Day 22 of getting over 6000 steps.
Dd is still sick. She doesn't have a fever any more but she still has a sore throat and a bad gunky cough. I felt ill too. I stayed in bed all morning, mostly reading. I did get up at noon and showered and dressed. In the afternoon I decided to go to the Y and walk on the treadmill. The plan was to walk only as much as was comfortable. I actually went faster than I was expecting to go because the faster pace was the one that felt the most natural. Then later tonight I took Rocky for our usual evening constitutional.
I think I'm battling some depression. I just can't seem to write those Christmas cards. Saying, "Life is the same-old, same-old except that my dad died" doesn't seem all that festive, you know? I talked to my eldest sister for awhile. It's funny to me. I didn't really get to know her until I was in my twenties and she was in her thirties because of our age difference, boarding school and then her moving away to another continent when I was seven. But now we are best of friends.
