Tired… Day 1189 18FEB12
Joshua was up at the break of dawn this morning, the steroids turn him into an insomniac, another side effect we will not miss. Renee was also up early to go work an event at the ice forum. I got up a bit later and hopped into the kitchen to get Joshua's raging furnace fueled up. We started with cinnamon rolls and finished with a slab of bacon which seemed to do the trick.
Their was no skate on the schedule for tomorrow so we grabbed up our gear and headed up today at lunchtime to skate. We had a good skate but Joshua was tuckered out before the half way mark and after several extended breaks he decided to head off the ice and get out of his gear. He was beat in the car on the way home and didn't really get his energy back unit later in the evening. Considering all the things and chemicals his body has had to deal with this week none of us were surprised. He pushes himself hard and sometimes his batteries just aren't up to it.
After dinner we settled in to watch the Bolts take on the Capitols and were treated to not only a great game but a resounding victory by the Lightning. Joshua was thrilled along with all of us. The boys headed off to bed as soon as the game was over and they didn't take long to fall sound asleep. With luck enough of the steroids will have left Joshua's system for him to have a restful night.
