Thoughtful Thursday ~ 1/7/21

On this day one year ago, I began my walking regime in earnest. I had been back at the home office from my beloved Riverwalk since September-ish. Despite the home office rivalling the size of the Pentagon. I got surprisingly few steps. Parking garage to my cubicle and back. And while I sometimes took advantage of the flexible workspace, my step count never quite hit the mark.

New year, new start even though I’m not a believer of New Year’s resolutions. Instead I believe you turn that new leaf on any given day. And when you break, you start over. No time like the present or some such wisdom.

I also started showering at night again, just like a kid taking a bath before bed. That helped me sleep better too as bonus. I did this so I could leave for work at the crack of dawn to get there by 6 am and walk my full hour to get plugged in by 7 am. I did this five days a week until March 2020 when I went on Spring Break, never to return again. Well maybe not never but not yet.

In order to keep some semblance of normal, I continued walking around the property. I did pretty good too with hitting the golden ticket of 10K steps a day!! Lulu walked with me being banished to online learning in her final semester of college. We kept this routine until October-ish when the proverbial sH!t hit the fan. I have not written about the bad stuff yet mainly because we are still in the thick of it. Yeah buddy! Life keeps on giving.

And tomorrow I have my doctors appointment. I will follow her advice and I will take any damn test she wants me to take and I’ll try the meds too. God help me.

As always, more to come.

  1. I’m not sure if you’re as old as me, but I was gonna say, maybe at our age we shouldn’t worry about the long-term effects of getting a vaccine that we know nothing about and just take the damn thing… but then again, maybe not. Me? I don’t even take a flu shot anymore.

    1. I have taken the flu shot every year since 1988. B was working out of town and Pony & I were all alone. Pony was only 5 months old when I got the flu so bad I took him to mom’s to stay while I convalesced. I told myself never again so that next season I got the shot. In 32 years, I have had the flu only twice despite the shot but both times milder than 1988. I’m a firm believer. Or crazy. Haha. Maybe both.
