Better Movement, Less Pain

When I got back from Imaging last night, I finished online and read the rest of the paper. I got to bed to read at 1:30am and read until 3:30am. I had to stop partway through a story -- probably a novella -- because I was so sleepy. I set the alarm for noon, but when it went off, I told Loki and Junie that I needed to sleep more and reset it to 1pm. I woke up at 4:15pm -- the alarm was unset, but I don't remember doing that.

I used just the muscle relaxant today and while there's pain in the muscle, it's not like it was. We were supposed to have snow this afternoon, which is one of the reasons I didn't worry about sleeping until I woke up, but now we're apparently having a small amount of snow at midnight, then changing to freezing rain at 3am, and then non-freezing rain about 10am. So the people who commute will have to be careful, but I'll probably be fine going to get the groceries tomorrow.

When I mentioned Kelly's article on how our brains are changing, I should have put in the link so you can read it yourself.

Giffords may be struck by an Arizonan law that would elect someone to replace her.

JP Morgan Chase has defrauded/foreclosed on lots of military families. When troops are active-duty, they get 6% interest on mortgages. Chase kept them at 9 & 10%, and foreclosed. They plan to pay everybody back (I think someone should check that) and the spokeswoman said something odd: "and while any customer mistake is regrettable, we feel particularly badly about the mistakes we made here". She probably means they made a mistake with a customer, but that's not what she said.

An interesting article on those group coupon companies.
