Me! Well sure, it’s my blog after all so of course it’s brought to you by me. Okay, that was lame. Lamer than lame. Cut me some slack, I’m grasping for ideas here.
The following was drafted yesterday (Tuesday) but as you can see it’s late. Sorry about that.
Physical therapy last night was a bitch. A cold, steely eyed bitch with a sadistic streak. I tossed and turned all night with achy legs. The ice pack helped eventually but sleep was still elusive and when my alarm went off this morning I wanted to cry. A year ago I might have called in sick. However, the whole point of having the surgery and doing the rehab is to NOT be a cripple. Yeah, I realize it’s a process and I’m not all the way there yet. But I can’t wimp out every time I hurt. So I got up, took painkillers, set my cell phone alarm for about 2 hours and went back to bed. Heck, if I still felt like crap in 2 hours I could always call in sick then.
After tossing and turning some more, mixed in with a little sleep — I seem to recall dreaming at one point so I must have slept — I got up and still felt lousy. But I put one foot in front of the other and started getting ready. There’s always time to call in but there are only so many trains departing for Seattle and if I miss the last one I have to take a bus. That is so not happening if I can help it!
And here I am at my desk blogging! How about that! I hope your Tuesday got off to a better start!
