This is a post from yesterday (Tuesday) that didn’t get published since my computer is having issues.
I woke up this morning and was afraid to get up. It has been rainy and cold so my fibromyalgia and arthritis flair up when it is cold out. Usually I know if I’m going to have a bad day as soon as my feet hit the floor because it hurts when I walk. Yesterday my shoulders were hurting during the early part of the day when it was raining but the sun eventually came out and even thought it never really got nice out I did start to feel better. This morning I was feeling pretty good. I had to take Riley to a doctor appointment. Riley is 15 and growing a lot and it looks like he might have some Osgood-Schlatters. Kazoontite! I had never heard of that before so I had to look it up online. Turns out his dad had that too and so did his grandpa on that side of the family. I never had any growing pains…..I only had falling pains…..like when I wrecked my bike after jumping it over some crazy ramp I’d made. I was a dare-devil. I would get my bike going fast and then stand up on the banana seat and put one foot on the steering wheel to steer and put both my arms out straight. I wish I was still physically able to do stuff like that. Now I’m lucky to make it through a shopping strip without too much pain from the walking. The doctor wants me to try to forge through the pain though and get a little more active so I was going to go for a walk today. It also snowed today. It was a light snow but it is the 1st of MAY. I expect rain in the spring not snow. So after I got Riley to school I went to Value Village and walked around the store holding on to a cart. I mainly was looking for a nice bowl to use for Blue’s Water. I decided to get rid of the ugly thing that holds her two dishes. It’s kind of cream color and triangular to fit in a corner but there isn’t a corner it can go into. It always looks dirty and someone is always tripping over it, especially since it is light and moves when she’s eating. I have a little corner shelf by the kitchen door and I wanted to find a bowl that wouldn’t look bad in my kitchen that I could just sit on the bottom shelf for her water. I found something that will work…… and a few more things LOL
I actually bought a pair of shoes. I was so proud of myself because I have this issue with wearing shoes someone else has worn. I never go bowling because I can’t bring myself to put myself in those gross shoes. So when I go to a thrift store or garage sale I never even look at shoes………..or underwear *shivers*. Anyway, this morning I was wishing I had a pair of cute slip on shoes for summer that are black. I have my favorite pair that are a light brown but today I was wearing black and turquoise. I don’t have much money to spend so I can’t just go buy a pair. I just happened to be going past the shoes and saw this cute pair and they were my size. So I bought them. It does help that they look new – no dirty toe impressions. I’m going to scrub the inside and hopefully I’ll be able to actually put my feet in them. We shall see.
I also found a really cute skirt that I fell in love with. It has a lot of those permanent folds and it is a nice summer print in light colors. I got a cute tote bag with beading on the front. It looks like denim but it isn’t. It is beaded tapestry. I really like it. I found another cute purse that looks new. It has an old fashioned feel to it with a clasp at the top like a change purse but when you open it there is this white and brown lining with hearts. I love it.
I did a lot of walking around in that store and then went home to let Blue (my beagle) out for a while. I walked across the street to the park but I didn’t have much energy left so I had to drop the leash and let her go on her own. She listens really well so she wasn’t running wild. Whenever a car comes I call her to me and grab the leash and she sits until the car passes. I have never had such a well behaved dog before.
I started feeling really achy last night and ended up taking something and crashing early. This morning I am really sore and just want to stay in bed. I need to clean up some though so I’m going to try to do as much as I can. I might take a nap so I’m not too tired in the evening. I’m planning on trying a new recipe for Spaghetti pizza tonight.
