Say, was that the great outdoors calling me?

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Since I slept pretty well, and woke up with less pain than typical, I dove right in after breakfast to do some chores: empty the dishwasher, load the same, clean the sink, dust the living room, fold the blanket throws, clean off the table, put up some spring decor, step outside, see the dead stuff in the garden, pick up the dead stuff and stuff it in the compost, gather fallen branches for the fire pit, rake a few leaves, bring out some garden decor, feel worn out.

40 minutes of light gardening activity. Go me! Hope I don't feel it too badly later. And it is only 11 a.m.

    Doesn't it feel great to be able to DO things? So glad you had a productive morning, and I hope your body is happy with the activity, not overwhelmed. You are getting so much stronger every day... I feel so privileged to be a witness to your determination and persistence!

    You sound just like me, and a few million other women - the instant we feel better, we tend to go all out, usually with non-fun things like housework.

    Glad you got out in the garden - that always makes me feel better. Spring might be here any minute!

    I was right about that. I was certain once you saw the bulbs peeking through and the yard needing some picking up it would lift your spirits for certain.

    It sounds like it has.
    Now just stay with those small step for a while and take it easy, no setbacks needed. HUGS Pat in Maine.

    I was right!

    Please just take it in your usual Easy steps and not to much heavy stuff. get help with that part for now.
    This is a really good start. Work and Yard work, what a good combination for you Deborah.

    Way to get up and at 'em!! What a great feeling that must be to get some reasonable sleep! Maybe some day I will get to feel what that is like.
    Hope you are not too sore too. But what a feeling to be able to move around like that!!
    Keep up the great work!!
