Actually, J found them. I probably spent close to an hour rooting through the garage with no luck. J went into the garage this evening and saw them after less than twenty seconds. I understand that a second pair of eyes can help, but yeesh – that was almost embarrassing. At least now I can finish putting the bike back together and go for a ride (if I can convince myself to do it).
I still feel like I’m running on empty. I did okay this morning for my Dr H appointment, which went quickly and well, but it wasn’t long after I got home that I couldn’t stop yawning and went to the couch to take a nap. J got home and we made supper and then I wandered back to the couch for another rest.
I don’t know why I’m so tired. Dr C suggested that I may just be catching up from the sleep that I missed out on over the last while, and I really hope that’s the case. Regardless of the cause, though, I’m getting a little annoyed at myself for not accomplishing much during the day. I have so much stuff I want to do!
Another thing I’m worried about is that FA is a ball of energy. I have enough trouble keeping up with her on my good days – Friday will probably be overwhelming for me and boring for her if I don’t perk up a bit.
My last ghost shrimp died today. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. The same two cleaner shrimp I’ve had all along are still happily cleaning algae off the plant but I just can’t seem to keep ghost shrimp alive. I’ve no idea why. Maybe I somehow got two bad batches of them. Maybe I just don’t know what I’m doing. Maybe that’s why they’re $1.49.
I had another good chat with my folks today. They might be coming into town soon, and if that’s the case, I think I’ll ask if my dad is interested in giving me a hand with my raised garden idea. I know it’s starting to get a little late for planting some things but I’m hoping that I’ll at least get some beans out of it this year.
