I am here.
I made it into work on-time today, which is unusual. But I woke up this morning and once I dragged myself out of bed, it was so cold, I just didn't want to stay or move slowly. I quickly put on my black jeans and a fuzzy turtle-necked sweater, and off I went. So here I am, at work. Working. Yeah.

My stomach and I have been disagreeing recently. I'm not sure what it wants. Actually, my whole body and I have not really been seeing eye-to-eye. Sore, achy, head and neck hurting, other parts hurting, stomach annoyed. Cold. I keep feeling like I might be getting sick, but I haven't actually gotten sick. I suppose that's good, at least.

Last night I came home from skating practice and was way too wired to sleep. That's the problem with skating until midnight, I guess! I don't think I fell asleep until around 4am. I spent some time reading, some time messing around on the computer, and lots of time just laying in bed feeling my feet like blocks of ice attached at the ankle, wiggling and twisting my way further and further into and under my comforter, trying to warm up.

Generally I sleep in just a t-shirt or tank top. I don't like lots of clothing in bed: I get tangled up in it, it wrinkles, it makes me uncomfortable. At some point during the night though, I got up and put on socks, pants, a long-sleeved t-shirt, and a hooded sweatshirt. I wandered around downstairs for awhile, then went back to bed still wearing all the clothes. That helped some and I finally warmed up and relaxed enough to sleep -- although I don't think I wore the sweatshirt all night. I might have started peeling off layers at some point. The early-morning is a bit fuzzy in my head. Unlike the sweatshirt, which is made of a very thin material, so it wasn't as silly and stuffy as it sounds.

It seems ridiculous to consider turning on the heat; it's just the beginning of September! I think I was just chilled from skating, so it took a long time to warm up my core temperature. I need to start making myself tea or hot chocolate after I skate, like I used to. With alcohol. Maybe that will help....it usually does.

I am here.

And I am about to go home. What time zone are you in?

Eastern. It is now noon here, so I've actually been working for about 3 hours.

Cool, so you are five hours behind. I thought you were, perhaps one of the southern states...

If you look at a map of the US, at the top border near the middle-right, you'll see a blob shaped like a mitten, surrounded by lakes. That's where I live (Michigan).

In Michigan, I almost always had to turn the heat on after Labor Day - of course, the landlord had to supply it.
