Writing just to write
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
I don't have much to say today. I am trying to get in the habit of writing every day, though, so I'm going to say something.
I am tired. Yesterday, after I had been working for about 11 hours, my body got very physically tired. My arms and legs were moving as though they were swimming in jello. My back, elbows, thighs, and hips ached. At the time, it seemed weird. I couldn't figure out how I could be so tired. Now, it seems obvious that I was tired because I was working so much. It's been nearly 10 years since I've done work this physically demanding, of course it's going to take its toll. Dreams of bathing in epsom salts got me through the rest of the night. But, when I came home and tried the bath, I couldn't get the water hotter than lukewarm. This is the 4th bath I've had that was too cold and couldn't get warmer again. Before I thought something had changed in our water heater, but now that I've taxed the water heater over and over again with multiple showers, dishwasherings, etc. there is something clearly just wrong with having hot water in the bathtub. And I work again in 2 hours. In theory, I could work out this morning in the two hours I have before work. It would make me happier, but there is no way that's going to happen. I'll be lucky if I ride my bike to work. Just sooooooo tired. Will be happy to have some rest.
