The Good: I have my treadmill- yay! Used it two days in a row. I’m starting slow and walking one mile a day (about 20 minutes). Saturday I also did yardwork, which was probably a bit much since I had a charleyhorse in the wee hours this morning. I am doing my daily back stretches before getting on the treadmill- guess I need to give my hamstrings a little lovin’ too.
The Bad: Our elderly cat passed yesterday. He’d had a pretty bad day and we knew it was time. He rallied enough toward the end to eat a little and purr when we pet him. It was still heartbreaking though.
The Ugly: Hubby has had a nagging cough and a fever that spikes to 102. After fighting it for nearly a week I finally caught it. It’s really kind of amazing that I lasted this long. I am worried about the fever though- I can’t let it get that high (that’s an ER trip for sure). My natural body temp is pretty low (97.4) so 99 is a low-grade fever (which is where I am now). Crossing my fingers for luck. The is also the issue of us both being Very Sick at the same time. And did I mention that classes start tomorrow and it’s my second busiest week of the year at work? I suspect I’ll be skipping that tomorrow. Argh.
