Yesterday didn’t go as planned. I planned on climbing hard. I planned on going for a good, long walk with a climbing buddy of mine after climbing. I planned on having ice cream after that with said climbing buddy. Did any of that happen? No. The answer is no, none of that happened. None of that happened because I just wasn’t feeling well yesterday. I felt like I was coming down with a bug or something. I decided that sleep and hydration were the keys to not coming down with a full-blown sickness. I had sent one black V1 on the Prow Wall and didn’t feel well physically or mentally before, during, or after that. My nose was running, I had a fever for no good reason, I felt lethargic and fatigued, and I had already taken one nap yesterday before going climbing. My friend understood and recommended that I go sleep and take care of myself so that I didn’t get sicker. I was very sorry that I didn’t get to hang out with my buddy, but she understood and forgave me. She’s a nursing student. I went home and my husband took me to get something to eat for lunch before I slipped into my coma for the afternoon. I slept for several hours, watched a movie with my husband (our Tuesday night tradition), and then rolled over and slept the entire night until 0541 hrs this morning (unprecedented). I took my meds, drank a bottle of water, and had a little snack to go with my meds so that they sat a little better in my stomach. So far, I’m feeling okay this morning. So, no, things didn’t go as planned yesterday, but I may have avoided getting a full-blown viral or bacterial infection by sleeping and foregoing ice cream yesterday. Usually, if I’m able to sleep when I feel a bug coming on, my body is able to fight it off and I don’t get the full-blown version, or any version at all! I’m crossing my fingers, hoping that this one has been defended against successfully. I may still take it easy today and rest more than anything just to make sure. I want to be able to go climbing outdoors this weekend and I won’t be able to do that if I’m sick! So, when things don’t go as planned, NAP!!! 😴
Content Rating PG, for the most part
I try to keep the content of my posts in the PG range (meaning that maybe your 13-year-old should not read it... Just kidding!) - you know, something I could get away with tastefully in the town square without getting lynched, tarred-and-feathered, or hung (and something my mother would NOT wash my mouth out with soap for). As far as what age you have to be to understand some of the subtleties of my humor in writing and/or speaking, well... That may vary. A lot.
