I continually think, “I should write a xanga (editor’s note: my old blog) about that!” Then I don’t. Sorry about that. Some of those ideas will get saved for another post or two . . . today’s update is just a little of this and a little of that.
Up and Down . . . that’s how I’ve been feeling lately. I was physically feeling so very good at the beginning of last week. Really—I can’t remember the last time I felt that healthy. Then a long week of training at the office left me wiped out again. Last night I seriously had thoughts about imminent visits to the ER; I was sure my obstruction was back. Thankfully today is better. My abdomen is still tender—but nothing like yesterday.
Exercise . . . I still don’t like it. I’m amazed at how much strength and endurance I’ve lost over the last few months. I’m sure being so sick hasn’t helped anything. Even though I don’t like it, I’m sticking with it. I know the results are important—even if I don’t see them. And those endorphins I’ve heard so much about? I think they’re in the same category as ROUSes. I don’t believe they exist.
Male-type people . . . the one I asked about regarding butterflies a while ago—well, he hangs around the fringes of my life. I’m pretty convinced there’s no good chemistry. I have a feeling he thinks the same, since he only calls when there’s somewhere he wants to go and (as far as I can tell) doesn’t want to go alone. Right now I’m OK with that. Really quite OK.
Baseball . . . Watching baseball on TV is much better when there’s a lot at stake. I’ve watched more TV baseball in the last week than I have all season. GO ROCKIES!!!!
Now I’m off to dig up that recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies.
