This has been a difficult health year for me. Normally, I don’t ever get sick, but this year, I had a serious round of flu and yesterday, I landed in the ER with a terrible bout of vertigo, something I’ve had before, though it’s been quite a while. This round was quite severe and not fun at all. I felt better today and by the end of the day, was feeling almost normal. I’m doing the Epley maneuver at night before I go to bed and I’m avoiding sleeping on the side that’s most problematic, which, let me tell you, is really hard. All signs point to this resolving itself soon.
I can almost see the light at the end of the school-year tunnel, though the tunnel still seems quite long. I’ve been thinking about this blog quite a lot. I have not found a good schedule for regular blogging yet. The morning isn’t quite enough time to write and often by the end of the day, I’m too tired to think. I supposed I could start a post in the evening and finish in the morning if need be. Some might say I should abandon the whole thing and shift my energy to Twitter or some other platform. But I like writing and reflecting, and I think it’s good practice. It makes me think through things more carefully rather than condensing everything down to 240 characters. A goal of mine next year is to fit blogging into my regular schedule again. I should have a more flexible schedule, which should make it possible to set aside 1/2 hour or so to write. We’ll see.
