I've been awake since just after 7 a.m., but I've managed to get nothing much done, thanks to the effects of the gabapentin. I have to make this very short, because we are down to the line, as it were, and tomorrow will be eaten up packing the storage unit, and Wednesday is when the movers come. We won't have time to get our breath until Thursday. At least the sun is coming out now, after I woke to an overcast sky.

Packing all day yesterday. Plus a trip to Lowes to get more boxes, bubblewrap, and tape. Almost all the pictures are down off the walls now.

Last night, after Night 2 of spaghetti (the last evening meal we are likely to cook here), and after more packing, we watch the lastest Parts Unknown on CNN, and then a special tribute to Anthony Bourdain.


10:03 p.m.

Gabapentin is weird stuff. I took it once 4 years ago to treat sciatic pain and couldn't get out of bed the next morning to go to work. I swore I would never take it again.

A few months ago I had a relapse of sciatica and after an ineffective epidural shot, I reluctantly tried it again to help me sleep despite the pain. It did just that, with barely any noticeable side effects, just a sort of pain dulling. I took 300mg every night for two or three weeks, never suffering any day-after side effects.

In the dozing of what felt like seconds, I dreamt you picked me up in a car to take me to the movies. Except I didn't know we were actually going into the hills of my childhood home. You wore an orange cap, and we went on a pilgrimage amongst an outing of people belonging to different factions we neither felt comfortable with or willing to fit in. After a tram-like ride on rails through the trees, I woke up both relieved and disappointed.
