This is hard.

Sunday, May 05, 2013

I thought it would be easier to take care of myself when I was home alone... but I am still struggling! Here it is, because it's kind of a big deal right now: my hubby is gone for the summer. (I try not to tell people, but none of you know where I live so you can't rob my house, I guess!) I can do my workouts and cook without having to factor in his schedule or tastes. In some ways, this has worked out really well. I have met up with friends for bike rides (road and off-road) both days this weekend, and I ate kale and quinoa last night.

It's kind of lonely, though. Not in a traditional sense, but more like I can't ask anyone for immediate help. For instance, what if I have several errands to run today? I can't split them up between two of us. And my time to speak to hubby is sooooo limited, I keep a phone by me all the time (yet still seem to miss his calls!).

My feet are bothering me again -- plantar fasciitis. I had new orthotics made last week, so hopefully they will arrive in the mail soon. I guess hubby won't care if I wear the brace to bed, either. I'm afraid an injury would derail me completely.

OK, projects to work on. My to-do list is longer than the summer, and I'm hoping to stay busy so I don't MUCH!
