Had a lovely comment from MFScott after yesterday's entry...what a kind thing to say. Went to her page, but did not leave a message. That boat is a beauty...how do you spell envy??? I used to sail with my husband in another life long ago. Have had neither the health nor money to do so since the end of the marriage. Half the fun of it was seeing the wind in his face, the light in his eyes. I'd have to overcome that memory to sail in my own right, but I did love it. Had the ambition to sail solo when I was a girl, so it wasn't all his idea anyway. It was the same rush as taking a horse over hurdles...splitting the wind!
I am some better today, I think...must clean my apartment to be ready for a taco party I'm throwing Saturday...first time I've given a "party" in years. I finally decided that if I wait for the health and the "larger" home venue, I'll never have anyone over, so bite the bullet and do it. That decision was made before the respiratory infection reared its ugly head, but oh, well. Such is life. I will pace myself carefully for the next several days so that this does not wipe me out. That will mean more sleep hours and no cardio or strength training at all before Monday. Then, if all is well, I'll resume at a reduced level. We'll see how things go. CFIDS is all about accepting trade-offs in activity. Focus and priority identification are key. Speaking of which, I've put in enough time at the computer for now.
