I need to go to sleep soon.

I got up briefly a couple of times in the morning, then got up for the day around 11:30 a.m.

I finished reading The Last Plane in the Sky.  It gave me a lot of emotions.

J. came for a surprise visit.  He and Mom went out again right away, to a Goodwill and to get spring water.  When he got back, he was watching football with Dad for a while.  We had lunch.  I got him to come upstairs so I could give him cologne samples without excessively bothering Mom with the scents.  A couple of samples of men's colognes that I had were from brands he liked, and were flankers of colognes he already used.  I hadn't been aware that he wore cologne.  I was happy to give him a few samples.

I also gave him my extra copy of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," which I'd been wanting to give him and forgetting to bring with me for some months.  I lent him Marvel Masterworks: Daredevil 1-10 and Marvel Masterworks: Iron Man 1-10.

I got more perfume samples.  Lots to sort.

I made it to Friday Night Friends.  We ate at a nice burger place.  We shopped at Bath & Body Works, and at Barnes & Noble.  I didn't buy anything.

I didn't sleep much at night, but I lay down again after breakfast.

I made it to my last physical therapy appointment in good time.

I should go to sleep soon.

I slept fairly late.  Thank goodness I didn't need to go anywhere.  I got out of the house around 2:00 p.m.  I sent off the perfume samples.  I went to Walmart.  I got clearance things from T.J. Maxx.  I stopped by the grocery store for things we were out of.

I should go to sleep soon.

I was up briefly at 5:30 a.m., but went back to sleep and slept far longer than I should have.  I got to my doctor's appointment fifteen minutes late, and his assistant had already left.  I was able to reschedule for the afternoon, fortunately.  I got lunch, and got Mom a birthday card.

I went to physical therapy, then to my rescheduled appointment.  I told Dr. L., the orthopedist, and his assistant that I was having a lot more low-pain days than high-pain days.  Dr. L. said that the cortisone shots had worn off by now, and so it was the physical therapy that was giving me that effect.  He said that I started getting a lot more high-pain days again, like I had when I saw him, to come back.  He also said to keep up with the physical therapy.

I think I conked out relatively early.  I woke up at 7-something a.m. for no apparent reason.

Mom and I got out and about in the morning, including to Target and the grocery store.  I had a quick lunch when we got home, and then made it to an appointment.  It was a much more productive day than I'd been having.

In the late afternoon and evening, I did more perfume sample swapping.  I'm having a lot of fun.  I'll try to get to the post office tomorrow.

I haven't been keeping up with staying in touch with real-life people too well, but J. called at 10:15 p.m. or so and we talked for some time.  He'd had bad knee pain during the week, with lots of swelling.  He went to the hospital mid-week, and then back the next day.  The second time he was there, a doctor drained one of several spots of fluid on his knee.  J. said he was trying not to look, but that the doctor got a good cupful just in that one spot.  Apparently the most likely cause of the problem is gout.  J. has had that in his toes for years.  He's on more gout medicine and an anti-inflammatory.

I have physical therapy tomorrow and should do my exercises at home tonight.  I also see the orthopedist in the late morning on Tuesday, so I need to go to bed relatively early.

I think I went to bed relatively early, and slept fairly well.  I appreciated the cooler weather we had at night.

Later: I finished editing job #1 for the weekend.

A few hours after that: I finished line editing job #2.

I did a little swapping of perfume samples in there.

I got some laundry done.  It was kind of a low-key day, but much more productive than I thought it might end up being.

My stomach was upset overnight, so my sleep was pretty broken.  I got up for the day at 11:20 a.m.

Later: I got some laundry done and participated a little in the perfume blog's "swapmeet."  Members swap samples or decants of perfume.

I went to bed around 2:00 a.m. and got up for the day at 9:30 a.m.

It's been a quiet day so far, but the Friday Night Friends are going to go get pizza at the market cafe at a grocery store.

Later: I made it for pizza.  It was nice to see everyone.  I'd seen B. very recently, and L.M. recently, and A.J. within the last few weeks, but others I hadn't seen over the summer.

After we had our dinner and conversations, with live music in the background, we called it a night.  I got some shopping done.
