It has been a tiring weekend.
I slept in Saturday morning with reading, napping, reading, napping, etc. until noon. Then I had to get out of bed. My niece had a high school graduation party. I wanted to try something cutesy with cash. Thus a mortarboard and a diploma. Whew, precision folding and creasing is exhausting! After the party, I came home to do a couple of loads of laundry. And a bit of going through old boxes of stuff.
I had a fitful night of sleep due to knee pain. It doesn’t hurt if I don’t move. But I toss and turn when I am asleep, then the pain wakes me up. I was going to say pain in the a**, but the pain is due south.
Daughter had laundry, so I said she could do it at my house. She started a load and then promptly fell asleep. She said she had little sleep the night before, then got up and ran 7 miles in the cool dawn air, and all before meeting me for our 8:00 breakfast.
This is what exhaustion looks like. (When I showed Daughter this picture, her comment was “I hate you.” But she did give me permission to use it, if you count “ughhhhhhhh fine” as permission.)
In the meantime, I am still sorting through stuff and found a $20 Target gift card! Woot woot! After a bit, and after nap time is over, we head off to Target to spend $$. I knew exactly what I wanted. Vitamin Water Zero, orange flavor. I love this stuff and it helps me drink more fluids.
While walking in Target, I felt some serious twinges in my right knee. Hmmm, my left knee is the bad one. We get home and part way down the stairs, I have to stop and ask Daughter to fetch my cane.
The rest of the afternoon was spent watching Gone Girl (the book is better of course) and nursing a sore knee.
It is now dark and I am exhausted too. Pain is tiring. I am glad I am working from home tomorrow. Think I will be icing the ole joint.
