i watched Morning Joe without turning on my computer. i have only checked my email, oh maybe ten times instead of twenty. i uninstalled Facebook from my tablet, and Twitter. i did some work while listening to the American Boys Choir. i took Lulu for a walk this morning. i straightened up the house a bit and i went out for lulu's medicine, also sodas. i cooked burgers and fries for lunch.
i liked walking warming up the muscles. it feels right and good but it's another one of those things of why don't i do this every day if it makes me feel so good? i think the answer must be just do it when you want and don't worry about the rest of the time. this is also my view of nutrition and health advice--just do what seems appropriate and ignore all the "advice" that constantly pops up in the news. they do not know much. i eat what i want, with balance. i had a chocolate fudge sundae and now i really really want a Subway oatmeal cookie. or three. but i won't have that i will wait until tomorrow and if i want that then i will eat that then i will just do what seems appropriate my gut is liking me at present.
i am still in the midst of the flu first infection second exhaustion third and my skin is infected but even with each health blah blah that pops up it in no way compares to when i was just fat sick. because that is what it was. FAT SICK. and NO MOVEMENT sick. but i'll not reflect more on this right now. reflecting can cause problems. deflecting is better.
i talked to a financial adviser today and pulled out some money to do house repairs. i am basically going to pay someone to do all the things that Dale wants to do but never does. his intentions are very good and so are mine but we are not those do it yourself people no DYI here. there it is.
i am wondering about Xmas. i want to focus on church and not on shopping. i am wondering about a Xmas party. i am wondering about putting together a vacation for me and Dale in the spring. he wants to go to Colonial Williamsburg and that is fine by me. i have decided not to put too much thought and drive drive to be perfect into travel. i want to just travel. it doesn't have to be perfect. i just need to be with Dale and have a comfortable bed if possible. the important thing is to relax.
enough about the day. there's not been much to it. i did try to settle down and read but couldn't stay awake. afternoon is not the best time for reading. and mentioning reading. i want to learn. i am going to read this book i read about, a book on economics. i should like this very much. at this late point in my life, i've decided not to be intellectually lazy for i have been very intellectually lazy for most of my life.
i both want and do not want to teach next semester. i want the money but i'd rather not the headache. my brain is blistering with the effort. but next semester might not be so bad.
