Sunday and Monday
Monday, June 01, 2015
My Sunday ended up being kind of a "lost" day, due to some extreme fatigue. Didn't get much of anything done, and it seemed like it took me forever just to get my grocery shopping list done and my coupons ready. Usually, if I take a nap, I try to do it early in the afternoon so that it doesn't interfere with my sleep, but I put it off until after 3pm. I tried by then to resist the urge, but I was so tired I just had to give in, and ended up taking a 2 hour nap. And although it did make it harder to fall asleep when I went to bed for the night, I am feeling better today. I think it was just all the activity from the earlier in the week; being "on the go" more than I am use to, and all the changes to my usual daily routine.
I've been having a flareup of the bone pain in my left hip for over a week too, and the pain radiates down to my knee. I've been having to take my pain meds a little more often than usual. I think part of it is all the crazy changes in the weather again. We went from having hot and humid weather, a few rainy days, and now nights getting cold enough that there is a risk of frost.
We had frost advisories last night and I had to cover up a few plants, and we have advisories out for tonight too. Looking at the forecast for the rest of the week, I think there will be advisories for tomorrow night too.
Had my usual standing order at the lab to check my CBC; hemoglobin was 11.6, it was 11 last week, so that means it's holding steady.
Penny also took me grocery shopping. I was smart this time and used an electric cart, having learned my lesson last week about trying to walk around in a huge store with the hip pain issues. And because I used the cart, I wasn't as sore and tired when I got home, and I even had enough energy for a chair workout this afternoon.
