I was really tired and a bit sore from yesterday, but still sleep won't come to me, so I rested in bed until I couldn't stand it any longer and got out and Sparked for a while, and then had breakfast. It was strange not exercising first thing in the morning, but decided to rest as I was going to an advanced step class in the evening.
My partner and I had another decent game, which is looking good for our tournament time in Penticton. She is going to see if she can get two more practise games with me before then. It will mean her cancelling games with her other partners.
Very sad news is my regular bridge partner for Tuesdays is in very bad shape. The MRI found a growth on her back that has been causing all her horrible back and hip pain -they have sent her to the cancer center :(( This really came on so very fast. She had been complaining about the hip pain which they had diagnosed as bursitis, but no treatment worked for that. Then the back pain came on suddenly and really ramped up. I hope they can do something for her.
Another lady from the club is battling lung cancer -shocking as neither her or her husband smoke although I wouldn't know if perhaps they might have at one time.
I was battling the ferocious winds walking to and from the club and actually felt it pushing me while I was on my scooter to the fitness facility in the evening. I wore a toque and a hood to keep the grit out of my ears and face as much as possible. Of course, when I got home, my apartment was flooded with the forced in smoke from my neighbor's. I opened the door, and tried to air it out to no avail, wasn't able to get so much as a breeze through, guess the wind was in the wrong direction :( I had a nice supper, and then discovered to my horror, there was NO hot water!! So no shower and no being able to get my very smelly laundry done :(
Mom is going to her water class Saturday morning, so I decided to go to my Zumba and kickboxing ones. We were going to go to the Farmer's Market Saturday morning, but by the time I get back and shower, it will pretty much be over :(
Weather permitting, we plan to go to my sister's farm for Sunday. If it rains, the roads will be impassable.
Don't expect much luck sleeping tonight either, its been heck being so stuffed up all the time from both the dirt blowing around outside and the smoke in my apartment.
Oh well, look forward to a quick night over at Mom's -she actually saw a raccoon this morning in her yard!! We have NEVER seen one of those around here before!!
Have a Super Saturday all!
