More neglect. Today was a heavy work week. I finished my last freelance job for the summer, and I finished one of my professional projects, the one that has been hanging over me for about 18 months. Now I can concentrate on preparing for Fall semester. I need to get my act together and record a couple of weeks of lectures for my classes.
Right now, I’m sleepy. My knee was a little swollen yesterday, so I stayed off the roads. I take an anti-inflammatory for my ankle two weeks on, two weeks off, and I’m in the middle of the two weeks off right now. I think it is masking a minor knee issue. The knee acts and feels swollen, but I just don’t see much. In any case, it is feeling week, especially after I have been sitting for a while.
Why sleepy? I decided to move around a bit this morning with a plan to run if it felt okay. That meant filling the bird feeder, and while I was out there, I did some weeding in the garden. Eventually, I decided I was ready, so I started my lowest impact run, slow and steady. I made it around, but it wasn’t anything to write home about.
And of course, that’s exactly what I’m doing.
I returned home, showered, ate lunch, and crashed. I haven’t fallen asleep, but I didn’t have enough in me to even think about writing another chapter today. I’m just putzing around instead.
Next week, the meetings begin, and that is just a warm up for the marathon that will be Fall semester totally online.
There hasn’t even been much to watch out my window today. Maybe the whole world is dozing.
