Last night we finally got around to hanging decorations on our new Christmas tree which had been set up since Friday. The tree looks sharp for sure. We still have to get mom’s old tree set up in the great room which should complete the decorating for 2016.
Last night I had a miserable night of sleep. I fell asleep early, tired from whatever form of illness I am dealing with. I wound up waking up suddenly about 11pm having to take a leak. Afterward I was absolutely unable to fall back asleep, I rolled around for close to two hours before I said fck it and got out of bed. I plopped myself in front of the computer and fired up WoW. The last time I was playing WoW at 1:30 in the morning was probably close to a decade ago.
That time of night is actually prime playing time for a lot of WoW players, there were more people online than I am used to from my normal 8-10 gaming hours. Despite my eyes feeling like they were burning into my skull, I had some fun playing in the dead of night. I don’t think it is sort of habit I want to be forming if I wish to maintain my sanity but I’ll try to treat the side effects of the sleepless night with extra caffeine today.
I strained something in my right elbow yesterday at the gym doing rep 7 of a planned 8 rep set. There was a strong younger guy on the bench next to me so instead of stopping as soon as the pain hit I grimaced through rep 8 which was stupid, and surely put the icing on the cake. Doing any sort of pushing movement with the arm is not going to be a pleasant experience until it heals up.
