I noticed that it's been over a week since I wrote anything; where has the time gone? That's what happens when you're both busy and feeling down. The weather for the past couple of weeks has been miserable; low single digits at night and highs in the high teens and (on occasion) the low twenties. This has a tendency to make those of us prone to joint ailments very unhappy. Today I had the added joy of going outside at 7:30 AM and 5 degrees, and find a flat tire. Have you ever changed a tire in single digit weather with a bad back and an arthritic knee?
The heart doctor changed some of my pills the other day; after a couple of days of light palpitations, my ticker seems to have evened out, at least for now.
Nietzsche once said: "What does not kill him, makes him stronger". He didn't know what he was talking about; what does not kill me usually just makes me feel like shit, not stronger. You'll have to excuse my mood; sometimes I get this way. I'll probably do better tomorrow, I just feel like I had to blow off a little steam today.
Saturday is my birthday; the grand age of 55 (w00t). I think I'll go to the gun show on that day and try to cheer myself up. If that doesn't work, maybe a couple of beers and a steak for dinner will do the trick. Have a good one, people...
