Busy is better.

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Life isn't getting better yet but I'm feeling better. I had a great hike today at the Dunes. Evil Cherub had asked yesterday if I would like to go. Of course I said yes. I got to introduce someone new to one of my favorite places. We did trail 9 and I was VERY proud of myself.

She has been a Kung Fu student for years and she and her husband hike out west. but I guess the Dunes are my place. I actually had to help her a bit here and there. I felt great. So I guess I'm doing good on my actual fitness, doesn't matter what the scale says.

I'm also hoping to get out for a good walk tomorrow morning. We'll see what happens.

I'm just trying to keep busy until we get to talk to the surgeon on Monday. I feel better when I'm busy.

Warm Wags.

    Busy is better, it definitely keeps you occupied in a positive way rather than sitting around worrying. I hope all goes well at your hubby's appointment and that the surgeon is able to put your mind a little easier. Surgery is scary no matter what, but sharing your concerns with the surgeon should make you feel a little better because then you know that he/she knows about your hubby's past history.

You are still in my prayers.

    Sounds like a great day. I'm very happy for you. So much in life is out of our control so we have to keep at the the stuff that we do have control over, taking care of ourselves.

I hope you have a great walk tomorrow. DH and I are going for a bicycle ride tomorrow. I'll be thinkin of ya!
