Today For Sure

My jaunt to the post office and grocery store took more out of me than I realized yesterday. I woke up to achiness near my tailbone, which I assumed would work itself out once I started moving around. It did not. It continues this morning, but I am determined not to let it get in my way. I am also determined to play with Lion on the new massage table. And do what with him? I have no idea. We have to figure out the height of it so I’m sure it will take some trial and error. It’s a good thing I have a willing guinea pig in Lion.

The last time I mowed the lawn, the lawn mower kept quitting on me. It was hot and dry. I assumed it was sucking in dirt and grass. It was having an allergy attack. Anyway, I was hot and tired at the time, so I just packed it away. I realized a few days later that I had COVID. In the meantime, we decided the lawn mower needed an oil change and a new air filter. I got a new mower blade too. The landlord has rocks bordering, well I don’t know what they border. It makes no sense why there’s a line of rocks near the sidewalk, but I inevitably hit them with the lawn mower. I haven’t looked at the blade, but it can’t possibly be in good shape. I would have fixed it yesterday if I’d had the energy. I pushed it off to today. Last night, I decided just to do the oil and air filter. Why mess with the blade when it’s supposed to be hot again today? By this morning, I’d decided to scrap the whole lawn mower idea so I’ll have energy for Lion later.

The only thing I’m thinking about doing, outside of the house, is making a bagel run. It’s been a long time since we’ve had bagels and I’d like to stock up the freezer again. Of course, this involves driving about a half hour away and that could potentially wipe me out again. It sounds really stupid to get so wiped out so long after “recovering”, but it’s not unheard of. I may just scrap that idea too. I’ll do the things that need to be done in the house, like maintaining the gardens and laundry, and save the outing for another day.
