I'm cold!II

I've been cold all day, and while the sun is finally shining it's too late for its rays to warm me or my house.  There's no doubt I could have warmed myself by getting busy and doing things around the house, but wrapping up in a fleecy throw, turning on the TV, and going to sleep seemed to have been a better option.

I've noticed for the past week that I'm increasingly suffering from carpal tunnel pain in my right hand - the hand that controls the cursor!  I am going to have to do something to reduce my computer usage or it's only going to get worse.

Every time I walk into the kitchen I see the elliptical sitting there, and I swear sometimes it winks at me.   I would be using it right now except I have my sandals on and not the proper shoes for it.  If you are wondering why I keep it in the kitchen, it's because I can set it close enough to grab on to something to break my fall if I should lose my balance - the fridge or the countertop is very good for this purpose.  So far I've been ok though and haven't lost my balance - just gotten incredibly tired knees and legs.

As much as I've been wanting a beer for the past few days, I haven't opened one yet.  I think maybe tonight's the night.


  1. You said "except I have my sandals on". Now, can't you think up a better excuse to not exercise? If you can't, I suppose I could send you some. . .

  2. I wish I could find a day to just cover up in my chair and take a nap. I have been so busy since last Sat.

    So you think the machine is winking at you ha hmm ... well you are going to leave next week so why ask for trouble by getting hurt that sounds better than the sandals excuse

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE your sandals excuse! that is a good one!!!!

  4. We are having such beautiful weather down here. But I still like curling up in the chair with two dogs to keep me really warm and just dozing. Wonderful way to spend a few hours.

  5. When I get cold I like doing the same thing. Crawling under a blanket in my big recliner & letting my mind take me off to la-la land. I sometimes get a soreness in the top of my right hand as well from the mouse.
