All my troubles seemed so far away .............
Today not so much.
Yesterday was like a normal day. I was so energized I almost forgot my problems. I was out of the house by 8 a.m. to get my snow tires put on.... (in a snow squall I might add) Then I headed off to THE toy store to buy a birthday present for the grandbaby who turns one this week .... and while I was there I bought all the other kids their Christmas presents. Then on to Chapters where I didn't find what I was looking for......but I did find a wonderful book I have been thinking of buying for the grandkids "The Christmas Elf" - I hope to start a new Christmas tradition in our family.
Then I hopped over to another mall and bought 2 more Christmas presents... some Christmas decorations... and vroom I was off again to yet another mall where I got some money.... bought a birthday card for the soon to be birthday boy, bought some other odds and ends... and headed off to a restaurant for lunch.
I had chicken - with no spices - on pita - with lettuce and a touch .. just a touch ... of mild garlic sauce. and home I came to enjoy my feast. It was the best meal I have had in almost a month. AND I didn't have any pain and just a couple of twinges. YAY!!
Then I had a rest - I was pooped. But the rest was only an hour.. and then I did two loads of laundry .. found the outside Christmas decorations and even got them up.
Now THAT is more like a normal day for me.
Today however........ not so good.
My legs feel like rubber - every small thing I have to do feels like a major chore. I am sitting here snuggled under my blanket - in my pjs - with one of the cats playing nurse maid beside me.
In less than two hours I have to washed and dressed and in a party mood cause today is the BIG first bithday birthday party........... and granny HAS to be there.
Thankfully Warren is coming to pick me up.. and hopefully I can just settle into a big comfy chair at daughter's house and smile and nod at all the festivities. Hell I can't even have "coffee and cake" - our usual menu for family birthdays!!
BUT this isn't a pity party or a negative posting... I am having really good days.. and am even thinking in terms of Christmas celebrations..... the good days make the bad days seem not so bad .......... and I know very soon (hopefully) life will return to normal !!
