I went to CWC as usual this morning, making sure to show up early to clean up the mess I'd left on Tuesday. (I'd left a bunch of tiles lying out on the table to dry, because the paint was very wet & I didn't want to mess them up, but there's an art therapy group there on Friday at 10 & they were going to need the table space, so it would have been rude to just leave my stuff up there.)

I cleaned up my stuff, covered a few painted tiles with a layer of Mod Podge (to seal the paint), then went to my weekly one-on-one meeting with my intern. I was sort of stammering and rambling my way through the first few minutes with her, and my head was hurting & I was still feeling severely codeined, and I suggested maybe I just needed to go home, because I was feeling rotten & disoriented. Unfortunately, I had left some of my stuff stashed up in the art room, and the door was locked until 11. My intern suggested that I could just lie down in our little private meeting room (there's a couch) & rest/sleep until the art room re-opened, then I could get my stuff & go home.

In the end, I fell asleep, then went up to the art room to get my stuff, and Crystal offered to give me a ride home, and I gratefully accepted.

So I was only at CWC for 2 hours, and I spent 1/2 hour of it sitting up on the stairs waiting for the art room to open at 9:30 & another 45 minutes of it dozing on the couch in the private session room waiting for the art room to open again at 11.

I got home & went to bed & fell asleep for 3 hours. Convenient, since I only slept about 5 hours last night before waking up early (again) with a bad headache (again). I got almost nothing done today.

My head is not terrible right now, but it is hurting, but I'm waiting to take a Tylenol #4 after my evening date with Shannon (we generally spend 8:30-9:30 p.m. together, either watching tv or reading aloud). Then I can just go to bed for the night & maybe get a decent night's sleep. That would be nice.

Then tomorrow I could "get some stuff done" (most of what I'm wanting to do is art-related stuff, so it isn't really necessary To Do List sort of stuff, but it's stuff I've been wanting to do — I bought some new paints and such recently, for example, and haven't even gotten to try them yet at all).
