This is about as hot as I like it - 83degrees! The next 3 days are going to be in the 90's but we'll be back in the 70's next after that. I hate hot weather!
I think I'm past needing prescription pain meds, but I did take an Alleve capsule last night before going to bed.
I had to deal with a load of laundry this morning. I worried about the weight of the laundry basket and wet clothes that I needed to carry across the street to hang them dry. I got out an old scale which I can't really rely on for accuracy, but weighed myself, and then again holding the laundry basket. Ten pounds for the basket. One doctor told me to only lift 8# and under for 6 weeks; written instructions for post op say 15#. So I went with the written advice. I think the load was lighter coming back with the dry folded clothes. Water is pretty heavy.
The storms are really scary and I hope everyone is staying safe. I don't have even a closet I could take shelter in, so I would probably just hide out in the bathroom, which has a small window over the tub. I don't think this area is ever under serious threat of tornados, and I'm sure not knowledgeable about what to do during an earthquake, So I don't worry about any of it.
I have to give credit to my feeling better to the coffee I have in the morning. I'm back to using half & half after a few weeks of coffee with 2% milk. The milk is ok in a pinch but the coffee just didn't taste all that great to me. Now it's a wonderful way to start the day. I love mornings, including the coffee and breakfast foods. I just wish eating dinner was as satisfying.
