Just Out of It…

Do you ever have one of those days where you just feel really out of it? I’ve been there since Thursday. I had a horrid migraine Thursday night, one that hurt so bad I had to turn the air conditioner down so it was cold, turn off all the lights, put an ice pack on my neck and sleep.

Friday was better, and while I wasn’t as social and spunky as I would have liked to be on Friday night, at least the migraine didn’t return.

I had a headache most of the day yesterday, and this feeling of being out of it settled in. Excedrin is my friend. Alegria was wonderful – I really enjoyed it. My favorite part of any circus are the acts like the trapeze, the high bars, the things like that – so to see them set to such beautiful music in a setting so close was incredible. I loved it. I thought the second half seemed a little short, and when looking through the program today I see that there is normally a “Strong Man” act – and there wasn’t yesterday. Doesn’t matter – all the aerial acts made up for it for me. Afterwards we decided to go to Josephine’s in downtown – I knew there wouldn’t be a wait like there would be at restaurants close to home, and I love their food. It was a really nice dinner and a good way to cap off the day. Then Jason & I went up to my office so I could pick up a note I forgot on Friday and he could see the view of downtown from 34 floors up. He agreed with me – it is a great view.

Today we kick off Daylight Saving Time. I hate Daylight Saving. It messes with my sleep patterns (that is, when I can sleep) for days. Justs leave my days alone! Ugh. It’s icky outside, raining and gray. Jason is resting on the couch with his casts propped up on pillows, and I am editing photos. I haven’t added any new ones to Pixelog since Wednesday, thanks to the migraine and then not being home long enough to do it. There will be more there later today.

I have heard and seen some really crazy things on TV this weekend. Yesterday on CNN there was a blurb on the botton of the screen that read, “Iraqi government terrorist ties confirmed, America safer than at the start of the war.” It made me laugh. I feel like there is a large propoganda machine out there that is trying to shove information down my throat to force me to be pro-war. “Look! Look! We proved that they knew the terrorists! Now we are making you safe! Don’t you feel better?” No, I don’t. How did I turn in to such a skeptic? I laughed even harder when they were showing the weather forecast on the news last night – we are already having highs in the 80s, but there is going to be another “cold snap” where we have highs in the 60s for a day or two, then back up in the 70s. The weatherman said, “It’s almost autumn-like!” No! No! No, it’s called Spring! It’s almost spring-like, although those 80s are summer to parts of the nation! It was just a reminder that the days of 97 degree temperatures aren’t far off.

Every time I type “just” I end up typing “justs”. I’ve been doing that for days. I wonder why. But now I’m just rambling … like I said, I feel really out of it.

Dang it, I knew I forgot to write something on my engagement planner for this weekend … “Strong Man Gig, Houston, Wave to Christine.” See, there it is on the post-it note on my computer. Darn. Sorry about that. 😉

“America safer than at the start of the war.” Bwahahaha – is that on the national safety index? (How does one gauge the safeness of a nation?)

Yeah, daylight savings time fks w/ me too. It takes me a long time to get used to. Last night I stayed up late as I like to on weekends, after 3am, but of course, it was REALLY after 4am, so I have been so tired today. Who knows when I’ll get back to normal. 🙂
