Monday Moanin’

I woke up on Monday, all crippled up. I didn’t understand it until I went to get my morning meds. That’s when I realized I hadn’t taken my Sunday morning pills. Without my Celebrex, I am basically useless.

Dumb ass!

So, I sent a text to my boss, telling her I had to take the day off.

Sidebar: It was not the optimal day to take off. It was raining and cold. It sucked!

I took two Celebrex and went back to bed, after filling out the Blog post (forgive me, my  Goddess).

The sun came out mid-morning, so I went out back and picked up another garbage bag of trash. It might have been sunny, but it was not pleasant. It was definitely windy (30 mph sustained). I emptied almost a half inch of rain from the rain gauge.

Back inside, I made a cup of coffee to warm up. I finally got around to unpacking my new shirts and putting them in the washer.

I made another salad and ate that, along with a chicken pot pie, for dinner. I sat in the living room and read until I got sleepy. Then I went to bed.


  1. You are forgiven, but you gotta get your shit together Dad! :)

  2. I have a solution to all these little issues that keep popping up - a checklist! I know you love checklists already, so this shouldn't be too foreign. I'm picturing a Before I Go to Bed checklist. It would have things like (and I'm just spit balling here):

    1. Did I take my medicine?
    2. Am I bleeding or bruised anywhere? [I picture a little drawing of a person where you would circle the areas where you are, in fact, bleeding and bruised. Similar to renting a car.]
    3. Did I remove my glasses?
    3a. Did I put them in a place where I won't break them?
    3b. Did I put them in a place where I won't cut the crap out of myself?
    3c. Really?

  3. @ Carla: Thank you!

    @Jake: Not a bad idea!

  4. I’ve got a solution, too: Train with the best personal trainer at my gym, Ray. He’s your age, if not a bit older, but he doesn’t have any of the issues you do.

  5. @ Jyl: Unfortunately, the issues I have (artificial knee, fused spine and an inability to lift over 30 pounds) kind of rule out working out at a gym.

  6. Dad, don't worry about fixing anything. WE are apart of a prestigious group known as the CK. We don't need fixing because we are freaking awesome! Sorry to all who would like to join, this is an elite group and you wouldn't understand! #sorryboutit

  7. @ Carla: You got that right! WE ROCK!!! Hashbrown eat dirt!
