Lately, It's Been Like Walking Through Mud
Got that blech feeling, and it is my own fault. I have been sitting around again, eating too much (although I don't gain weight...but I digress) and waking early (I know, that can be a sign of depression). I seem to have lost my spunk.
Yesterday, I took my freshly patched skin on frame out on Lake Michigan. The tuilik kept me warm, but I felt like a slug in the boat. My sweep and angel rolls were okay, but nothing finishing forward worked. More over, I felt un-enthused. The only enjoyable thing seemed to be helping another paddler with his roll.
I just woke at 4:30 am and feel slept out. A boring morning looms ahead as I wait for movers. I will, however, have an afternoon photo shoot for a project I am donating to. Bottom line, I need to get moving.
As I've mentioned before, I have thoughts of camping, but I wonder if I can get myself up and going. Besides, the weather remains cold (relatively), and my schedule is peppered with obligations (most of which I am looking forward to). So, I indulge myself in some self pity. Enough.
I shall get the morning paper, brew some java and get the glutes in gear. Geez, I'm already talking like a party animal.
Paddle safe...

I thought you were supposed to pick up the slack left by Derrick's departure... Don't let the world down Dick. For example, we could take an exploratory trip down to Puerto Rico and check things out for the Ana gang. I'm sure they wouldn't mind paying for that valuable information... ;-)

I fully expect that a few thousand miles of cyper space will not keep Derrick fromhis daily rounds. Now, about that pre paid trip...

If Puerto Rico doesn't pan out, and you still feel like camping, there is always our back yard. Go far enough back and you would think you were in the forest. Bring your kayak and you can practice rolls in the swimming pool and when you are tired of that, there is always the wanes coating in the baby's room that needs to get done. :-)

Your mother and I have decide not to have children after all. We will settle for grand children :)

Ah yes, great children aren't they!

I was so looking forward to relaxing and chatting over coffee at noon. Then my cell phone rang, then over 9 hours later I finally left the office, making for a 13 hour work day--ugh!!!

Now I have Saturday paddle and Sunday travel to Madison with you to look forward to. We will have fun!!!

If you didn't keep breaking the ohone system you wouldn't have to work so many hours :)
