a welcome fatigue

I'm sorry for not posting for a few days. I have been so very tired, but in such a good way.

My old tired was due to lack of sleep.

My new tired is involves getting sleep (!) in a few hour bits here and there. It's been such a blessing to start feeling rested enough to have a foothold and then begin feeling better and better.

Since then I've been adding many more good things. I can walk longer and farther. I have had a few more visitors. And I was able even to go to get a much needed massage! (I've been to this massage therapist for years because of neck pain and back spasms - this time she was a miracle worker on my hips and low back)

The very nature of the weekend is that I have Neil around all day - that is wonderful but draining as well. I'm not used to having people around all the time!

So you can see why I chose rest over internet posts again and again. Thankfully my fatigue has been the result of healing and I'm being careful not to over-do things.

Now that the week has re-set, I'm back to having my day to myself. (oh and there's the watching Mad Men on netflix between writing thank you notes and trying to nap). I keep doing my gentle neck stretches and patiently await my daily walks... so I can go to bed tired yet again.

thank you for all of your continued thoughts and prayers!


  1. I am glad your new tired is not due to lack of sleep (for both of our sakes). What is next in the queue for tv shows to blow through? Treme? Boardwalk? Maybe just college basketball and the NFL? Just wondering

  2. So glad to read your update! I am happy that you are tired in a good way and also getting some more sleep. Maybe the cooler fall weather will also help with this.

    Hugs, Gabby

  3. Until Netflix posts season 5 of Mad Men - I will anxiously await college basketball season.

    I will also probably watch Felicity. A show I never got into when it actually aired but I hear its great and since the foggiest part of my memory is college years, I may as well fill in gaps with Keri Russell and her NY love triangle.

    And Gabby - this is hand-down my favorite season of the year. I'm LOVING the bit of chill in the air so very very much!

  4. Yay for sleep! I'm glad the massage therapist was able to help the hips and lower back.

    Fall is a wonderful season- turning of leaves, fall sports, crisp air, and all things pumpkin flavored. Have a good week!
