And That’s What’s Really Going To Matter For The Next Few Days

August 12, 2021

So how am I doing? (Aside from being annoyed at life, I mean.)

As I predicted/feared . . . I don’t know.

Some of my signs are good, and some of my signs, while not bad, are decidedly less good, so I think I’m almost fully recovered, but I’ve been there before, you know?

If nothing else, I’m well enough to get us prepped for our first Tropical Storm of the season, so there is that.

I’ll Keep You Posted

July 29, 2021

As I’ve been alluding to off and on for a while now, I have been . . . unwell for some time. It’s nothing dramatic or dire, just . . . persistent, and I’d say currently I’m operating at about 75% capacity. I’d say this would mean full recovery is finally on the horizon, but I’ve thought that so many times at this point that I’m just going to admit that I don’t know.

What I can tell you is that at the moment I’m well enough to cautiously test out if a return to a more or less normal activity level triggers another setback or not, and so far that’s been going well.

That’s Supposed To Happen Tonight

November 11, 2020

After two days of dealing with one flood/water related issue after another, I’m taking the day off before the rains start again.

So Not Great, But It Could Be A Lot, LOT Worse!

June 16, 2020

On a personal note, I’m doing alright so far, but there are times I feel a bit like that guy who was across the bay from Pompeii in 79 AD.

I’m Fine, Just A Bruise And A Scrape On One Elbow (But My Pride May Take Some Time To Recover)

January 20, 2020

Speaking of overconfidence . . . 

Here’s a pro-tip for you:  If you’re trying to sit in a hammock in the dark, pay more attention to what you’re doing than to the antics of the ecstatic happy puppy at your feet lest you suddenly find yourself “Gilligan’s Island-ing” heels over head to land on your elbows on the concrete beneath you.

I’m Just So Happy About This

December 12, 2019

Today I feel really bad.

This is good.

(While I’ve certainly expressed the “I feel bad, but no longer terrible” sentiment before, never before have I expressed it with such heartfelt relief.)

I’ll Talk To You Then

November 15, 2019

I was originally planning to do a lighthearted entry today, but . . . things changed.  It happens.

In the spirit of acceptance (a skill I’m still working on mastering), I’m just going acknowledge that things changed (and not for any reason more dire than one bad moment beyond my current tolerance level), and do my best to move on.

I’ll tell the lighthearted story next week.

I’m Leaning Toward Space Cowboy

October 31, 2019

Today’s To-Do List:

Decorate house enough to show we’re ready for trick-or treaters – CHECK

Cobble together a costume that doesn’t require me to shave – IN PROGRESS

I Am Absolutely Kidding About This, I Just Have A Mild Cold, So Any Ghastly Appearance Was A Preexisting Condition

October 30, 2019

The bad news is because I’ve been ill lately I haven’t been able to get the house decorated for Halloween.

The good news is because I’ve been ill lately I look ghastly enough that I won’t need a costume.

Today I’m Not Laughing

October 29, 2019

After posting yesterday, someone (having correctly divined that yesterday’s quote meant that I was indeed sick) recommended that I pack it in and go to bed early.  I laughed at this yesterday because I didn’t feel that bad, I was just have a bit of difficulty focusing.
