I have not been well this past week. Had a flu shot last Friday (and they usually zap me for a couple of days), had some nasty dental work Monday, I've been fretted over my Mom and related issues since getting crosswise with my big sister a couple of weeks ago* and maybe it's just the combination of all that. Maybe I'm feeling old. Next Spring, I'll turn 60 and I'm not ready for it. (Maybe I'll start over at 50 instead.)
But I haven't been 100% and neither has the blog. Sleeping most of the time, not eating much, getting nothing done. I'm not happy with this.
Time for more vitamins and coffee. Might not be a long-term fix but sometimes you need to use a cane for awhile before you start walking without one again.
* Something the two of us are very good at. It's easy for each of us to blame the other but I suspect it's the combination. We react like vinegar and baking soda, two harmlessly inert household substances that foam and fume when combined. Alas, we don't neutralize one another in the process but remain as base and acid as before.
