Rainy and cool

Got up at 4:45 this morning so I could start my run at 5:20 instead of 6. Better, but I don’t know if I can get up that early 3x a week. I like running when it’s just starting to get light, though, and most people aren’t out yet. First circuit went well, but second circuit, my knee hurt and I limped most of it.

But I’m at my desk, ready to write, a little after 6 AM instead of after 7. Let’s hope I make good use of it.

Because I was a waste of food all weekend. Saturday, I went to my friend’s place, did laundry, had lunch, hung out on the deck. And came home early because I couldn’t keep my eyes open.

Took a nap with the cats, got up, cooked and ate dinner. Zoned in front of the TV, but couldn’t tell you what was on. Went to bed early.

Up early Sunday for yoga, etc. Thought I’d get in a good writing day, but was incoherent on the page. Read a bit, but couldn’t settle on anything. I got out a few queries, but that was it.

Elsa is much better, but won’t sneeze. She’s ravenously hungry, though, eating about twice as much as usual. Since she lost a pound in a short period of time, I’m letting her eat as much as she wants. Iris — who’s on the verge of being overweight — is not amused that Elsa gets to eat so much and she doesn’t. I’m letting Violet eat more, too, since Violet is underweight. And Elsa’s lively and playful again, too, and getting into everything like a two year old. In other words, back to normal Elsa behaviour.

We’re done with the Baytril, thank goodness, because we both hate it. It bubbles when you give it to her, so it looks like she’s frothing at the mouth. Another week of Zenequin, and 3 more weeks of the steriod, unless the vet tells us something different tomorrow.

Have some ideas for some short stories. They’re in an interesting new direction for me, and very dark. Have to let them percolate for a bit. I might write one and switch it with something in progress for the deadline at the end of this week. We’ll see.

Back to the page.

  1. I think your zoning out this weekend was a defense mechanism. You were in emotional and mental overload.

    Praying this week is much better for you. (YES for Elsa)

  2. Sounds like good progress for Miss Elsa! Glad to hear it.

    Re: the knee – modify. The body’s sending you signals. Instead of running, walk one circuit to warm up. My body tells me I shouldn’t be kickboxing so much – hence the foot cast.

  3. I’m so glad to hear that Elsa is eating and is doing better. How do you make a cat sneeze? I hope she sneezes soon.

    Have a good day.

  4. You know what? That was your body’s way of telling you you’ve been through a lot, and you needed some serious rest. With all the stress of Elsa and other things, it’s a good thing to have a “Veggie Weekend.” Those are the best. Now you can attack your work with renewed energy.

    And 4:45? DAYUM, girl, you go!!!

  5. So glad to hear Elsa’s doing better.

    4:45 strikes me as a slightly ungodly time: I wouldn’t be keen to do that 3x a week either.

    Hope it’s a good week for you! Take it easy on the knee.

  6. I’m so glad to hear Elsa is improving! That is indeed good news. And here’s hoping you have a wonderful writing session today! 🙂

  7. Glad to hear that Elsa is playing and eating. It sounds as though you needed time to “charge your batteries” so to speak. I hope this week is much better for you all.
