Yarn!!!! (And other stuff)

So, no post yesterday. Sorry about that. I overslept. Well, first of all, I couldn't fall asleep Friday night despite being exhausted. And then by the time I finally was able to drift off a huge, loud thunderstorm started, thus scaring Oreo and keeping me awake. Sigh. So, the whole "wake up in the mornings" plan has already been derailed. Yay, delayed sleep phase syndrome strikes again.

Last night I managed to go to sleep fairly early, but I was exhausted and so slept until 1:30 today. And even then I didn't want to get up.
But, hubby took me for lunch. And then I found out about a neighborhood yard sale that included yarn, so we walked over there (about a mile). I scored some excellent yarn - alpaca/wool blend and pure wool. Then we walked back and took a long rest by the botany pond and watched a whole dozen ducks napping on the edge of the pond and some young rats swimming around the lily pads. I am absolutely dragged out though.

So much for the idiots who say things like "well, if you were just more active/exercised more you'd feel better." I'm afraid it doesn't work that way.

I actually had a nurse use that "you'd feel better if you got up and exercised" line on me while I was in the hospital. The day I got out of ICU. When I couldn't walk.

Sounds like you had a fun day, though, exhaustion notwithstanding.

Ahhhh! At least people have sort on an excuse with me and the exercise thing - I don't *look* all that sick most of the time. But fresh from ICU!?!?!?! Gahhhhh!!!!!

I did have a pretty fun day. And now I'm sitting on the couch with Oreo, eating Cheetos - a lovely end to the day. :P
