It has been a lovely couple of days just doing ‘normal’ stuff around the house and getting back to some daily routines.
I’m back going to the gym and my muscles can feel it. Especially doing weights. I’m also trying to keep my steps or walking over 6,000 a day. My legs can feel that too. But it is necessary.
I’m also back to menu planning and cooking. The other day I did a lovely roast chicken and also a crock pot pulled pork. So leftovers are in the fridge ready to be used.
Thursday I went to Costco and spent a lot but much of it was bulk coffee( 2 2 1/2 lbs bags), toilet paper, paper towels, lots of non-food items.
My big splurge was buying the Dyson animal on sale. I had decided a while back that my old vacuum, a mighty mite, was going to need to be replaced, but what? This vacuum is handheld and cordless and hangs on the wall. That’s a big plus, as our closet is small enough and the vacuum sits on the floor. I’ve used it 3 times and love it. But since I bought it from Costco if in a few months I don’t love it, I will return it.
I’ve been reading a great deal which started down at the Kiwanis house. I’m loving the MCBeaton books and interestingly enough they are not cheap, even on Amazon. The two I found were from the clinics waiting rooms where there are some bookshelves of books for patients. I’ve taken a few and have a nice stack to return. Oh yeah, the Kiwanis house had multiple shelves of paperbacks and I found some good ones there too. I might stop in and bring some there too.
Next week is already filled with doctor appts. Tuesday, my daughter will take B down for his labs and clinic. Wednesday I see my doctor and I didn’t want to have to drive two days in a row.yAll in all, life feels like it’s almost back to ‘normal’:) Probably, that won’t be really true for a long time but at least it is better than B getting transfusions and platelets every few days.
