Recovery, Day 1

I never thought I would get tired so quick. Ok, granted, I did go to bed late last night, and woke up a bit tired. And of course, did stuff the whole previous day.
Today was a laid back day. Went back to work, got re-assigned on a new project, fun nevertheless. I get to do front end design, which is what I love to do anyway. That, and WordPress sites, plugins and themes.
Came home for lunch. Played with Ethan and his newly acquired Mickey toy from Disneyland. Uploaded a bunch of photos on my Facebook page. It’s funny, since I started this blog, I find myself writing here more and more, and less on Facebook. I find that a good thing. Besides, Facebook has been slowing down dramatically in the last few weeks. I’m talking about their website.
Whenever I load it up on my browser (even chrome), it slows down like crazy to where even scrolling the screen up lags and hangs sometimes. Bad move Facebook. I know you’re trying to get more performance out of a website, but moving all your code to the client side is a bad idea in general. We’re talking about a web browser that has to interpret code, not run compiled code. Well, it does that as well on top of everything else. Maybe Facebook needs to just make a desktop app or something.
Anyway, enough talk about work. We were trying to watch Heroes tonight, and Ethan kept interrupting. Kids, right? So, I got upset and turned off the TV. Ethan immediately knew that something wasn’t right. He got quiet, played his flash games, and left me alone for a bit. Then, around 9, I realized I was exhausted.
Went to bed, slept 4 hours, woke up at 1, wrote this blog, and now I’m about to head back to bed for round 2. I found out that if you wake up in the middle of the night, it’s not a good idea to force yourself to want to sleep. You most likely will get tired if you do something. So, keep yourself busy. Better to do something for an hour and get tired than to try to force yourself to sleep for 2-3 hours.
And, I didn’t have any other pictures to share, except for our cat, Kitty. She’s there every morning when I wake up. She’s a very old cat. Almost 13 years.
Also, instead of the regular food truck at the apartment complex, they brought some caterers to serve up some pretty nice Mexican food. Burritos, tacos and my favorite, quesadilla. Then, we went on the balcony and enjoyed the weather, and the view of the mountains in the distance. I didn’t take a photo of that, but I will tomorrow and replace the featured image, or use it for the new post. We’ll see.
