Amazingly, I feel better. I can walk...slowly, but i can walk. The pain is still hanging around, but it is manageable. Yes, I feel better. If you don't count this stupid sore throat and horrible cough that i suddenly was attacked with last evening...WTH?
I wanted to get on my bike all day yesterday....but I really thought that i would only be asking for trouble. So I didn't. But when I am feeling moderately well, I feel really guilty if I don't do something that is good for me at least once a day.
This week will be a four day week full of nothing but WORK. I have so much to accomplish before i can go on vacation. Early on Friday, H and I will be hitting the road. I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to only being on OUR schedule, and doing what ever the hell we feel like. I am still undecided about taking the bikes, like I said before, I guess I will leave that up to H.
I made a decent dinner yesterday, cleaned up the mess, and took a nap. I woke up late in the afternoon, and laid on the couch with H, and watched a movie. It was a perfect day and a perfect evening. The weather has finally changed to bearable, in fact, I have the windows open...it has literally been months since I was able to do that. For the first time ever in the summer, the utility bill hit more than $300. I really had expected it to, the ac unit droned on and on all the time, but I really thought that was a little excessive. One other time in the eleven years that we have lived in this house, the energy bill was that high, but it was during one of Iowa's brutal winters, and the price of natural gas was on a roll. I wonder how on earth really poor people manage to pay bills like that.....I don't like having to pay, but i am grateful that I can. There certainly have been times in my life when I worried how i was going to keep my kids warm....or cool....
I'm off to my Monday. I hope that yours is great, and mine, too! I have tons to do....ugh. Out.
