Last night his lordship, the prince regent and I all joined the new Planet Fitness gym that was opened about five miles from our house. Their hours are so great that I think even his lordship will be able to find time to get in there. I'm pretty excited even though I will likely only be using the treadmills and recumbent bike. But I have an appointment with their fitness coach on the 28th to talk over my back issues and see which pieces of equipment won't exacerbate the problem. Been waiting for this for a long time. I've missed our treadmill. Good thing is, it's only $10 and no contract.
On the down side, our friend Ralph's pathology report has come back. He does, indeed, have lung cancer that has spread all through his chest. They are not going to do treatment. He's 83. So they have given him two to six months. To have a brother-in-law and a close friend both going through lung cancer is very emotional, and the tears creep up on me at odd times during the day. Just keeping busy here.
Ralph's wife Donna's brother-in-law passed away last weekend. His memorial service is tomorrow and we told them we'd be there, even though we didn't know him.
Made a gallant effort to move my journaling into the 21st Century yesterday. For years and years I've used a spiral, top-bound notebook for journaling. I wondered what it would be like to do it on the computer. I really liked it. Until my wrists both started complaining last night. So it may not work. We'll see.
It's snowing here again today after a week of sunshine. I sure have noticed a difference in my spirits since Joanie cut my vitamin D in half. I desperately need spring to come.
