I always forget how much I like them until I stumble across them again. Indigo Girls:
So I’d gotten to the point where I can do a half-hour on the exercise bike at the lowest setting. Today I decided to step up the incline, and I lasted all of five minutes. Now I’m moving into the hard part, but I really like it.
More importantly, I’m finally at the point where I can go down steps or spring out of my chair without holding onto anything, because my knees actually work now. It’s quite a thrill after three years of feeling ancient. I’m really liking this exercise stuff, and I never thought I would.
No headache today! Either the acupuncture helped (liver meridians), or my system’s finally getting used to the meds. Never so great a day as one where pain’s gone away.
For everyone who’s out hitting the yard sales today! Cheryl Wheeler:
