Third day in a row that I feel like shit. The heat is probably the culprit, even though I am inside in the A/C. I am nauseous and crabby and all I want to do is sleep.
I have been having nightmares the past few nights that wake me up all discombobulated, (I love that word). There have been a rash of burglaries in our neighborhood and I dream I hear people walking around our house downstairs. I try screaming to wake up Joe, and of course no sound comes out of my mouth. Another night I dreamt I had the bad guys laying on the living room floor with a gun aimed at their pointy little heads. Very uncharacteristic for me.
Joe is preparing for a two-week trip out west hiking and working. He will be doing some community service at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico at the end of September. He will be part of a crew working on the trails and doing general repairs and much-needed maintenance. After he is finished with that he will be traveling to the Grand Canyon to take part in a backpacking tour with the company he works for part-time. His dream is to retire from his “real” job and work full-time for REI. He teaches programs in their outdoor education programs as an instructor for backpacking, outdoor cooking, GPS navigation, compass orientation and hiking. He also works in the retail store helping customers with correct fitting of backpacks and how to correctly outfit yourself for different outdoor sports and activities. He loves it as he is quite an “outdoorsy” kind of guy. Completely opposite of me. Give me a bed an air conditioner and room service thank you very much.
