- Got pooped on by a bird within 30 seconds of exiting my front door, on a day where I was happy with my outfit and thought I looked nice. Fortunately, I was in a thin but long-sleeved shirt, so I didn't get any on me. I walked back into the house, went to the front entry closet, where my clothes are kept (left over from when I was living in the living room), and changed shirts, although things didn't match quite as well. Everyone I've told the story to has told me that it's supposed to be lucky. I'm not sure how.
- On the other hand, I went to take my medicine at the beginning of work and realised that one of the pills looked off, and in fact looked a lot like something I took last night. I pulled out a magnifier I keep with me to look at the imprint, put it and the shape and colour into the drugs.com database, and it wound up being tizanidine. They're pretty mild, really. Each tablet is only 4 mg and you normally take three at night, but they can make me loopy. So I'm glad I caught it. I went through the other bins of the pill reminder box and there was one more. I'm not sure if I consolidated some other medicine and accidentally put tizanidine into a similar bottle, then put them in the reminder box, or what. I think that's what happened, anyway. To be honest, I'm not sure what small white pill I accidentally substituted it for; I think it was my furosemide (Lasix, or diuretic). Thankfully, tizanidine (also known as Flexeril) has a scored side where you can divide it into fourths, and that's what clued me in because I noticed it last night when I took them. I guess that was lucky. Oh, wait, we're back to the bird poop.
- After work (which was steady) I went and picked YKWIA from our friend's house, took him home, let him rest for a bit, then went on a major grocery run on my own. It took an hour and a half. I got everything on the list except wine. I got to the liquor store that's attached to Kroger just at 10. I asked the security guard if they were closed, and he said they were. I asked when they closed, and he says, 'They're closed now.' Well, gee. I got that part. So I ask, when do they normally close so I know next time. Nine? Ten? It was ten--so technically I came up at 9:59, but oh, well, we'll have to get wine to cook with tomorrow instead. Most of it was fresh produce, dairy, beans, that sort of thing. YKWIA pretty much never cooks out of a box--it's all real food.
- I came home, he helped me bring things in, and he put them away and I did a few small things to help. Now I'm going to go plotz on the bed.

PS I started the manual update to the April 2018 Windows Update before I left. It's still in the downloading phase, at 18%. This may be an all-night sort of thing. Okay, again, time to just collapse on the bed, listen to music and pretend my back still likes me. Oh, and maybe take a couple of those tizanidine pills. :)
