Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Worn out

I am feeling just plain worn out. I have to force myself to just about anything. I think I read in the paper that this has been the hottest summer in recorded history. I don’t seem to do so well in the heat especially when the humidity is high as it so often has been. It affects my breathing which in turn affects my physical abilities. I seem to spend more and more time sitting huffing and puffing trying to catch my breath. Once I start huffing and puffing it does seem to take longer to recover or catch my breath. Throw that in with this constant head ache and it becomes really frustrating out right annoying. The severity of the headaches is much much better but still there. I have to keep reminding myself it is just a headache. I always have a desire each day, to get something done. Usually it is something small but it gives me a sense of satisfaction at night knowing I did something.

The past month has been quite eventful. Vi spent a couple of weeks in Victoria BC. Son Rob got married. congratulations to Reagan and Rob, may you have long wonderful lives together.

Prior to Vi leaving, she received a phone call from a friend (a friend since their pre-school years) Louise. As it worked out Louise was coming to Winnipeg from Thompson for knee replacement surgery. Louis has no family here in the city and was hoping for a place to stay for a few days after the surgery. A few days to rest, heal and try to ensure things were on track before flying back to Thompson. Unfortunatly Vi wouldn’t be here. Now Louise is a lady I had only met briefly in passing years ago so I really didn’t know her. Here though was a person in need so what the heck. We have plenty of room here and if she was comfortable with the idea she was welcome to come here and I would do my best to care for any needs she might have. She took me up on the offer, apparently everyone knows “Bill” is harmless. As it turned out her needs were none. Just a place to stay and her knee seems to be doing fine. I do think though that she was glad to see Vi back for the last 3 days of her visit. For or five days of my cooking, huh, I guess I don’t blame her.

I have more to say but am tired

    Awwww…… Mazel Tov to the son and new daughter-in-law!! What a glorious celebration. And how wonderful for the two of them.

    As for having to endure your cooking…..LOL…more power to the gal, she’s built of strong stuff, no doubt! 😉 I’m glad to hear she’s healing and got a bit of time with Vi (Welcome back, Vi!!)

    Here’s to some quiet, peace-filled, restful moments for the both of you. Sounds like they’re needed. I could use a bit of that myself.

    You hang in there, Bill.
    I know I’m one who repeats myself, but (yes…..here we go AGAIN!!) rest when weary, eh?

    *hugs to the both of you!*
    You’ve had full plates for some time now, that’s for certain!

    I hope you’ll see some cooler temperatures soon and be able to get some rest, Bill! We’ve just had a week of triple-digit heat here. Tomorrow it is supposed to “cool down” to the lower 90s. At this point I’ll take what I can get, but I can’t wait for autumn temps to finally arrive!
