I’m alive!

Not very awake, but the gorgeous sunshine in Eugene today makes it much easier to keep my eyes open.  I’ve been hibernating lately.  Not really by choice, I just have a severe lack of energy.  Tests have been run, and all seem to be normal . . . I’ll bet that none of you ever expected I had anything normal about me, right?  Anyway, I’ve been working at ways to add energy back into my life.  You know you have quite a problem when you get up, have two cups of coffee while reading your email and the news of the day, and then have an overwhelming desire (or need) to head right back to bed.

I’ve been revamping my diet, adding in new vitamins and supplements, and trying to be more active.  On Friday, I took Ozzie out for our weekly walk with my sister and her dog.  It’s probably about eight miles, as we walk at about a 3-3.5 mph pace and it takes us 2.5 hours to make the round trip.  I usually take a nap when we get home, but too many things were happening, so I never did get my nap.  As a result, I was totally wiped-out yesterday.  I went to sew day with my friends, but barely managed to get anything done.  I did have a great time chatting though.  I came home, did a little cleaning and then sat down to watch a movie.  I woke in my chair at about 9:00 p.m. and decided I’d best call it a night.  I slept clear through till 9:00 a.m.!  I wish I could figure out why I am so freaking tired!

Anyway, it’s a beautiful day in Eugene and Ozzie dragged me out for our 3.5 mile walk this morning.  Took us an hour and it was very refreshing.  I feel the desire for a nap creeping up on me, but I refuse.  I’ve got a lot of things to get done today.  Quilts are piling up and they need to be quilted.  I must stay awake!  Hopefully, the sunshine and the coming of spring will snap me out of this hibernation phase.

  1. Welcome back, I was beginning to wonder when we would see you again on here. Have you changed any meds? Could that be what is making you so tired? You were feeling so much better when you went to Hawaii. Maybe that’s it, you need to move to Hawaii! LOL

    I remember when I lived in Oregon, I slept a lot, but that was due to sinus headaches. I have never lived anywhere else that I had headaches like that. Hope you are feeling much better soon.

  2. Hey Linda…. I was looking for your email to let you know about LAC. They had storms overnight in Texas (where are server is) and a bunch of sites are down. We’re just doing the waiting game now but hopefully it will be back up shortly. But since I’m here …… 🙂 I’ve been making green smoothies. I’ve been eating more than a pound of greens a day by mixing them up with fruit in a Vitamix. I’ve really acquired a taste for these now and they are such healthy drinks. Just thought I’d add that to your healthy eating discussion lol…
