News, Games, and Knees

Happy Friday Readers!

I was up early this morning after a nice long night's sleep. I was hoping to turn on the news and find a peaceful resolution to a hostage situation that is going on not far from my home. A man has been holding his 16 month old cousin hostage as SWAT teams surround the apartment complex where he is. Everyone is holding their breath, praying that baby survives this ordeal. He says he's taking care of him, and he's been seen and heard. The family swears the man won't hurt the little guy. I hope they're right. It's been going on for three days now.

After news time was over, it was time for a little diversion. You know, games are good for keeping minds sharp. Of course, it's never a good idea to become consumed by them, but a game a day can do super things for your mental reflexes.

I made the mistake of doing some shopping yesterday. My knees are just horrid, but there was no one around to help bring the things in. I had soft drink boxes and cases of water. I'm still exhausted from it. I think that's why I slept so well last night. My body needed it, but my knees are just shot today. With their condition so bad anyway, it's not a good idea to really do this thing, but I was essentially without other options. You know how it is when you say, 'I think I'm gonna die now'? That's what it felt like when I finished yesterday. As it is, everything's scattered around the living room, where they are likely to stay for days.

Just typing this has made me tired again. Maybe I'll play another game.
