ahhh, today might be the first day at my desk job that I won’t feel the steady ache of back pain. I could almost function, but not really function. I spent a lot of time alternating between my desk chair and laying on the floor. I was at the hospital on Sunday and I floated to the covid unit, but I didn’t have any covid patients, I was on the clean side. I had only 3 beds all day (total of 5 patients), but I still felt like I was running around and tired. I don’t mind floating, it’s nice to meet new people, but I really treasure having my regular coworkers.
We spent the first weekend home emptying Vince’s room and converting it into my office/quilt room (I haven’t touched a quilt piece since the beginning of the pandemic. I’m not sure when I’ll get back to it).
We moved Jeremy to the guest room for his office.
We moved my office out of our bedroom in order to take delivery for my new treadmill. We are turning my old office space into our home gym. I haven’t been running very well, but I’m hoping to get back into it soon. I need the treadmill because before times, I probably did about a quarter of my running on a treadmill (too hot, too cold, too rainy, too lazy (sometimes it’s easier to run on a treadmill because you don’t need to think about self-propelling, you just have to think, don’t press the damn stop button)) and without access to a treadmill, I couldn’t do those runs. Also, we have less childcare than before since Edda’s school is closed, so I needed a way to run while caring for Edda. So now I have this beautiful treadmill.
Emy was in town on Saturday, she was helping a friend move. We had dinner together. This might have been one of the few meals we’ve had on our back porch in the over decade we’ve lived here.
