On Tuesday, I was tired from my hard core Boxercise workout, and this morning have serious DOMS, so no exercise except walking. I was on my feet longer then I thought, for five straight hours as people wanting beverages (pop or water) was constant. I had to dip my hands into ice cubed water to fish them out, and then to wipe the water off each one. My hands actually feel great as this was one of the treatments they used to give me for my arthritis. Hated it at the time. But my feet are sure sore!! I am also have trouble with them and am trying every sort of cushioning and bandaging trying to figure out a way to ease the hot spots. Not easy to stuff them into shoes! So wish I could tolerate sandals, but I can't walk in them, need ankle support.
I discovered the last night shift has to do inventory and put everything back into the coolers, so extra time. The good news was I managed to catch a bus back in a timely fashion. Great as I loathed the thought of hanging around that bus mall. But fortunately, thanks to the festival there are a lot of people about so it should be safe. Although it was early at 10 pm. We will see how the 10:30 pm (or later depending how long it takes to clean up) goes. I did enjoy the lady I worked with, she was a hard worker and we worked well together. Our tent boss simply sat around and replenished the tanks with ice and drinks when it was running low. A male was given this job of course lol.
Busy today. This morning I have to go to my Dr.'s office for my injection and then to my physiotherapist (can't wait to find out what is wrong with my elbow and if they can do anything about it) then a session of bridge (had a horrible game with my mentor yesterday, almost dead last and she apologized for playing so poorly, but we will try again today) then I have to make a decision whether or not to go to the festival site early. A friend of mine, a bridge player, is performing at 4:30, right after bridge. If I go, it means waiting there for another three hours before my shift starts :( Boredom eating with all those good smells constantly bombarding me? Tired and sore feet from yesterday. Really torn about it. I hate to miss my friend. If I didn't have the foot issues, I would simply spend the time hitting the trails, as they run behind the festival site. But that would be way too much time on my feet without respite :( I don't have any effective pain medication to give me a boost at all. The weather has been gorgeous, just right, sunny and in the 70's. Hard choices :(
Do I cowboy (or girl) up? Tomorrow you will know. I won't be home in time to finish Sparking, so I will miss some points tracking my food, etc.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday all!
