Wasn’t really able to get over that hump today. 😕 Enough sleep (pretty much, anyway) just not enough energy. I didn’t have anything that I “had” to do today, but when I woke up I decided that I wanted to go in town to knock out a couple more chunks of 360 degree video. 📹🤓 A little after 11am I went to grab the camera to go, but realized that I hadn’t charged it up since the last time I used it.
I plugged it up and then relaxed on the floor in front of the space heater for what I assumed would be like a half hour or so, but as often happens – I conked out and didn’t wake up for another three hours. (I guess I didn’t recharge properly either… heh) It’s frustrating, since that nap actually felt like it stole energy from me rather than giving it, but after about 20 minutes I was able to get my butt into gear and head into town. 😏
I drove a bunch of the east side, and a little bit out on Sheridan drive, so I actually covered more area than I expected today. I figured since it was around the time when folks were getting off work, that the roads might be a little too busy for leisurely recording, but it ended up working out. 🤷🏻♂️🙂 Ended up with a couple twelve-minute videos and then a third nine-minute one. They’ll likely be uploading most of the overnight.
But even getting out and doing that, getting some sunlight and air, I just never got to where I felt like I was “up and going” for the day. 😟 Energy started low, stayed low, and is still low right now at 9pm. Meh… hopefully it’s just today, and maybe I’ll be able to shake it off tomorrow. I sure miss how I used to feel when I was younger, less banged up, and less cut into though. 😞 I suppose “slowing down” is just what happens, at various levels, but I still wanna try to figure out how I can force a little more pep into my step on the daily.
(I’ve got a couple appointments coming up soon re: my more serious health stuff, so we’ll see what they say… 🤷🏻♂️😳)
And I forgot to mention that Athena stopped by the other day for a visit. Not really for me, but for Maggie. Athena still counts as Maggie’s mom, since she was her cat for several years before Cassi had to take over for a bit… so it was nice when Maggie ran right up to her to get some attention, with Athena only having to say her name once. 😸 And while Maggie’s a friendly cat, she’s also really nervous… so you could tell that Maggie definitely remembered her, the way she wanted to say “hi” like that, without any anxiety, before heading back off into the house somewhere… showing that she’s also quite happy with her “new” home. 😊
