Still feeling tired and achy

Well I finally made a doctor's appointment. In June I started feeling badly. I decided it was allergies because I have felt bad or gotten sick around June for the past 5 years or so. I took some Claritin D but it made me have nightmares and I was waking up 4-5 times a night. I stopped taking it and the dreams went away. I was still tired though and I would sleep 8-10 hrs each night but would not feel rested. I also started feeling achy in my bones and muscles. I thought it was because of increasing my running mileage but I am not sure. My Mother thinks that I am Iron Deficient and that is making me anemic.(sp?). I did have two ticks attached to me in May(I think). I will go to the doctor on Monday and get a full blood work up. Also be tested for Lyme's Disease and other tick borne diseases. Hopefully the problem is easily fixed.
Tomorrow morning we are trapping wood ducks at the Lane's site. Our total new ducks caught is up to 112 with the last catch of 34 at the North River site.
This weekend Jon and I are ripping up the carpet and making arrangements to have new carpet put down.
Gotta go..I am sleepy

More Wood Ducks!!!

Well today it was HOT again. Worked at the Futch site to get it ready to trap wood ducks. Also had to take up the site at Nicanor because they are going to make the pond bigger and deeper. My boss, his dad and myself sat at Godwin's site. We shot around 6:00pm and caught 10 wood ducks. One got loose from the net and swam away. But we still ended up banding 9 birds. YEA!!. Our total for the week is 26 new birds/4 recaptures. and grand new total is 26 birds. SMILE Since this is our first week. Tomorrow morning we are going to sit on the Lane's site again because they are really eatting lots of corn. I think because it is so dry, the ducks have to hang out in the rivers because the ponds/swamps have dried up.....and Lane's site is right on the river. Looks like we could get a little rain tonight. I sure hope so.

Work Work Work!!

I am on lunch at work and thought I would type my first post. Today I am working on rocket nets and plan on getting off early. I worked overtime yesterday baiting wood duck sites and getting sites set up again. Yesterday morning we caught 22 wood ducks at the Lane's site. 17 new birds and 5 recaptures. That was a great catch so I was really happy. Next shot is planned for Thursday evening at the Godwin's site. Hope to catch a bunch there also.
Well back to the nets.
