Today I am still extremely tired. It's frustrating for me. The weather is perfect, the kids are home from spring break but I don't have the energy to enjoy it. I feel like I need to sleep all day but I don't want to. I got out a little bit today. I drove Michael to the doctor and stopped at the meat market and Borders on the way home. I am ready for another nap. Another thing that makes it difficult is Zachary being only 7 it's hard for him to understand why his dad isn't able to ride bikes, take walks and play outside with him.

I took a break from writing this and drove Zachary to the park. It was nice. I sat on the bench. I enjoyed watching him having fun and playing but wish I was able to play with him like I use to.

Tonight's dinner was BLT sandwiches. Made with freshly baked bread, the finest bacon from my butcher (fried to just the right crispiness without being burnt), vine riped tomato( which were thinly sliced and sprinkled with fresh grounded sea salt), miracle whip (made by the fine people at Kraft), and crispy lettuce leafs. To accompany my delightful sandwich was a side of the creamiest macaroni salad made with the perfect blend of mayo, vinegar, and mustered with freshly chopped red peppers, onions and celery. Tonight beverage was a glass of fresh cow's milk pasteurized to perfection.


  1. Bill, listen to your body. If it's telling you to sleep, then sleep. That's when our bodies heal and repair themselves. So stop fighting it! You're a great dad, even if you can't play with them. You are always there for them, and they know it. That's the most important thing of all.

  2. bill, i think that the fact that you did drive michael today and zach proves that you are determined to get out and keep moving on! good for you as i cannot even BEGIN to imagine the exhaustion you must be experiencing but i believe that your spirit is stronger. a positive attitude and a strong spirit will guide you and lift you on days such as this. you surely have plenty of motivation around your home as you have a family that loves you and you them..God bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand! as for the rest of us...we'll just keep on praying for all of you! blessings always, deb:)

  3. Bill, BLT's sound great. Sounds like I you had a good dinner.
    Rest up tommorrow is going to be a great day!

  4. Bill,
    Just rest. You'll get your energy back soon. Spring hasn't even started yet. You'll have plenty of warm sunny days to spend outside with the kids.

    Did you hear that Jewel donated 10 cases of pop for your benefit!

    Would you believe that one of my friends from church (here in Joliet) graduated from Highland High School? He's going to come to your benefit and is inviting his friends from Highland.

    Go take a nap. Tomorrow will be another day.

    Warmest blessings to you little brother,
