Active!

Wow. Each day when I think I couldn't get more exhausted, something new pops up and I keep right on going! It's been happening a lot lately. I run errands and do housework and generally move around quickly doing random tasks, going up and down the stairs 20 times and moving heavy stuff. Then I am so wiped out that I get a drink and go to sit down, and then something else happens and I need to keep moving. Sometimes it's a call from a friend to go do an activity, or like today the plumber calls and says he can finally come by to install something I'd asked for and then I have to move 15 or 20 big boxes out of the storage room so he can work. Or a I get a call that company will be coming so I have to move a bunch of furniture and get the guest room ready. Or I remember that I have some heavy stuff I have to bring in from the car. Just random life stuff that takes energy... energy I didn't have two months ago. There is no way I could have done all of this, especially day after day, before my feet got better. I know I am still quite out of shape because I decided the other day to start doing sit-ups again, and it was very hard for me to do ten! I used to easily do 50 each day just to keep the middle strong. I will work back up to that.

Anyway, I am really happy that I am able to work so well and get everything done I need to. Sometimes I am sore at the end of the day, as I am sure I will be tonight, but it is a *great* kind of sore with a feeling of accomplishment and strength that has been missing from my life over the past year. Life is good!

"There is no way I could have done all of this, especially day after day, before my feet got better."

And that's why "all of this" didn't show up for you to do until now. :) Funny how that works.

Isn't life great when you can go out and live it instead of watching it go by. I am happy for you.
