second wind

   so, it's like 11pm   i'm on my second wind    since startin the new job, i'm awake late at night   i'm accustomed to a 10pm bedtime   now i'm lucky if i'm there by midnight   not sure i like the change   will know in time if i can handle late   i was up late this morn because i couldn't sleep til 2am  ...nah, i like the early mornin hours  i'll figure a way of getting to sleep "early".......anyways, i went for a hike today checkin out our trail for this saturday   it was recommended by one of the group's hikers   it was short  maybe too short for saturday but it may have to do   i'll go back to the trail tomorrow looking for a loop that's near by   i didn't find it today   i haven't been hiking in 2months, so i didn't want to over do it   hopefully i'll get up early enough before it gets too hot    although it didn't seem to be that hot today, i still sweated up a storm  i've been doing that lots lately   i'm wondering if it's hot flashes again   not sure but ever since menopause and/or my meds, i sweat up a storm constantly, even during the winter in the heat indoors   my shirts are just soaked   i wear two shirts, one of those under armour sports shirts to absorb the sweat and keep me warm/cool   then on top of that a very thin t-shirt   both shirts were drenched in just an hour on the hike   came home and had to change before the baseball game tonite   then i just sweated some more   goodness you'd think i was doing a major workout all the time, like the jocks   i used to think it was because i walked 10miles a day in delivering mail   now it's just simply being in the heat, or not sometimes   it had cooled down at the ball park tonite, but i was still sweatin'   well i hope i'm sweatin all those toxins we get while living   hopefully it keeps me healthier in the long run......anywyas, so much for sweat!!!.......after the game i had to stop at Walmart   i found a couple items for the backpacking trip   but more importantly i checked out their bicycles   awesome prices!   for a hundred bucks i can get something decent for now to workout on   i can always trade up laterz if need be   found the perfect bike   well almost perfect that will give me the workout i need , or so it appears anyways    so the first extra hundred next month, i'm getting that bike for my conditioning program   all i've got on my brain is the Grand Canyon   school's startin soon and i'm not that excited about it as i am about the Grand Canyon   i think the Grand Canyon, and i think not only of the great adventure it will be, but about PHOTOS!!!   i'm sooo anxious to get back and take more photos there   i saw a couple of my old photos from 3yrs ago, but they've deteriorated on the web i have them on   plus then, i only had a film camera   now i have my digital which should enhance the photos, or so i'm thinking   i just LOVE the Grand Canyon anyways   can't wait to get back there.....
