Not dead just busy and tired

Sorry for not updating the blog, but I have been running around like the proverbial decapitated chicken and then recovering like a sofa spud. Basically I have been bouncing between running like a madman and basically having to spend the day on the couch because my everything hurts. This is not a good situation by anyone’s standard.

Today I’m writing instead of couching, because yesterday I had to go by foot to get stuff taken care of, basically I had to pay my cell phone, and get some groceries I couldn’t get on regular shopping day. I ended up walking about 2 miles (1.9 miles to be precise) and the heat index was about 98°F. Now as per usual I didn’t feel anything but some mild discomfort as I did it, but when I woke up this morning feeling like I didn’t get any rest at all, totally washed out. After consuming the second quart of Gatorade I started feeling more like myself, and I’m about a third of the way through the third quart and almost feeling “right”. I still feel more like going back to bed than posting to my blog, but it’s not that draggy that I can’t function. And as for why I had to go out yesterday, if I didn’t pay my bill I would have lost service shortly after midnight, and I had a one day only deal for a free sandwich that I would have lost if I didn’t use it.

And if you’ll excuse me I really need to have a little lie-down again, because I also have had an inflamed tear duct because pollen. I tell you getting old ain’t for sissies.
