Wednesday, August 29, 2012 – 1 day before my 65th birthday

= 904 subscribers and 2213 visits
I will admit that I am not a morning person. I have about 4 alarms that go off at different times and intensities. They are meant to jolt me out of my stupor and make me jump out of bed like the people in the commercials. It doesn’t happen in my world.
Some days I wake up and it is as though someone has pulled a plug out of my body and drained all the energy while I slept. Haven’t been able to find out what causes it but it happens. Wednesday morning was a prime example. I phoned work and told them what was happening and said I was going to shower and see if I felt a little better but that I would be seriously late or not be in at all. I would let them know, after the shower.
I checked the stats quickly. I rubbed my eyes and looked again. Had our family really grown to nearly 1000 subscribers and over 2,000 visits overnight? I showered and decided to go to work and do what I can even though my energy was gone. 
It was a difficult day for me but I made it. Everyone knew that it was my birthday coming up and it is amazing how many people ask you how you feel about turning 65! I wonder what the right answer is? Parts of me were wanting to yell, “how the heck do you think I feel? Old!” but I know they are asking from a place of caring so I kept it simple. 
I wasn’t sure that I could do much on the channel today because of how I was feeling. I check it out, of course, it is part of my routine now. 912/2213 by the time I got home. Not much of a change but still amazing considering we are talking just a few days. I noticed that the comments were getting very scattered and tried to think of how I could make the “lessons learned” stand out a little. What if I did a synopsis on a PowerPoint? Like an overview? Hmmm… that might be helpful. I was energized again.
It didn’t take long to put it together and then I found out that you cannot upload a PPoint to YouTube. Rats. That voice in my head was busy muttering about the fact that some people would have checked that out first – she’s a real pain, as you know. Always stating the obvious. Then I thought that I probably wasn’t the first to hit the problem and therefore someone was bound to have the answer. Yup. Found a place where they convert the PPoint into a video. Undoubtedly, I will have to pay to use this service before too much longer – that’s the way of the internet – but it served it’s purpose.
I went to bed knowing I had answered a few more questions, learned something new, taken another risk and I checked the stats:
936 subscribers 2433 visits and tomorrow I will wake up a senior with a whole new life. I made it through the day and achieved a lot even without any energy.
