It’s All a Matter of Perspective
Now the fact that I feel like I’ve been severely abused, out in the nearly NINETY degree heat, might appear to some that everything I’ve been doing has been a complete waste of time.
By now everyone should know that I don’t handle the heat well, and that I deal with pain issues (not to mention near constant fatigue)….however…I spent far more time than usual this afternoon in the uncomfortable heat, walking nearly a mile for the privilege. And there were a couple of good inclines coming and going. Throw in a hard, uncomfortable chair, and a rock band that could probably be heard three states away…and I think I’ve actually had a great day.
Sure my shins are cussing me out right now, and I really feel like I could use a nap (the fact that there’s no a/c in the bedroom will prevent me from following through on that though).
Even though I ache from my eye lashes to my toes, and even though I’m so tired I can hardly keep my focus on the monitor, things are getting better. Yes, I’m paying for it a little bit, but I lived a normal life this afternoon. It’s a nice feeling. (shut up, shins!)
Okay… I don’t care if my bedroom is hot. I need a nap. Just a short one…or a little longer than that. 🙂
***Just a quick update. Idid take a nap for a couple of hours and, while I’m still a little sore, I’ve pretty much recovered from my afternoon. Enough so that I did go to the fireworks, and then to the grocery store to stock up on radishes.
I can hardly wait until Monday, when the pool is open again. I know that’s a big part of the reason I bounced back so quickly today. By the time another event rolls around at the end of July, and the early September trip to the amusement park with my kids, I should be in pretty darned good shape…or at least much better shape for walking long distances over a period of several hours. 🙂
