It is almost 4:00 AM. I slept for a couple of hours, when the pain woke me up. I made a pot of decaf, folded some laundry, took some Ibuprofen, and I am watching Curiosity Incorporated. Alex is checking out a Volkswagen Beetle from 1968 that he discovered in a storage shed.

I find distraction to be an important element of pain management. Something to think about besides that I hurt.

Time for more coffee. Maybe I will have a pear too.
