With the boys spending Tuesday night with their mother as usual, and Haley’s brother Matt being in town, the three of us decided to head out last night to catch a movie. Haley and I have been waaay behind on movies, and had been wanting to see the new Thor, so we went out for the seven o’clock show last night.
The movie was fantastic, but what was really surprising was how much going out to a movie took out of me. Halfway through I was ready to fall asleep, and by the time we got home I had no energy at all. I literally walked in the door, sat down on the couch, and fell asleep.
My energy levels have been real low in general lately, but this being the first time I’ve gone out to do anything recreational in a long time was a pretty good illustration of just how far my stamina has fallen: Going to an “activity” where I sit in a room for two hours is just about too much for me.
I know I promised more Daddy School videos, and I have a couple of ideas that are ready to go, but I’m holding off for two reasons:
First, I still have a big mark on the side of my face from last weekend, when my ottoman jumped up and punched me.
Second, for about a week now, part of my face has gone numb which has affected my speech. It’s a small patch of my face, on my right side, mostly affecting my lower lip on that side. It’s not an enormous deal, and it’s improving, but if I’m going to be filming videos for people to watch later, I may as well wait a couple more days so I don’t have an unexplained speech impediment.
Anyway, that’s all to explain that there will be more videos forthcoming once I no longer look and sound like a bruised neanderthal.
Lastly, schedule-wise I was dead on in my prediction from the other day. My treatment for today (Wednesday, 11/22) has been cancelled and rescheduled for Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.
I’ll be getting another Spinal Tap, and I’m getting pretty used to them now, so things should go pretty smoothly. I’ll likely bring my headphones and just try to pass out and listen to a podcast or something.
In the meantime, I hope everyone reading this has a wonderful Thanksgiving, and enjoys all the family and food they can. I love you all, and I’ll continue to post updates as often as I can.
