Alive Again

I started coming out of my holiday slump this afternoon.  I actually bathed, did laundry, cleaned out the fridge, etc.  I didn’t get out of my nightgown though, just put on a clean one after my bath.  Tomorrow I’ll actually leave the house and run errands.  The weather is changeable right now, cold nights and warmer days but the sun is high and beautiful.

I’ve been doing a lot of studying on different aspects of my sewing hobby, mostly machine embroidery, but when I sewed all day last week I threw my spine out again and have been having muscle spasms and nerve pain down my right arm.  It will go away eventually and I’ll be able to do what I want again.  Thankfully my hubby will massage it and that helps immensely; also ice helps with the inflammation.  Old age sucks sometimes, but I’ll survive.  I finally got to the point where I’ve run out of appointments so my days are finally free.  I have multiple lists of things I want/need to do, so I’m sure to not be bored any time soon.

Our dog walker, John, has decided to come back to work recently (I think there’s something he wants to finance), so he and Ronnie walked all of our beasties tonight again.  The only one who doesn’t go is Dusty because he’s so tiny that it’s hard for him to keep up and since he has bad knees we end up carrying him most of the way anyway.  Ronnie’s been walking Maximus on the treadmill more lately since he’s been home for the holidays and his mom’s health issues and that has helped Max’s mood so much.  And when he walks with Ronnie and John through the subdivision he doesn’t pull so badly.  When you try to walk a dog that weighs 82 pounds and wants to go faster than you can walk it’s bad news, believe me!

Time to go check the laundry.  Peace out, America!
