After work on Tuesday I left the courthouse around 1:30 in the afternoon, went to a party store and picked up a container of Mardi Gras beads for $15 and change. I forgot to bring the cat support with me, but I went down to the old place and left a note explaining I'd drop by on Wednesday along with a couple beads. After that I drove to Bloomfield, where I received my first speeding ticket in decades, and hung five beads on Bloomfield's car since I didn't want to disturb them. A long drive later I was on Long Beach Island, went up a few blocks and dropped off some beads for my friend there. My next stop was my support group and I was only a few minutes late. Threw beads at everyone who arrived, we ate, caught up after being away thanks to the COVID omicron variant surge, but I started to get a headache which precipitated anxiety. Someone gave me one of their Motrin, supposedly it's 800mg of ibuprofen, and that helped me. The rest of the night was pleasant but I didn't get home 'til 11-ish at night.

Winds up I drove 300+ miles.
