Big Day Out

Being cooped up in the house for four days has left me itching and raring to go. So early this morning, I declare myself well enough to go out and buy bikinis for Bali next week. Relatively early anyway.

By the time we get out of the house at 11 am, I've got a headache and my stomach feels really gross. By the time we walk into town from Tanglin Club, I'm ready to go home and crawl back into bed- totally exhausted.

I recall what YM once said about overestimating her recovery and wanting to venture out after surgery only to quickly ask to go home in a cab. Same thing, except mine wasn't so serious.

I'm home now, totally flat out. But we did manage to buy $30 bikinis, Hazelnut Kit Kats (which I can't eat till I stop coughing), Spearmint shampoo (for that tingly chewing gum sensation), Romaine lettuce ($1.59 for a bunch- very reasonable!) and cough mixture that is likely to make me sleepy, so I can't take it yet. Hack hack hack.

It's weird being so sedentary for the entire week. Because of the ankle and then this horrid flu bug, the most active thing I've done so far is carry the groceries from the car to the house. And I don't like it. It's like I have all this nervous energy inside me and no where to put it. From running 20km a week to 0 is too drastic for my body to handle and it's not liking it very much. So, I end up feeling like those white tigers in the zoo, pacing up and down the enclosure.

Will attempt to nap now. That's never successful, but perhaps, I could be rested enough to venture out again later.
