Heat Wave and Hot Tub

Yesterday I started off with a lot of energy. I was also (if I may say so) really mentally sharp -- and as a result got a lot of tricky work done on my project. Days like that are gifts!

But around lunchtime, I started struggling with exhaustion. It took more and more effort to keep working, till by 2:00PM I knew I needed to quit for the day.

So I headed home, fell asleep, and woke up later feeling a lot better. I think I could have slept for hours longer, but Sam woke me up with a bunch of doggy growly noises. I swear she did it on purpose because it was 5:00PM, time for her dinner. My old puppy school instructor would be disappointed to hear that the first thing I did was get her dinner!

Last night, I had aching ribs and muscle spasms in my neck and back. I definitely remember that from last summer, so I am thinking it must be the Neulasta shot. Tonight, I plan to jump in the hot tub and relax those muscles.

Stinking Fish!

I caught a whiff of something bad yesterday morning outside my car, and I wondered maybe if I had driven over something gross. Nope, turns out that I forgot to bring my leftover salmon filet into the house on Saturday! It sat out in the hot car for days. Man, that is a bad stink. I left all the car windows rolled down last last, and I hope the car is aired out this morning.
