More feet trouble, and a power outage

Monday, August 10, 2020

The day before yesterday I limped around the grocery store because both of my feet started hurting, and I still don't know why. My left ankle is still swollen and although I can walk on it some, I can't walk on it too long without it hurting. So that kind of exercise is out for a while, and I have to admit I'm not happy about this turn of events.

Yesterday I went on a road trip and I was going to sign in to SP before I went, but we had a power outage yesterday morning that lasted until just before I left. I don't use SP on my phone because it's too hard to read the website there, so I didn't log my food or anything yesterday. Other than that I really did have a good time. I picked up a wedding dress from a distant relative who wanted to give it away. It's pretty but too big for me, so if I wear it it will have to be modified quite a bit. The dress belonged to a cousin who passed away a few years ago, from a heart attack soon after gallbladder surgery. I got the dress from her mother, and I hadn't seen her since the funeral. She's aged so much in two years, but I think that's it unexpected under the circumstances. She lost her only daughter, who was in her early 40s, and they were very close. It was plain to see, the courage and the sorrow both. I wish we lived closer so I could spend more time with her and her husband, and the son my deceased cousin left behind.

Now I've got to make some new plans to keep getting stronger, since long walks won't work, for now. I plan to put the weights out today, and to try and find my yoga mat so I can do exercises on the floor. I know I can readjust, I just need to do it. I have a busy week coming up, though. My sister is going with me to the wedding venue, finally, so we can make plans after she sees it. I'm going on a road trip to finally meet my fiance's youngest daughter, and also her mother, his last wife. I'm nervous for several reasons, several good reasons, I might add, but I'm hoping hard that it will go well. There's some major unpleasantness between the ex wife and the step kids from the first marriage, and I'm already going to get tangled up in it because of the wedding. Having to talk about it immediately on meeting the ex is... Daunting. But it has to be done and I'm just hoping it will be ok.

I'm going to be here a little more sporadically this week than usual because of the thi have to do, but hopefully by the weekend that won't be true. I hope all my good fellow SPs continue all the hard work of being healthy!
