obligatory “i’m still around” post

As you can probably tell from the blog, I haven’t been feeling very chatty lately.

I’m still not feeling 100% myself after my illness.

I’m tired of being cold.

I’m sick of gray skies and general dreariness.

Don’t even get me started on my career. I have been giving that shit a lot of thought. Chances are there will be (even more) big changes this year. Some people won’t like them.

My husband is currently on a plane – final destination: San Antonio. I already miss him.

I had a high carb day yesterday at the beer festival, and I am paying for it today. My body hates me right now. I mean…it always hates me, but like even more than usual.

My (new) doc prescribed Trazadone for my insomnia, and I think it’s working. The true test will be tonight. I always sleep very poorly when D is away.

I need to get back to exercising. I had sort of given up the last couple of weeks since I was on a strict 6 week ban post-surgery, but that’s no longer an issue, so…

D wants to run the GO STL 1/2 marathon in April, and has asked that I sign up for the 10k. I think it’s a good idea for me – so I need to get to training. I’m a bit worried my knees can’t handle running the entire thing, but we’ll see.




I woke up still feeling absolutely awful. I’m actually kind of glad, because it means postponing the surgery was the right decision.

I really, really hope my husband manages to avoid coming down with this. I’d hate for him to be sick while he’s on work travel.

I’m going back to bed. Fuck this.
