Today was an especially busy day. The kids and I went to church to volunteer for a bit. Then, we headed to the J. I have had a kink in my shoulder and a headache everyday this week. I’m not sure if it is a lack of sleep or water, stress, or something else. Today, I treated myself to a 15 minute chair massage. It felt great. I didn’t get a headache today, but I still have the kink. I also managed to do 15 minutes on the elliptical. We got to the J later than normal, so I didn’t have time for much more. On my way to the showers, I ran into friends. We chatted and showering didn’t happen while I was there. The Kid Kare was really busy and short handed. The kids still had a great time.
After lunch, I needed to go to the store. So, I decided to ride my bike. The store is only 2 miles away, but round trip, that’s 4 miles and 20 minutes of extra activity. The only problem is that my knee hurts again. I don’t think I twisted wrong or anything that I recall, but it’s been really sore all afternoon. I was planning to spin in the morning (1/2 class), but now I think I’ll be doing PT exercises instead. I don’t have time for too much more rehab. It’s summer time and there is too much to enjoy!
Right before dinner, the neighbors started getting a new lawn. Someone in the family has a landscaping business so I suppose that Sunday afternoon is one of the only “downtimes” for them.
Nick and Sally were glued to the window taking it all in. It was the best entertainment ever. A bob cat and a dump truck were both involved and we didn’t have to leave the house. We can’t wait to see them put the lawn in.
I spent the rest of the day cooking and cleaning. I’ve been trying quite a few new recipes out. I’ll be doing more recipe posts soon. I feel like we can eat yummy leftovers for the next few meals.
Next up: more knee rehab at the J.
