I have made no progress in this venture. I think the problem is that I don’t seem to care anymore. And I don’t care about not caring either.
I have been really busy with this new job (school bus driver). I’m pretty sure that I like the job enough to keep it for a while. It wears me out though because I have to be up before the kids who ride the bus. So I’m up around 4 a.m.
I don’t know what bearing this has on me eating right. It would be just another excuse I suppose.
This morning I am emerging from a week with the worst cold I have ever experienced. And as luck would have it, it was Spring Break for the schools I serve. I wanted to enjoy the break just like the kids. Instead, I lay on the couch or in bed struggling to stay alive. At least, that’s what it felt like.
It began with a cough on Friday evening. Saturday, I was down for the count. I was in pain all over, sneezing, chilled to the bone, and wishing I could be someone else until this thing was over.
And for the cherry on top of it all, yesterday I discovered I somehow got Thrush, a fungal infection that babies usually get. At least that’s what I hope it is. I’m not accepting anything else! It is very painful. It’s no wonder that babies scream when they have it.
So, tomorrow is the end of my break. I didn’t have any fun. I’m back to work Monday morning. I’m not even gonna pretend that I intend to try to get back on track with diet or exercise because I just don’t care at the moment. Just glad I didn’t die this week.
Ai, I hope you’ll be better soon, Tony! Being sick is just the worst! I’m sorry you didn’t get to enjoy Spring Break, and here’s hoping you got yourself rightly diagnosed with Thrush. AND that all the discomforts, aches, and general feelings of being ill will pass soon.
