Sleep is good, headaches suck, and my new phone
Wednesday, June 08, 2011
Getting up yesterday was still rough, but not as bad as Monday. My workout was interrupted by a crazy neighbor telling me about all the thieves, vandals and other nefarious types he stops in our neighborhood. He also told me about the .45 he carries to protect us all. Oh... and all about his family's holdings in Exxon-Mobil. I work with unstable people daily at the library, so I smiled and nodded at the stock discussion. I had to stop myself from asking "if you own so much of Exxon, then why are you living here?" Pretty sure that wouldn't have gone over well. It says something about my neighborhood that I find it easier to believe him about the bad stuff than the good.
Getting up today was easier than Monday by a long shot. Getting to bed by 10 pm 2 nights in a row is awesome. Too bad my head hurt so bad this morning. I tried to jog anyway, but that didn't work out so well. I'd planned on going for 2-3 miles, but between the pounding head every time I jogged and the speed at which I walked, I only managed to go for 1.25 miles. Oh well, some is better than none, right? I'm pretty sure it's allergies since it's all sinus pressure. I'll take some decongestant in a sec to see if that helps.
I also got a new phone. I "sold out" and got an iPhone. Even though they had the white one in stock and it was the same price as the black one, I bought the black one. It was for a shallow reason, though - most of the accessories are designed to go with the black ones! So far it's been fun to play with. I also really like the sparkpeople app. I ordered an armband to wear when I'm jogging so that I don't have to worry about dropping my phone. It should be here soon.
