Almost went to bed without writing an update. Today is one of those days where I’m feeling exhausted. I was okay during most of the day, but something hit me in the afternoon — I had the strong desire to rest. I did just that and a few hours later, I woke up.
Unfortunately, I slept through an important call I had scheduled. Sigh. The call’s been rescheduled to Monday.
After waking up from that 1-2 hour nap, I still felt tired. I was also finding it hard to focus. I tend to have do my best thinking in the later morning, early afternoon.
Only 5 hours of sleep last night didn’t help. I need to do better. I will try to go to bed around 10-11 instead of 1-2. I think it will help.
I would also like to get into the habit of working in first thing in the morning. This will be difficult. I feel like it’s what my body wants. I naturally wake up around 5am, but the lazy Raymond takes over and I fall back to sleep — or check my phone — until 8-9.
I visited an eye doctor today in Yerevan. The scheduling process was easy. I called the number, got a same-day appointment, and paid $20 to get my eyes checked. So easy.
The good news is I have 20/20 vision at 40 years old, but the thing I actually wanted to get looked at was my dry and irritated eyes. She said it’s not serious or an infection. My eyes are simply not producing enough moisture as they used to. The remedy is 1-2 drops 4 times a day. I have tried using drops before, but not so frequently. Thus begins a new habit.
This wraps up today’s not-so-exciting post about getting older.
