Happy Friday Eve!
The first highlight of the day was that I finally went to the chiropractor. I could hardly walk this morning, so I pretty much had to if I wanted to get from points A to B. He was able to see me early, which meant a super early lunch break. Somehow, the day still went by fast.
The adjustment was painful, but he loosened up both my hip and my sore shoulder. It’ll take the inflammation a day or so to heal, but I’m already walking better. I did have a hard time getting up the stairs, but walking on flat ground is almost completely painless. I’m optimistic that things will improve over the next couple days.
This means a couple days of rest, which kind of drives me nuts. Luckily, I don’t have to be completely immobile. I can and should walk to make sure everything sets back correctly. I could probably do the gym too, since my regular machine is non-weight bearing, but it uses my arms. I feel my shoulder should get a rest too.
What I want to do is more zombie missions with the jogging, but I need to avoid that too, at least until I’m pain free, and then I’ll have to watch it to make sure that doesn’t jar everything out of whack again.
Just have to remember to take baby steps.
Second highlight was a night in with friends, delicious food, and wine. I forget how much I enjoy wine because I rarely have it.
Tonight’s treat was a cupcake moscato that I loved. I’m definitely a fan of the sweet wines, though I’m lacking in my wine knowledge. I tend to stumble upon good wines on accident. One of my goals before we move is to visit our local winery for some tastings.
Age and lack of practice have turned me into a lightweight when it comes to drinking. After two glasses, I was already tired. I wasn’t drunk or buzzed, but I could have taken a nap. While we drank, we talked about holiday parties and about having a good time, aka getting drunk and letting loose. In theory, it would be a blast. In reality, I doubt if I’m destined for anymore drunken nights.
That doesn’t mean there won’t be wine and dancing. There just won’t be any replays of some of my wilder college nights.
Tomorrow night is gaming, then Saturday is open for whatever strikes our fancy. We’ll probably go geocaching. I’d like to get some more fall pictures and possibly hit 200 before our St. Louis trip. It could definitely happen.
Onward to Friday, friends!
