I have hit a level of mental and physical fatigue that leaves me in a sitting position the vast majority of the day at current. I’m too brain dead to respond to email (sorry those of you waiting for replies :s), I consider getting any writing/blogging done a gift, and part of me just wants to go back to bed for a few months.
Mind you, I’m in great spirits, and I do think I’m taking care of myself as best I can, considering the circumstances. For example, we bought a pedal exerciser so I can bike without leaving my chair. This is a massively appealing thing; I only have to turn myself out from under the desk with a book or my laptop, and Bob’s your uncle. It overheats quickly though, which helps me not get obsessive about going for a long time. I think I did about 50 minutes across the course of yesterday in 10-13 minute increments, which is pleasing. I’m really hoping that keeping at it will help me re-develop some endurance so I have the spoons to get out of my chair, so… we’ll see.
Also in the chair theme, I’ve a new office chair at work! I’d spotted one at a stationary shop that looked ideal, so we ordered it and I put it together this morning (I like assembling flat pack, hee hee). I don’t quite know how I feel about it yet, but it fits under my desk and doesn’t wobble like mad in spite of a mile of masking tape, so… it’s definitely an improvement on the previous one!
So yeah, things are quiet and still and mainly immobile, and I’m okay with that. It’s almost as if I’ve *gasp* figured out how to relax, sort of. I’d like to be able to add actually getting around to interacting with friends’ blogs atop that, so hopefully my brain will unfatigue enough soon so I can get back to that. That’s definitely my one specific complaint of the moment.
