Sylvia may have been partly right this morning. When she asked me how I slept last night I answered, “Not well.” As she moved across the room gathering her things to take to work, she told me that I did too much walking yesterday.
That 3-mile walk yesterday from the house, to the bus, to the doctor’s office, then back again, was made without my walking stick. And that was my mistake. I took the same walk last week and slept great the night after that, and felt fine the day after. But that earlier trip was made with the walking stick. And I think that made all the difference.
The decision not to take it yesterday was made because I was in a hurry to get to the first bus stop. I can walk faster without the stick, if I force myself. Using the stick I move at a more measured, even pace, and with better posture. Covering the same stretch of ground, I’ll feel so much better using the stick than not. Heck, 3-mile walks or even 5-mile walks or more will be no big deal as long as I have the good sense to use my stick.
Despite the fact that I was operating at a much lower power level today (damn it, I should have used the stick) I was able to handle all the necessary chores. Gotta feel good about that.
Hopefully tonight will be a better night, and bring plenty of restful sleep. And hopefully your night will be good, too. See you on Thursday. 🙂
Good grief, it’s almost 11:00! I’ve spent almost the entire morning working on a web development project and the time has totally gotten away from!
Anyway, since it still is morning, barely, let me wish you a good morning. And I do hope we, all of us, can make this a good day!
I’ll get back to you later. 🙂
This has been a pretty good Tuesday.
The bus and walking trip to the new eye doctor took me about 4 1/2 hours from the time I walked out my front door in the morning until I got back home in the early afternoon. Total walking distance was maybe 2 1/2 or 3 miles and time on the bus both ways was cool (thank Good for air conditioning!) and uneventful. It was a hot, humid day here in San Antonio, so it took me a little while to cool off after all that was over.
Chess work went well after I relaxed from the walk home. I managed to move in all my games, winning one by checkmate and resigning from another in which I had a powerful material DISadvantage and no reasonable chance to do anything worthwhile. All the other games are still too early to say how they’ll go, plenty of chess yet to play on those boards.
Listening to the Cubs / Cardinals radio play-by-play right now and determined to rest my eyes as soon as I step away from the computer, which I’ll be doing very soon.
Hope you all have a good night, folks. Hope I do, too. See you on Wednesday. 🙂
