Thursday - Cool and clear, rainy at night
An okay day.
I woke up this morning before 7. F got up and used the washroom and then I did. As I came back to bed, I realized that I had a headache. It wasn’t a hard painful one, more like someone had stuck a knife in my brain. It didn’t hurt much, but it felt like something was there!
When I got up later I had some tea and breakfast and watched House. I didn’t get dressed when I normally do, so when the doorbell rang I was asleep and still in my pyjamas on the couch. It was after 11, so I checked the door-cam…and it was a postal worker. I told him I’d be a minute, hurridly got dressed and got my big box of Christmas stuff from my sister.Yay.
I napped a little longer and never did a workout. I just wasn’t feeling it today.
In the afternoon I scanned some of my incoming cards and around 4:30 went to the post office to mail off my stuff. I walked out considerably poorer, but a couple of smaller presents and all of my international Christmas cards are now on their way. Hurray for that.
When F called it was annoying because he uses an earpiece/microphone on his phone. It seems to pick up all the ambient noise around him and channels it straight into my ear. With a headache it wasn’t pleasant.
We went out for dinner tonight. We planned to go to his favourite fish restaurant, but there was no parking when we got there. F suggested another restaurant that’s a little pricy, so I countered with Pisolino, the buffet Italian restaurant. It costs about the same as the pricy place, it was closer and I had a 500 yen coupon for it. We went there!
We each had a pasta dish…I had a pepperoncino with pork and yuzu kosho sauce, F had carbonara. He had a pizza too, teriyaki chicken. I did have a couple of smaller pieces of that. I filled up my plate with salad and tried to avoid most fried food, but did have some carrot soup and then dessert. I didn’t feel like I had too much food when I left, but F did. I think he shouldn’t have had the carbonara with the pizza.
We bought groceries and then came home. F is going to make nabe tomorrow night, a pork and chicken one. I think it’ll be nice.
We watched some TV, F watched Shameless with me, he laughed a bit at it, which surprised me because he has been avoiding it for years.
And that’s it. I still have that weird headache. It’s not too bad now, but hopefully it’ll bugger off overnight. Come back later on and find out what happens. Until tomorrow….
