I’m slow. What can I say? In a typical timeline of symptoms where 99% of people will have had the thing show up within a predictable time frame, it will take me longer, and usually significantly longer. If I overexert, the muscle soreness takes two days to show up. What I thought was just a sun-sensitivity “sunburn” side effect has, alas, turned itchy. Took two days for my body to decide that everywhere that I was “sunburned” is now going to itch. Including my hair. Especially my hair. It’s not a maddening, claw yourself raw kind of itch, thank goodness. It’s just a niggling little itch. It’s annoying, but not driving me crazy.
Having drapes again means the quality of my sleep has gone up, and that’s been wonderful. If you can sleep “pedal to the metal,” that’s what I’ve been doing, and it’s been grand. It’s the thing I have needed more than anything, and I’ve been doing a lot of it. I’ve just blown off unpacking things or arranging the things I have unpacked. I have paths around boxes and I can get to everything I need to get to, so I’m not going to stress about it. I may get motivated to transfer my yarn stash to the under-bed boxes later and put those away, but then again, maybe not.
It’s still cold, and there is still snow on the ground. It’s in the high 30’s F/3.8 C at the moment. Supposed to get down to 4 F/-15.5 C tonight, but is supposed to warm up to the 50’s F/ 11+ C by Monday, which is when I have to go out again.
There’s this little noise I’ve been hearing. It sounds like dropping a small box of Legos onto a table from about six inches in height. It makes me smile. It’s the icemaker in my fridge dropping a load of ice into the collection container. I’ve had fridges with icemakers before, but never one that has the icemaker water line hooked up so that it actually works. The fridge in this apartment has a hooked up and working icemaker.
When the reverse osmosis water guy moved my undersink unit over to the new apartment, he hooked the icemaker’s water line into the RO water circuit, and it has been industriously making RO ice for days now. Not that I’m having ice in anything at the moment because it’s literally freezing outside, but I could if I wanted . . .
