Knee pain

 All this sitting and laying around has caused knee pain. My right knee - that's my historically bad one - is swollen and achy. Also my back hurts. These are all clear indications that I am not moving enough. I need to move more. I need to get some exercise of some type in. So I walked the canal this morning. Mavy could not be convinced to walk out of the cul-de-sac, so I left him home and walked the canal. It was a bit uncomfortable. My knee was a little achy and feels swollen. My back was achy and uncomfortable. But I did it. I wasn't in any actual pain, just high levels of discomfort. So I did it. It felt good. I came home and folded the laundry from yesterday. On my feet. For an additional 41 minutes (I know this because I was listening to a podcast). It was incredibly uncomfortable. Still is even though I'm now sitting down and resting my legs. My legs have that heavy, kind of vibrating feeling that indicates I've used them too much. Bullsh*t. I call Bullsh*t. I lost a lot of weight just walking and if that's all I can do for the next 5 weeks, that's what I'm going to do. That means walking in the afternoon if I have to. In the heat. I'll survive. I can take water with me. It gives me an excuse to listen to my podcasts since I don't listen much during the summer. 

Okay, enough of that. Other than that, there is not much happening in my world. Things have been quiet, really, really quiet, since Chris left. He left on Wednesday morning and Hubby didn't even have a beer until last night. That was pretty good. 

Alright, I got nothing more. Just wanted to vent a little about the knee. I'm out.
