i'm just plain exhausted. somehow, the weekend trip to pittsburgh took a lot out of me. i shouldn't have had so many french fries (@ wendy's / @ kennywood / @ pnc park / and again @ wendy's)! i didn't have fries at kennywood's potato patch, but (according to friends) they don't live up to their reputation.
is it bad that riding roller coasters, eating, hanging out with friends and watching baseball tires me out so? granted, the 16 hours spent in the car (well, maybe it was 15 hours) was of no help.
and now i'm convinced i've got some sort of communicable eye disease. my left eye is bloodshot. i've had a cold all week and this morning i woke up with gunk all over both my eyes. my assumption was that the gunk was related to my cold, but now i'm fearing i'm close to death (i dreamed about being in the middle of some war like scenario the other night - a first for me). originally, i figured the bloodshot eye (which i think appeared saturday) was from the driving. i've been wearing a somewhat old pair of glasses and i think the eye strain at 2am on the pennsylvania turnpike was too much for me. but maybe i've done more than pull some sort of eye muscle?
i will explore this situation and i'm reasonably worried about my health. this is no time to shrug things off.
what am i talking about when i say "this is not time to..."? how ominous of me. i really meant nothing by that. there are no great orchestrated events going on in my life at the moment. except that i wish i could take a vacation in a giant air conditioned building. i've spent the past three weekends in the sun. it's time to take things indoors. or at least to switch my outdoor activities to nighttime ones that involve comfortable breezes.
