But I don’t FEEL LIKE making a blog post! Ha, ha, just kidding. At least, I would in fact rather be reading others’ blogs right now, but I KNOW as a writer I must not wait till I am “in the mood” to write, anybody taking in a deep breath to make a self-righteous lecture to me can just stand down. In fact, I very often am in the mood to write, especially once my fingers hit the keys and I begin typing.
I have been having a not very good day, although it has had its moments. I have about a half hour right not to make my blog post before Steven arrives home from work and we head out to a Christmas party. Therefore, I shall attempt another Scattered Saturday post.
I realize that people who harp on their physical ills (as well as other negatives in their lives) are tiresome. However, I just want to mention that I once again have one of my Saturday headaches. How very annoying. Before you start shaking your finger or your head (or your booty) at me, no, I did NOT tie one on last night. That sort of headache can often be cured with some Gatorade and a nap. Well I did eventually get a nap and am sipping some Gatorade now, but they are far from the miracle I was hoping for. No matter, the headache seems to be fading away of its own accord, and I did not mean to write the whole blog post about it.
Then again, isn’t that always the way? Pain has a way of overtaking your life, and it is often all you can think of. Well, I shall drag my mind away from my petty pain.
I wrote four post cards to my usual people this morning. I walked to the post office with them. Alas, my dog, Spunky, did not accompany me. As I have said, he does not seem to enjoy long walks. More to the point, I went from the post office to Basloe Library for Coffee with a Cop. I’ll write a full blog post about that later. I walked home after the coffee and conversation, and immediately got into my vehicle and drove to The Medicine Shoppe in Ilion to pick up a prescription. While there, I ducked into Ilion Wine and Spirits for a bottle of wine for later (we still haven’t had the bottle I purchased on Shop Small Saturday; I’m saving it for an occasion).
Back home, I took the nap I mentioned earlier. When I got up, I put on running clothes and ran in place on the mini tramp for forty minutes, the longest I have run in a very long time. There is a 5K in Little Falls next weekend I may run. Stand by for numerous Running Commentary posts this week while I prepare.
I think I still have time to read a blog or two. Happy Saturday, everyone.
