A Year of Living Positively-Day 276

I was really tired today. Surprisingly, I got little sleep even after a day of such hard exercise. I guess it was because I had to do some work on the computer after I got home that I felt a forced alertness late in the evening. In that state, I am often to tensed up to sleep right away. Then there were the usual disturbances. Besides being short of sleep, I was also physically fatigued from the climbing on Sunday. I took elevators rather than stairs as much as possible. My knees were sore and stiff and I really felt it taking steps up and down stairs. I was so tired that I came home immediately following my afternoon class.

When I got home, I turned the TV on to some innocuous sport programming, poured a glass of about an ounce and a half of whiskey with ice, and sat in front of the TV sipping the whiskey until I finally felt drowsy enough to have a nap. I am sure I slept about one-half an hour. I felt more energetic after the nap, but I did not do much for the rest of the day and I tried to get to sleep early.
Before bed, I just made a full dinner with cod and vegetables on rice. I only washed up some of the dishes, although I did wash some articles of clothing by hand before lying down. After a touch more whiskey, I was feeling drowsy enough to go to sleep shortly after ten, I think it was.

Somehow, I managed to meet some of the foreign women staff at lunchtime and handle a conversation, though I think I was a bit chatty, which is out of character. I excused myself to go spend some time back in my office before the next class. Somehow, I managed to check some homework, mark 40 quizzes, mark the grad students’ tests and presentations, and write out more lesson plans, despite my foggy and lethargic head.
