It just doesn't feel right ...

I know ... You're thinking 1 of 2 things.

1 - Oh, no ... he's trying to train again and he's complaining about his fitness.

and / or

2 - He's going to complain about his knee and justifty his unusual level of laziness.

Wrong ...

Everything in general just doesn't feel right.  It doesn't feel like the holidays ... just as one point of stress seems to level out seven more pop up to take it's place ...  ... ...

Everything is just out of kilter.

I thought we (my wife and I) had reached a turning point.  We had literally saved out coins for years to afford a trip to Vegas with our son.  We survived the drive, got to the hotel room and the "We made it call" to Pam's mom started the stress ball rolling.

Vegas was pretty fun ... we ate some good food, saw a few sights and of course did some gambling.

Since we got back it's almost as if everything is going out of its was to generate more stress ... if not on me or Pam specifically then by creating stress on those around us.

I know everyone deals with stress ... and I haven't really given a lot of details ... but it is hauntingly reminiscent of some of the events from 2 or 3 years ago and I cannot relive that again ... and I can't watch Pam suffer through it again either.

By the way, my knee is doing pretty darn good.  I still have some discomfort going downhill, but I can do some pretty fast paced walking and even short bursts of low speed running without actual pain.  I guess that's the good news I have to cling to until this latest stress storm is over.
