Monday again. Where do they come from and don't you all agree that they seem to come faster than they used to? My weekend was okay, it's kind of a blur right now, believe it or not, I just got out of bed.
My day yesterday didn't exactly turn out as planned. Mark and I had planned to go visit Bill, he's at his sister's house and I haven't seen him for more than a week. I am certain he knew we were going to visit, but after a few phone calls that went unanswered, I decided he wasn't up to having company. It's hard to know whether you are helping someone when they are ill and you go to see them or if you are actually being a pain in the butt....if I were in his shoes, visitors when I am sick is the latter. Generally, I want to be left alone. Bill however, is a bit of a social butterfly, calling him a butterfly makes me giggle, but you all know what I mean. I know his sister was going to be gone all day so I didn't call her, I assumed she didn't know his status. So, after we cleaned this whole place from top to bottom and I got all beautiful and ready to go, I hit the couch. And stayed there. It honestly was a pretty good day...if you count sleeping alot. I don't know why I am so tired recently, old age I presume.
I did ride my bike for a while in the morning, but that didn't turn out the way I had hoped. No matter how many miles I am able to walk, it seems that I cannot get my body used to riding my bike. From the moment I got on, the pain in my legs started and it was just no fun. I am frustrated, by now I should be able to do so much better than I am. I don't get the opportunity as often as I would like, the traffic and general hustle and bustle of shoppers, construction workers, gym members and employees of this whole little compound starts really early and doesn't quit until way after dark. So that generally leaves early early on Saturday or Sundays. Perhaps that is part of the problem but I am able to walk - and when I say walk, understand that I am not talking about strolling, I mean WALK fast-for as long as an hour these days. So, I have no idea. I am trying so hard to get my pre-surgery strength back, and I am getting there, other than on my bike. I have eight more pounds to go---and I will be back into my six's. That is part of my goal, too. I don't feel like I am fat, but I don't feel I look as good as I should. I don't know where the extra fat came from, I suppose sitting all the time when I couldn't walk. I have not changed my diet but the added activity has caused me to lose 16 pounds since I moved here. I am feeling much better about that.
Today, I have no idea at this juncture what I am doing. There is alot of needed cleaning to do at the ICS, but we still have to serve lunch to the local window factory on Thursday, it was part of the annual agreement. It is now closed, this has just not been a good year for that place, I suppose the economy along with some employee problems, had made it such a handful, and I am not unhappy that the year there is now over. I do need to find out my own status on the job situation. A couple of phone calls this morning should take care of that. I would really like to start working this next week, I hope the company has all of my required background checks finished. I also need to begin studying for my series 6 state test (mutual funds), and I can't say I am looking forward to that. Coloring my hair is also on my to-do for this day...you all know how much I love that job.
Whatever you all are doing today, make this Monday a good one. I will catch you all on the flip-flop. What the hell is a flip-flop anyway? :)
