Exhaustion Leads to... Being Tired! (profound, eh?)

Ugh... that's about all the energy I've got to say. These last couple of weeks have shown me that I'm not as young as I used to be and I have let the ol' body take a beating by putting in a ton of hours all over the place. I'm ready to collapse. To be truthful, I nearly did the other day. I got a few warning signs that I need to slow down. Of course in traditional Mik fashion... I ignored them. Too stubborn for my own good. Well, as I write this, it's on to the Loo... (that would be St. Louis) as the Cherokee have to go down and play the three time national defending champs... Oh well, c'est la vie... Found out that my best friend and his wife are expecting... very cool. Me, I'm trying to stay focused on what's right in this world. It's not easy, I can tell you this... Found some crap that was my old girlfriend's and that brought back some not-so-good memories of the past. Some anger and bitterness returned for awhile. Like about 8 days. I found myself getting mad at God for all the wrong (as usual) reasons. It wasn't His fault. I needed something to lash out and let it finally rest. Very odd, it came in the form of the 'Grumpy Old Men' movies. I watched those and for some very strange reason, I actually had a couple of tears in my eyes. I saw myself as the Walter Matthau charachter and I didn't like that one bit. I've done pretty good about not thinking about her and putting that worthless segment of my life behind me. I found a couple of things and it brought me back to another time in my life where all I did was practically kill myself trying to please her and take care of her needs at the complete expense of my own. I wasn't living my life at all. I was her servant. Nothing more... But after realizing what that mess was in my past with her, I was able to empty out the garbage and start over again. With much brighter horizons I might add. Today, I am drama queen free... halleluja!

Yeah, we should all listen to our bodies. My recent unmistakable clue was in finding myself flat out on the floor after passing out...that gave me the hint I needed to call my doctor pronto. I know. Sometimes I have to be slammed into recognizing clues. Also, keep the positive attitude, Mik. There's nothing like a clean garbage can!

Shall we try to meet up for coffee this time???

It would've been great Maggs. I had a nice time down in the Loo, this past weekend. I promise, next time I head down there, I'll look you and your hubby up and we'll grab a soda (I don't do coffee... diet coke with lime) :)
Riccie: I completely understand about being mule-headed and trying to ignore the signs. And my attitude is better than it has been in the last couple of weeks. Thank you amiga mia... you're the best!
