My hurting knee really slowed me down yesterday. I hobbled around the house all day while doing work. The knee is better but still tender today, so I am going to try and be wise by giving it another day of rest.
Last night I was getting frustrated with Hulu as it interrupted the show I was watching nearly every seven minutes with a minute of advertisements. My frustration level lowered when I realized that what they were really providing me with was one-minute intervals during which I could work on chores. So, while “watching tv” I also put away clean dishes, folded and put away my clean clothes, and identified cans of paint that will be taken to CHaRM on Thursday.
Since I have returned to being an early riser I intended to make it to Kroger at 6:00am this morning, but I didn’t sleep well at all last night so I am still tired and in bed at as I type this at 6:20am.
I may try to get out to a couple of stores today to pick up a few things to keep my overall home improvement momentum going. Or, since I may not be able to do manual labor for another day I may just drive down to Aldi, and stop at Kroger to fill the M6 with gas along the way.
Speaking of the M6, I received an email from the Mazda dealership from which I bought it telling me that if I sold it back to them by the end of the month they’d give me 120% of the Blue Book value. While that sounds like a wonderful opportunity I am just not in a position to pull that trigger currently since I will be putting a new windshield on it Friday and am contemplating taking my first real road trip since February to visit the Raleigh Royalty in Raleigh in a couple of weeks for Lisa’s 50th birthday.
I have discovered a new itchy spot on my right forearm. Given all of the “deep woods” yard work, hiking, and hashing I am doing this summer I think I am going to have a record number of poison ivy outbreaks. ☹️
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 195.4 pounds (+0.2 from last week’s weighing-in); Dangen! I’ll blame me knee, and the amount of food I shoved in my face recently.
Hope you all are remaining well.
