ER because I accidentally took Excedrin, which has aspirin in it. I can’t take stuff like Advil because it has ibuprofin in it, and that’s not good for my wonky liver.

Either the headache or the lumpy feeling in my stomach. I had a piece of toast for breakfast. After that, I was full. And taking my morning meds with water made the fullness worse. My stomach actually hurts. 

I guess it’s back to grilled cheese sandwiches, soup, and mac n cheese for me. Maybe a salad thrown in there once in a while. And Zevia™ ginger ale to quiet things down.
