Corey, his dad, and I are all finally feeling well enough to be considered “over” COVID. We each have some lingering symptoms, though. Corey and his dad still have the cough, and I still have a headache and some brain fog. Corey and I also have the fatigue everyone talks about.
My brain fog and headache may or may not be COVID related. Just before I got COVID, I started weaning myself off one of my medications (with my doctor’s help, of course). I’ve suffered cognitive decline in the last few years because of this medication and I miss the ability to memorize without effort. Coming off this medication, even though I’m doing it slowly, is causing some not so fun withdrawal symptoms (other than the headache and brain fog). Hopefully, they won’t last too long.
This week on the blog:
I finally read and finished a book this week. I read THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY by Matt Haig and it was the most profound reading experience I’ve ever had. I’m going to start SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA by Becky Albertalli today if I can actually concentrate on reading.
This week, I’ve had “Flagpole Sitta” by Harvey Danger stuck in my head. I have no idea why, but the chorus just keeps in my head over and over. I’ve tried listening to other music to get this song out of my head to no avail.
Corey and I watched THE CARD COUNTER on HBO Max. It was a lot different than either of us expected. It was really boring and a little bit weird. I wish we decided not to finish it, but Corey enjoyed it up until the end. I thought Oscar Isaac did a great job in the role. It’s not surprising, though, because he’s an amazing actor.
I love not being sick anymore.
I want to sell our place without any major difficulties. I’m still a little anxious something’s going to screw up the deal.
On Friday, the appraiser came and, as far as we know, that went well. We also had the inspection yesterday. There are a few minor things that need to be fixed. We’re going to negotiate allowances so the buyers can fix these things when they take possession of our place. Hopefully, both of us will be happy.
We currently have 11 days until we close and 13 days until we move. I hope it all goes smoothly.
I need my brain to clear. Right now, I can’t concentrate on much. It took several sittings to write this post. I’m afraid I’m not going to get caught up in my class from being sick last week because of this medication withdrawal.
How was your week? Anything exciting happen?
