I wonder if I'll ever actually write another essay for my blog? The prospect seems dim at the moment. Even my reading has fallen off the map. I've only finished two books since the beginning of June, and none since the end of July. I can't seem to stay focused on the books I've been trying to read.
I went out last night for Happy Hour with friends from work. We had a really good time, although I drank too much. Have paid the price for it today, but expect to get a good night's sleep tonight. A bunch of people showed up, so it was a good time. My face hurt from laughing so much. I'm sure I made an idiot out of myself.
I slept funny last night or something, because my ear - and particularly my ear lobe - has been numb all day. I first noticed it in the shower this morning after I had been leaning kind of funny on my shoulder, so I'm not sure if it started at that point, or if I had actually done it during the night. In any case, I'm guessing it must be a nerve in my neck that is irritated or something. Either that, or a tumor is cutting off the blood supply to my ear. I did have a few moments of panic at the thought that I was having a stroke.
In-laws are coming over on Sunday for dinner, so we have been cleaning around the house today, which is even less fun with a hangover. I did nap for a while to the soft sounds of the Weather Channel reporting on Hurricane Irene. The Weather Channel is a great station for napping.
I think maybe I'm having a mid-life crisis.
