Sad Sale Day
I woke up around 6 with hammering going on in my ankle bone. I took some meds but it took a while for it to settle for me to go back to sleep. I then woke up around 11 with the same hammering. I went downstairs to use the bathroom and brush my teeth. I then heated up a burrito and made a cup of tea. I went up to my room and just read social media until I was out of tea. I wanted to read some more 1984 so went down stairs again to make another cup.
The game was just starting so I turned on the TV. Chris Sale was pitching. He faced his 3rd batter and then was hit by a line drive to the hip. I heard the hit and when they said Sale was down, I freaked out. I was on my phone when the pitch was made. I saw the replay after the play and ouch! He bruised his hip and came out of the game. There are 5 days before Opening Day and he is slated for the start. I don’t know if he will be well enough by then. Sucks because starting pitching is dwindling. I don’t know what happened to Pretty Ricky (Rick Porcello). One of their starting pitchers is going to spend the first 15 games suspended due to domestic violence he did last Oct or Nov. My poor Sox. Right now the Sox are up 3-0. I am now listening to the game as the appeal for watching was gone. I like to be resting my ankle anyway as it hurts so bad. Sitting would only aggravate it. I was happy to learn as soon as I turned on the TV that my favorite new catcher (sort of new) Christain Vasquez was signed an extension 3 year contract. Love him so much. He is like a young Molina (he did follow them before coming to the Sox). He throws out stealers of second base so quick. I loved him the first time I saw him in Spring training a few years ago.
I was late in taking my pain meds. I was supposed to take it around noon and just looked at the time. I am 2 and half hours late. I hate when I am late. I got so wrapped up in baseball. It was a good distraction for my pain. I am so glad it is back!
Windows finally realized I don’t have enough space on my hard drive so allowed me to use an external drive for some updates. I don’t know if it the updates that the stupid Win 10 assistant update thing is for. I think I might have to buy another 128GB thumb drive. I had transferred files from my 64 GB thumb so I could make a boot up thingy for my laptop because I thought I was going to get a new larger HD. I still need to call Dell to find out what are the components on my laptop as they do not match the manual. I really need to get my other laptop fixed. It might cost me $200 but I think it will be better than this piece of shit. I really should have spent the money fixing it rather than buying a new laptop. But live and learn, I guess. I will never get low memory again, either on RAM or HD.
Technology and I
I would like to think myself as tech savvy but my recent experience with Tumblr proved me wrong. Like Instagram, I cannot figure it out, but was able to get my blog linked to it. That is as far as I got. I followed a few people, mostly just two people that I know: Wil Wheaton and Taylor Swift. I think the third would be George Takei. He was in my feed as well. So three people out of a billion. I don’t have many friends that I know that use this app. I don’t even know how to post on it or communicate. I am failing miserably at technology. But I do know all things Twitter and Facebook, which is the main forms of communication these days. I just don’t get that many responses on Twitter like I do Facebook sometimes. And because my phone is getting ancient, I can’t download the latest Starbucks app. It keeps having download error while installing. I miss that app.
I wasn’t sure I was going to blog today because I have been feeling shitty all day. Ankle and bowels have been acting up. Well, the ankle is. My bowels are stagnant and they hurt. In other words, I am constipated to the high heavens. It is very uncomfortable. I have been drinking water to try and loosen things up but to no avail. I haven’t gone in three days. I went a little bit earlier today but I still am backed up. I can feel it. Wish technology can help me out but it can’t. I don’t think the senna is working like it used to. I even have been taking fiber pills to get things moving. No luck.
It sucks when you take so many meds that constipate you. It’s really hard to keep on top of. I used to have a good routine but when I stop having to take the senna because I have to go out, that is when the trouble starts. I get backed up for a day and then two, then three, and now I am sick and uncomfortable. Plus because my bowel doesn’t work the way it normally does, it makes it harder for shit to move down the shoot. Got to love having an impaired bowel on top of being constipated.
I haven’t been in a good mood today. I really just want to sleep. Sleep and never wake up. I had what can now be called my usual sleeping pattern of waking up in the wee hours of the morning and then going back to sleep around eight. I got up around noon because I was starving. I made a bacon and cheese sandwich. I usually enjoy these sandwiches but today I could hardly finish it. I had some ice cream afterwards because I wanted something sweet. It was all I ate before dinner. I didn’t even want to eat dinner tonight which was stir fry chicken and rice. I mostly just ate the rice. It was all that I could stomach. Then I came up to my room and I thought I was going to puke it all up. I know it’s because I am so backed up. I haven’t had a good movement in a week. It sucks. I wonder if my sleep is causing the constipation to be worse. I just need to be in a routine again. I might have to start taking magnesium supplements again. That helps me. It won’t hurt and might also help the leg pain I have been having. I just hate being so miserable all the time. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. I can never find a happy medium.
Today was a good day as far as the weather is concerned. It was really bright with sunshine and very warm. I think it hit 80 degrees today. It’s supposed to be warm all week. I guess pretty soon I will have to make room for my brother in law to put in the AC. I still need to vacuum my room a little bit. Been meaning to do so for a while but just am so lazy and unmotivated.
In Red Sox news, Hanley has just injured himself and left today’s game. There goes the season if he is placed on the DL. Not like the season is going good anyways, but to lose his power in the lineup, just sucks. I know it’s still early in the season and we are a long way off from October but the way things have been going, there is just no way I can see this team making it to the post season. It’s just going to be another horrible year. And my heart breaks. I know you can’t win every game, but a few in a row wouldn’t hurt!
