Auggghhh! I feel rotten.
We got back from Utah last Thursday night, very late. I didn't sleep well, and when I woke up Friday morning I felt crappy. So I took a sick day off of work and went back to bed. Saturday I felt fine, and did a 4.5 mile Scout hike around a local lake, then mowed the badly overgrown front and back lawns - a very sweaty activity as it was very humid. In retrospect, perhaps I overdid it.
Yesterday I woke up feeling like something the cat dragged in. I left church early and went back to bed, and last night I drugged myself with some Nyquil and went to bed early. The high temperature is gone, but I still feel crummy. Apparently I caught a cold at some point. So now I'm at home teleworking and sneezing all over my keyboard. I feel weary and tired.
Did you enjoy the organ recital above? I'm practicing being a retiree, when all I do all day is obsess over my own situation.)
When I was in Utah my son let me borrow his season 1 "Flight of the Conchords" DVDs. What a funny show! It's sort of a mix of Spinal Tap and the Monkees, with a bunch of New Zealand references thrown in (Bret and Jermaine are kiwis).
Anyway, I had a great time in Utah, as my Picasa photo album suggests. I couldn't get interested in any of the paperbacks I brought along, however. I started four books in a row and gave up on all of them. I am now reading "Out of the Storm - The End of the Civil War, April-June 1865" by Noah Andre Trudeau. This is the third and final installment on his trilogy of the final year of the Civil War. I just finished the account of Confederal General General Pickett's being late to the battle of Five Forks because of his participation at a shad bake. I noticed when I went to the Five Forks battlefield earlier this month that a local road was named "Shad Bake Road..." Perhaps that was where it was held.
