Ran around for 10 days in Europe and then came back and ran and went to our tennis clinic last night, where I ran around some more.
I have also been doing some intense writing, which can be an energy drain too.
Today I have been dragging. As I sit here with my coat on, one shoe on and one shoe off, the dog is waiting patiently to go out. My plan is to walk her and then run the loop again.
This morning I made decaf by accident and then, thinking my fatigue was due to being caffeine-less, made real coffee. I miss Europe where you can go anywhere and get a cup of coffee made with fresh beans.
So...it's hard to just accept being tired and lie down with a book.
After almost four years, the question still haunts me: Do I have leukemia?
I know that I don't and that you can be tired for other reasons, but still, I wonder if that fear beneath the surface ever goes away.
Anyway, I'm writing this later. Since I went straight to the couch after walking Maddie, I figured that's where I was meant to be. While I was lying there, Katie gave me The Talk, saying basically that staying healthy does not mean exercising every day. I know, it's true: You have to listen to your body.
