Uggg, gah, waaaah, blahhhh. Apparently that flu shot that I got yesterday is giving me the run around today, because I feel crappppy, people! (Not so crappy that I can't add unnecessary letters to all my words, though.)
I'm prolly going to pull through, but at around ten a.m. this morning I started feeling feverish and woozy. I ran some errands around town, including getting my niece Riley a birthday present:
Unfortunately, I started feeling woozy in Target, so I was unable to waste more money on makeup, pens, and new types of crackers, i.e. random things that I don't need but really really really want after seeing them at Target. Sigh. Sometimes when the cashier asks if I've found everything I was looking for I feel like smacking them in the face and screaming, "Yah, duh! This is Target, isn't it?!!" (Same applies to Whole Foods. Those f-ers know that you're leaving with a new Autumn-inspired tea that you don't need--am I right??)
I was scheduled to get a massage today, but because I wasn't feeling well I asked David to take the appointment so that I could come home and rest. David got me the massage as a gift, so it's especially crummy to miss it. Oh well. I did take Haruki on a nice short walk, and I also took a nap and leisurely read all the documents pertaining to the USADA investigation into doping in cycling. In case you hadn't heard, sh%& is about to hit the fan for Mr. Lance Armstrong. I doubt that any of you care about cycling as a sport, but my family and I have always been big fans so this is disappointing, though totally expected. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't cut it as a doping pro cyclist. Just getting my blood drawn and reinfused would make me feel like I need to take the day to rest rather than ride up the French freaking Alps.
Finally, I'm going to sign off now with the excuse that I'm feeling unwell. But I wanted to share the photos that I took this morning of the sunrise. I set my alarm for six a.m. because I really do enjoy being up early, and this was my reward:
*What are your sleeping/waking hours these days?
