Autumn kayaking

Monday, October 05, 2015      11 comments

My brother, Jeremy, and I went kayaking on Lake Erie this evening. It was warm enough to forgo wetsuits, but cool enough to keep almost all the motorboats off the water. That is one of the things I like best about going kayaking off season. W... Read more

I need to pace myself

Sunday, October 04, 2015      11 comments

Still dealing with the gimpy ankle. It is bruised halfway up my shin, still purple and swollen, but I can walk on it. I guess it isn't myself I need to rein in, but Cooper. Yesterday he hardly walked at all due to the rain, but today was anot... Read more

Still gimpy

Saturday, October 03, 2015      15 comments

Sprains do take a long time to heal. I know this. But patience with limited mobility is not my strong suit. Sigh. Still swollen. Still dark purple. It occurs to me that the bruising is exacerbated by the fact I am on warfarin for a clottin... Read more

Retrieved my dog

Friday, October 02, 2015      14 comments

I was lonely last night without my dog, but my ankle was a little better this morning for the rest. I took advantage of being dogless this morning to run errands. Went to Hallmark, the discount store, the credit union, and returned my cans and... Read more

An actual rest day...

Thursday, October 01, 2015      16 comments

With a sprained ankle I am not out walking or running miles and miles. I think this is the first truly low activity rest day I have taken in months. I hate it! I want to be out in the cool Fall weather walking my dog. My niece walked him for... Read more

That effin' hurts!

I walk a lot, and overhear many snippets of conversation in passing. No context ever. But I have noticed that the F word gets used a lot in casual conversation. When did this come about? I thought swearing was cool for about 6 months as a so... Read more

Another rainy day...

But I would say it was not a lazy day. I had coffee with mom and dad, then came home and walked Cooper, followed by almost an hour on the bike while I reread a book. (I do that a lot. If it was good enough to finish reading the first time, I ... Read more

Lazy, rainy day

Monday, September 28, 2015      13 comments

It was overcast and drizzly most of the day. My various forays into the great outdoors with the dog were mostly short ones, as he despises rain. I did get on the bike for 90 minutes while I read though, so I was not a total slug. Tomorrow is ... Read more

Being thankful

Sunday, September 27, 2015      15 comments

Sometimes I need to just stop and remember all the things I have to be grateful for in my life. I have a tendency to let small frustrations escalate in my mind until they become overwhelming, making me forget all the wonderful things and people... Read more

Plans? Ha!

So, the nurse called and said she wouldn't make it today, but might tomorrow. I guess I changed my plans for no reason. Sigh. I did get the results of my last blood test, and I don't have to get more done for a month. Yay! I was getting... Read more

The visiting nurse called and said she would be here in the early afternoon on Saturday, so I made arrangements with mom to move our normal Saturday lunch to today. No problems. We had hamburgers (no buns), sautéed squazinni, sautéed mushroo... Read more

A little Dawn works wonders

Thursday, September 24, 2015      14 comments

So, I had the sleep study last night. The tech was hysterical, and had me laughing. He is a Puerto Rican ex-Marine, ex-police officer from NYC. Most of his jokes were rude and probably socially unacceptable, but I thought he was very funny. ... Read more

A waiting sort of day...

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      11 comments

My day is going along like usual, except for the eye I am keeping on the time. I have that sleep study tonight, and I have to drop the dog off with my parents beforehand. It just feels like I am spending this day just waiting for evening. I h... Read more

A different perspective may be the solution...

Tuesday, September 22, 2015      18 comments

So, most of you know I have been suffering with a constant headache, with intermittent migraines for about a year now. I have consulted with a neurologist, PT, massage therapist, and my GP. There is nothing structurally wrong with my brain, an... Read more

Easing up

Monday, September 21, 2015      15 comments

I have decided to ease back on the workouts, and take more regular recovery days. I am hoping this helps with the headache. But if not, maybe it will just help with my mood and attitude. I eat pretty clean and healthy, and it doesn't seem to ... Read more
