I think I have all my shopping done except for one gift card I want to buy. Now the job I dislike immensely is wrapping everything, and as soon as I got back from the store with wrapping paper & tags, I realized I need some tissue paper for a couple of small items. I guess I can pick that up anywhere, and may even have it in the back of a closet.
My walking regimen went well at the gym this morning and it seemed to go by more quickly. I was back at one of my old machines overlooking the punching bags, raquetball courts, etc., and walked 2-1/2 miles in about 43 minutes.
Jeannie's chiropractor invited me to be present while she went over the problems and treatment she will use. It is a little different than the one I go to, although their objectives and philosophy are very similar. One thing Jeannie's chiro does is have them rest in a darkened room after treatment. She told me I could rest there as well, but that is one thing that would drive me crazy. I nap once in a while when I'm really tired - on the couch or in my bed - but my internal dialog and energy are raging when I'm awake. Not that it always translates to action, such as housecleaning and such, but I have extreme nervous energy that seems to be mainly internalized. It may be the only thing that keeps me moving! We are going back this afternoon and I will pick her up from work at 1:30; I think today's appointment will be much shorter, and I hope I'm not driving in the dark coming home. I have done a pretty good job of just dealing with it though, which shows what mental attitude can sometimes accomplish.
I'm always complaining that I can't find crossword puzzle books that are difficult enough. I found some online that looked like what I wanted and they arrived yesterday. Dang, they are really hard and it's not going to be such a breeze working them, but it's what I need to keep my mental faculties humming along.
It's hard to believe that there are just 2 days before Christmas Eve. I wish everyone the best of the holiday season. I didn't think I would write the blog over the next few days, but it is therapeutic to me so I will decide when the time comes.
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
