Though the toothache remained fairly low grade last night and I ultimately did not need to us either orajel or ibuprofen, I still felt fairly crappy all day, being queasy and having various random aches, along with the low grade toothache, so I didn't go out at all. I had a bit of fresh air in the back yard, where the mockingbird lingered for a couple of hours, but toward evening I felt tired and decided to lie down for a while and see if I could sleep some of the ache off. I did sleep for about three hours, but the aches remain.

In fact I was a bit disappointed to wake up, as there is always in the back of my mind the hope that I'll be the first person in my family to die peacefully in my sleep. So far most have lingered through months, if not years, of decline and increasing misery, except for a few who have come to violent ends through such things as car crashes. Every time I feel badly the thought comes that this could be the start of that unremitting decline, and I've missed my chance to get hit by a speeding bus or struck by lightning. But I don't suppose I'll get to die peacefully, as I'm not a character in a sentimental movie.

There's no information about a ride to Safeway yet this week, though I don't know if I'd be up to it anyway. There's no appointment with a dentist yet, either. Monday, I guess, for calling the dentist, and maybe a surprise ride to Safeway tomorrow. In the meantime I think the queasiness has subsided enough that I can fix some nice, soft yakisoba noodles for dinner. Thank goodness for microwaves.
