Painfully tired

This post was transferred on January 3, 2010. It was originally posted on May 19, 2009.
I had volunteered to cover a graduation on Sunday because there were five in the area on the same day. I took Southeast Webster-Grand. It's close to home, although that didn't matter, as it happens, because I had to drive into Fort Dodge anyway. There was a fatal shooting early Sunday, and I found out about it around 11 a.m.

So, I called Barbara, and Jesse, and came in around 12:15 p.m. I went to cover the graduation, and also copy-edited and paginated (well, one page). I worked 10.25 hours Sunday.

I was in a lot of pain Monday but went to work anyway. Today I had an appointment to discuss a website I'm working on, did a little shopping for Mom, tried for 2 hours to get the website uploaded (finally successful) and went to a class reunion committee meeting. I was supposed to go to church, but Mom decided not to go, so I came home.

I'm supposed to be cooking supper now, but my knees hurt and I don't want to stand. My wrists hurt, and last night even my fingers hurt. Lower back, too. I should sleep, but I'll go cook and work on the website first. Oh, and watch House.
