After weeks and weeks of bullshit, I’m starting to feel like I’m almost to the surface and can grab a fresh breath of air. Not that I’m not still buried and need to dig myself out. Just…..fresh air will be nice.
The accident injuries have been slowly healing. Somehow, the stress and strain of packing, lifting, moving, boxing, moving, unpacking, repacking, moving, lifting, boxing has helped realign my body into understanding what my expectations are for it. While I will in no way take credit for the majority of what got done, considering Gabriel was, at times, the only one moving/lifting/reassembling furniture, I will say the effort I put in helped move things along much more quickly—I think…..I hope—than they would have done with him alone. And I was glad for the exercise. I know, it doesn’t seem like much of exercise, but when you’ve been as sedentary as I have been due to injury, anything that makes you use your muscles feels like work. And it feels gooooooood!!
So now that I have a little more time on my hands, and a lot more stuff in my house than necessary, it’s time to even out the two—slowly—until I find a balance of time, energy, fitness, finances and maybe some affection, too.
