Bugged!

Not the computer type, but some sort of old fashion virus that has laid PRH low...

After working a JV game some 60 mile north of here on Friday, I felt fine, and then I climbed out of the sack and worked a up tempo Junior High double header here in Celina on Saturday Morning.  Got home and my legs felt the 3 games worth of action in them.  After knocking off a couple of Guinness brews, I was not feeling any more "chipper", and hit the sack at 5:30 in the evening, where I stayed until 8am yesterday. 

I managed to help with some snow blowing, but really never felt up to par...watched some football, with little interest, and was back in the sack at 7:30 last night...up at 4:30, showered and some breakfast, and here I sit just before 6am.  The skies continued to snow and the winds continued to blow overnight, and despite not a large accumulation, probably 4 or 5 inches or so, the ice underneath and the blowing are causing havoc on the roadways.  School were already delayed last night, and it seems doubtful if they get opened today at all.

Meanwhile, I am scheduled to work a Girls game up north again, my last drive over 50 miles for the rest of basketball season...and that is probably up in the air as well...frankly, the way I'm feeling, I'm not going to complain if it is cancelled...the long drive in the Jeep is not something I am looking forward to, neither is the worked up sweat and return home.  Tomorrow, Patricia has to go to Lima for a procedure, and I'll be along, as she cannot drive home after the work at Lima Memorial...once home I am scheduled to officiate another double header at Celina.  I'm not sure my mind or body are ready for the next couple of days....time will tell.

back later>>>>>

Photos-Just before 5am this morning, the snow covered drive and the work to clear it lays ahead, and the backyard in the early morning darkness....

It's hard to tell someone to pace themselves,if they are under the weather. I find myself going to work, playing music, shopping, cooking and whatever, when I am sick, because I hate to admit that my body is telling me it's getting older. My mind tells me different things than my body does. Get feeling better. Drink a big shot of whiskey.
