I continually think, “I should write a xanga (editor’s note: my old blog) about that!”Â Then I don’t.Â Sorry about that.Â 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.Â I was physically feeling so very good at the beginning of last week.Â Really—I can’t remember the last time I felt that healthy.Â Then a long week of training at the office left me wiped out again.Â Last night I seriously had thoughts about imminent visits to the ER; I was sure my obstruction was back.Â Thankfully today is better.Â My abdomen is still tender—but nothing like yesterday.
Exercise . . . I still don’t like it.Â I’m amazed at how much strength and endurance I’ve lost over the last few months.Â I’m sure being so sick hasn’t helped anything.Â Even though I don’t like it, I’m sticking with it.Â I know the results are important—even if I don’t see them.Â And those endorphins I’ve heard so much about?Â I think they’re in the same category as ROUSes.Â 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.Â I’m pretty convinced there’s no good chemistry.Â 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.Â Right now I’m OK with that.Â Really quite OK.
Baseball . . . Watching baseball on TV is much better when there’s a lot at stake.Â I’ve watched more TV baseball in the last week than I have all season.Â GO ROCKIES!!!!
Now I’m off to dig up that recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies.
