I had 12 hours of sleep last night. I came home from work at about 6:30 and just hit my bed like a ton of bricks. I woke up at 6:30 this morning feeling like a new man. I guess all the everything in the past few months finally caught up to me. Now I’m ready to do it again!

In other news, I had long appointment with the arthroscopic knee surgeon a couple of days ago. He was very brisk, and sent me off on errands to get new x-rays done, and chastised me for not having disability insurance. Anyway, I’ll probably have the surgery in the winter. They’ll take two of my hamstring ligaments and use them to replace my torn anterior cruciate ligament by drilling, screwing, slicing, threading, and other uncomfortable verbs. I’ll be out of commission for about six weeks while I recover, and I’ll need a lot of physiotherapy. I’m starting to wonder if it’s all worth it. In the meantime, I’m to ride a bike 30 minutes per day to strengthen my hamstrings.
