I didn't realize it was so long since my last entry.
Quick update on some happenings:
I've resumed going to the gym. I haven't done any of the
machines, but do get in the pool. The lap pool's heater is kaput,
so I've been submersing my body in ch-ch-chilly waters. The
benefits are dual. I get to cool my entire blood flow and that
helps the pulled muscles and such. I also have the pool to
myself, basically. Cuz no one other than a few hardy souls wants
to climb into cold water and swim around, spending time in there.
I usually stay in there for a 2 hour block. Then I visit the
hydrotherapy pool and allow the heat to work its wonders. They
did tell me to alternate hot and cold!
I'm teaching some folks some sign. We started with the food like
I stated previously. I'm throwing in other stuff as it comes
up. We've also been reviewing the alphabet. The girl wants
to invent her own signs, but if we don't use signs that others already
use, then they won't know what we are signing! So, we have to go
over that concept alot cuz she is young and doesn't quite grasp it.
My guy is here this weekend (hooray!!). He has been terribly busy
and I understand when he is tied up and bogged down (that sounds like a
mafia move) and can't make it here, but I am always glad to see him
when he does make it down. He is sleeping the good sleep (another
reference to the mob, gee, I didn't think I had it in me!) and getting
some quality rest. That's one of the things he seems to do here
that he doesn't get a chance to do at home. Cuz my place is
restful and peaceful and calm and soooooooooooothing.
Well, my shoulder is lots and lots better. Sometimes it tweaks
and I swear it flashes a pain so bright I gasp. But it is getting
tons better. I don't think I will do any chest presses, rowing,
lateral pull downs, etc. any time real soon, though.
Have a great weekend!
