Lifeand a Marathon Weekend Read

As most of you will know I injured my knee a month ago and because I am stubborn I delayed going to the doctor until last week, thinking it would just get better by itself. Alas that did not happen and I am booked in to have and ultrasound next week to see what is actually wrong. The result of my stubbornness is having very painful knees that hardly bend and I am beginning to wonder if I have inadvertently done more damage.
So basically this has led to my days being filled with a very painful work experience, having to stand almost all day on sore knees and being too drained at night to do much more than sit in front of the TV barely able to stay awake. My weekends have been very similar to my evenings with the exception of being able to start and finish reading a recommendation from my boss, Shantaram by  Gregory David Roberts, which I read over a two day period, much to the awe of my 13 year old. This was a marathon for me at over 900 pages! Although I must confess while I enjoyed the first three quarters of the book I did skim read the last quarter as I found myself losing interest.
I can't see much of a change over the next two weeks, but hopefully the scan on my knee and the subsequent doctors visit will shed some light and relief onto my health and things will then begin to return to some sort of normality. I find the forced resting to be frustrating despite that when I am able to do whatever I like all I want to do is sit around and read and watch TV. The fact that I do not have the choice grates on my nerves.
