Late but Motivated

I slept way later than I had intended.  Last night’s meeting lasted three hours so my brain was still thinking it was earlier than it was.  So I ended up going to bed a lot later than normal.  I’m surprised the kids let me sleep so late.  It was almost 9am when I rolled out of bed.  I’m feeling guilty because that means Chris isn’t getting his normal allotted time alone to sleep.  I hope he sleeps later since he was out the door by 1:30pm yesterday with all that he had to do before work.

I am on my second cup of coffee if that tells you anything.  The rain has finally stopped and the wind is down by maybe half but it is still blowing around.  And it is still very cloudy.  Yesterday it was announced that certain parts of the state would be opening this weekend with restrictions.  And guess where…. the upper part of the state since we are the least affected.  Problem is that means people from downstate are going to come up here.  And everyone is so stir crazy from being stuck at home that no one cares.  They will just pack up and go to get out of the house.  A lot of the communities up here are very anxious about this weekend.

I did do yoga after I posted yesterday.  It was a bit tricky because Moose was sure that I either needed help or that I need a coach.  He finally just sat down beside where I was doing my poses on the floor and watched.  Towards the end Stella drifted over to see if she could help.  I didn’t do the four times through the warm up.  I just did twice.  But I did do two times through the Sun Salute.  I did feel a lot better afterwards.  I didn’t think much of it then I noticed that I actually did feel noticeably not in pain.  I forgot how much I enjoyed yoga.

This weekend is supposed to be nice again.  Maybe I will try taking the motorcycle out.  If that is too much for my arm I may just take the bicycle down the road and back.  I should be doing that anyway.  I’m tempted to take a dog (then I could do three trips) but two things stop me.  One is that the last time I rode the bicycle I about died by the time I made my way back home (I stopped several times because my legs hurt and such… I think it is a mile or two….Ooof.  I just checked.  One way is 1.4 miles (2.25 km) so round trip was 2.8 miles (4.5 km) so that was a bit much for the first time on a bicycle since high school but I did it!).  The second thing stopping me is that none of the kids are particularly good on a leash if they seem something that interests them.  I can see me getting pulled to the ground with the bicycle and dragged.  So I need to pedal more and I need to walk the kids on a leash with some training.  Maybe go around the front yard to start with.  It will be something to do.

I am anxious about things opening back up.  There are too many idiots that are going to make things worse.  They balk at the least amount of restrictions and do everything they shouldn’t just to make a point.  Regardless of anyone getting hurt.  I guess we need to start somewhere.  Speaking of which I have made this an extra long post.  Sorry about that!   I will sign off and head to do my yoga.  Stay safe and thanks for reading!
