Giraffe Report

So, today was pretty much forfeit. *sigh* I could probably blame it on everything I did yesterday, which might be true, but it’s also possible that it’s random.

Yesterday, I got up and my blood sugar was a little low, so I went to Starbucks for breakfast. I came back home and danced around the living room for a while. Then, I got to meet a friend who has been living out of state and celebrate her little girl’s first birthday with the family. I’m *so* excited they will be moving back soon! We were there about 3 hours or so, and then it was time for her daughter to take a nap. I was ready for a nap, too. My stamina is nothing like it used to be!

But, I had a whole list of things I intended to get done, so I went about my day. First, I stopped at Home Depot to get some supplies so that I can fix the window in my bathroom shower. I wandered all over the store and had about 5 different employees help me, but I think I finally left with everything I needed. I was *exhausted*.

Grocery store next. I had made up a grocery list and was determined to get everything I planned, although I felt so bad that I was sagging on the cart as I shopped. So thirsty! I think I got 15 different beverages, just because. I had a caffeinated energy drink in the parking lot.

Once home, I put away the groceries and started tackling the window. I knew that if I stopped then, nothing would get done. I quit after applying the caulk, since it needed to dry for a while, and resolved to finish tomorrow (today).

I talked to a friend on the phone, took a short walk, had dinner, watched some TV, then went to bed.

Today, I also had a lot of plans. However, I wasn’t feeling well, so I stayed in bed later than I had anticipated. I got up around 10:30 am and made lunch, and ate it on the couch watching TV. Then, I went back to bed. I got up again about 5 pm or so, feeling awful. Just exhausted and hurting and really bad arrhythmias. Everywhere from freezie cold to super hot; I don’t *think* I”m getting sick…

This blog post is about the extent of what I’ve done today. I have *so* much more that I need to take care of. *sigh* At least now, a few hours later, I only feel mildly exhausted and a little nauseated. I can work through that. My priorities right now are to finish up the bathroom (so I can take a shower in the morning!), and write my paper. If I have any more time, I’ll get to work processing my images from this weekend. Then, you’ll get to *see* what I’ve been up to!
