I was so run down the last few days, it’s been a horrible day. I only made it to the gym about three times this week, which is more than most of the population but not up to what expect from myself. Ever since yesterday, my whole body has been aching and I just had the feeling that I was going to be sick, I felt the fever coming on. I cam home last night and took a HOT shower for about an hour and then I just went to bed, that was about 8PM, then I end up waking up at 2:30 AM and I’m walking around the house like a zombie!
I miss the days when I would be sick and my Mom would take care of me, not in the traditional way, she usually thought I was faking and she would tell me to get up and go to work–my mother was something else. But then there were the times when I was literally sick as a dog, and she would make soup and and put the cold compress on my head to break the fever, or perhaps it was covering me with 100 blankets–she was a big believer in the ‘sweating it out’ cure to a fever. I can say that’s my answer also, anytime I feel like I’m going to be sick, I just take a hot shower and jump under a bunch of blankets, which is exactly why I actually feel pretty good right now. Then again, I haven’t ventured out of my house today and tomorrow it’s going to be cold which probably will not help my condition!
I assume I just needed some rest, I have been pushing it really hard at both ends, between work–actually WORK most of the time this week. I’m trying to bang out some deals since I’ll be away ALL of August cruising on the Mediterranean. I started watching Rick Steves’ Europe, I’ve always read about his adventures and I know he’s got a crap load of guide books, but the tv show is actually pretty good. He travels with a 2 man crew and evidently it takes them about 6 days to film an episode, it makes me want to go out and buy his guides, hell who am I kidding, I WILL go out and buy his guides for the trip in August.
You know what’s funny is after watching these pieces, you feel as if you’ve been to the the area shout out to Rick Steves (www.ricksteves.com) and Hulu Plus, man is there anything they don’t have on there? One of the shows I watched was when he went to Poland, he went to Warsaw ans Auschwitz, and told the story of Kristalnacht, it was very sad. I still get bummed out when I think about the Holocaust and all the innocent people who were exterminated for no reason at all. It’s hard to believe that happened not in my lifetime, but it wasn’t that long ago in the grand scheme of things. We should NEVER forget!
Then I read my friend Angela (www.pureleighliving.com) post about her friend Kyle and I got a little bummed about my friend Eileen. We had an argument around Christmas time and it was pretty bad. It seemed worse than others that we had, I won’t go into the minutiae of the details, but it’s done and nothing to do about it. I’ve made my apologies and have moved forward, it’s up to her if she chooses to forgive me someday. It’s so rare to have friends whom you can go years without talking to and then seemingly talk to each other after not speaking to one another for a while and just pick up as if nothing had happened! Makes me shake my head, but this too will pass right?
