I Accomplished Nothing

Yesterday was a complete washout for me. I accomplished nothing. Not one thing. The most I did was take up space in the world and breathe up valuable oxygen that a gerbil probably deserved more than I did.

I had a bad night the night before, with a lot of back pain keeping me tossing and turning. Sometime not long after daylight I finally got out of bed and sat in my recliner and managed to get a couple of hours sleep. Then I woke up and talked to Terry for a little while, but I was still feeling worn out and hurting. After a while she told me I was falling asleep sitting at the table and sent me back to my recliner.

The evening before, our friend Jennifer Smith-Sommers had been telling us about some relaxation and meditation deep healing music she had been listening to on YouTube and I had asked her to send me a link. When I went back to my recliner I logged onto it with my phone, and before I knew it I was asleep again and woke a couple of hours later feeling more refreshed. The audio is about six hours long, and I will definitely be listening to it again. If you’re interested, here is the link.

While I was doing that, Miss Terry made a delicious chunk apple cake, and although I had no appetite at all, I knew by the time it cooled down it would make a delicious dessert after dinner.

I really needed to get some writing done but I just was not motivated. So instead I sat around being a wimp all day. The only excuse I have is that I am a guy. A woman could have a baby, lose a limb and bandage the stump by herself, then fight off a Sabertooth tiger and go on about her business and make dinner for the family without giving any of it a second thought. Guys get a headache or a tummy ache, and we want to be admitted to the intensive care unit at the local hospital.

Unlike me, some folks were accomplishing a lot in the last few days. Some were literally reaching for the stars. The other night when NASA launched a rocket carrying a crew headed to the International Space Station, we were able to step outside and get a couple of pictures even though it was cloudy and visibility wasn’t all that great. Trust me, there’s not a wimp aboard that spacecraft!

Thought For The Day – Whenever a bird craps on my car, I eat a plate of scrambled eggs on my front porch just to let them know what I am capable of.
