Yeah, I'm just not feeling it.  I'm sick with those damn infernal fall allergies.  I went to the doctor on Tuesday afternoon, got a shot of rocephin and a shot of steroids, plus Flonase and told I could double up on my Sudafed and Mucinex for 24 hours, and that I should be better.  Well, I doubled the pills Tuesday night, crashed at 945pm, woke up a short while later for tinkle time, then was up again at 12am, 1am, 120am, 2am, 3am, 320am, then was bright eyed and bushy tailed for the 520am alarm.  How in the world I didn't totally crash on Wednesday, after getting so little sleep Tuesday night, I will never know, but I managed to make it through the day.

Needless to say, due to sickness, I haven't made it to the gym this week.  That totally sucks!  I did still walk the dogs every morning for the usual .75miles, and this morning I did the 1.5mile walk to the pond and back.  I'm hoping I have it in me tomorrow to do that 1.5mile walk in the morning, but I've seemed to take a turn for the worse with this cold or whatever it is, and just don't know.  I'm coughing up a storm, that damn deep cough I get plagued with every year, so I'm gonna have to really kick it into high gear to get rid of this shit before Brian comes home.

Speaking of Brian coming home - he is back in the good old USA!!!  Not sure yet when he will be back home in GA, but at least we are back on the same time zone again.  I am so looking forward to him being home, I just can't stand it!  These last few days/weeks of him being so close but yet so far are worse than him being across the world!  The anticipation is driving me nuts!!!

Oh well I will just have to sit tight and wait....he will be here eventually.....nighty night folks.....

I know, I's been a while.....

Not even sure how long it's been since I last wrote - weeks?  Not much has been going on.  Dealing with crushing fatigue at times, I think some is the after effects of the surgery anesthesia, the rest?  I don't know.  I'm dealing with it by trying to push myself to go to the gym and walking the dogs on longer and longer walks.

I didn't keep up with the walking 1.5miles every day - I was so out of shape again after not doing a lot from surgery, it's taking me a while to build the endurance back up.  I do the long walks on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and manage to go about .75miles most mornings with the boys, provided they don't lolly-gag too much. 

I tried the new Turbo class last Wednesday night, also called 3G - Glutes, Guns & Guts.  I did interval on Thursday, and the new Power class on Friday.  Wed's Turbo really wore my glutes out, and my guns were shot by Friday.  Next week the interval class will be back on Tuesdays, so if I go to each of the classes I like, I will be at the gym Tuesday through Saturday most weeks, and still be walking 1.5miles a day on Saturday & Sunday, and .75miles Monday through Friday. 

We hit the farmers market Saturday - got some more butterbeans, crowder peas, and picked up 40lbs of sweet potatoes for $10.  Got the beans and peas canned, and Momma Clydie will be working on the sweet potatoes a little at a time during the week.    And I don't know if I mentioned this before, but the food saver that I bought back in the late spring - that was the best $50 I think I have ever spent.  We have a small chest freezer that is chock full of veggies and sliced peaches, sealed up courtesy of the food saver.  It comes in handy when we buy bulk meat and separate it into normal meal-sized portions.  So much better to buy in bulk for that stuff!

I am starting to get really excited - my hubby will be home soon!!!  I cannot wait until he gets home!!!
