Hot Hot Mess

My dreams continue to be so vivid and gripping these days. On one hand it’s fantastic to be able to have a cinematic experience while I’m asleep, and on the other hand it’s really annoying to wake up from it. With that being said, I don’t think I would ever trade in my dreams for consistently good nights of sleep.

As I’m writing today’s journal entry I feel very, very sleepy. It felt even hotter than yesterday but I had to go to the gym so naturally it felt even hotter. I wore a tank top for my workout because I was determined not to overheat. Walking home from the gym was a hazy, hot mess as I stopped periodically to catch pokémon, but the sun was so strong overhead that I had to swing by the shops and get popsicles. I mean, how else was I meant to cool down when it’s that hot outside? Luckily the popsicles were cheap and cheerful which was exactly the type I was looking for. I stood outside the store and ripped open the box, tearing open one of the rocket-shaped ice pops and shoving the rest in my tote bag. The popsicle had somehow completely disappeared by the time I got home, although something tells me it wasn’t completely due to the heat.

Today is my 55th mensiversary with my husband, by the way! If you don’t know what a mensiversary is, it basically just means we’ve been together for fifty-five months. In celebration he bought me some flowers and my favorite chocolates, and for dinner we treated ourselves to a hefty serving of mashed potatoes and an escalope. Nothing too extravagant, but it is really nice to acknowledge these milestones and treat ourselves.

In other news, I called up Ashtead hospital today to see if they received the referral for my tonsillectomy but it turns out that they have not. This whole situation is really annoying because now I’m beginning to think that my surgery won’t be scheduled until the end of August or sometime in September. If the surgery gets pushed back any further it’ll totally ruin my plans for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Hopefully the surgery gets bumped up to mid-August, but I’m not going to hold my breath. I’ll have to do a bit of chasing to make sure the referral gets sent out and that I actually do get booked in for the surgery, so wish me luck with all of that in the next week or so!
