How long?

So my latest fall was this past Monday, and the soreness that followed was to be expected.

I went to my flip fitness class last night and the soreness that wasn’t too bad, well, it seems as if it were awakened by the exercise. Not too much fun, especially when you are left to go scrounging for rubbing alcohol to try to take the ache out. I thought I was using my head and doing moderate versions of the exercises, but I guess I was wrong. I came in here today like a Walter Brennan** remember the Real McCoys?** stand in. I have to admit it is not a really attractive look. The fact that I have been trying to cook healthier for us and now that it is getting warmer,introducing more fruit, well, when you are aching, you really just don’t give a hoot.

I can only hope that the ache dissipates for the weekend and on the mend becomes a permanent state.

The arthritic generation

Ow.

It’s 2:15am and my shoulder is killing me. Not a fresh, just fell down
type of ache, but an ache of my age.The post 50 yank of a dog leash,
heavy handbag on shoulder,carrying 16 years of school books
shoulder, the Charles Atlas carrying the weight of the world on
me shoulders.

The orthopedic physician has diagnosed it as arthritis, and it’s
amazing to me what a weather front awakens in that ache. I remember as a
kid, watching the Beverly Hillbillies on television and seeing
Granny brew up some “rheumatism” medicine…lol…what I would
give for some now to take the ache away.

My father was a big advocate of rubbing alcohol on sore muscles
and joints. I have done that already.A couple aspirin? Also
done.

Sleep. don’t fail me now!
