Baby It’s Cold Outside

Well, it's not quite that cold yet, but the nights are certainly getting chillier.

Well, it’s not quite that cold yet, but the nights are certainly getting chillier.

It’s definitely colder today. Yesterday my bedroom was a warm 70°. Right now, it’s only 63° in my bedroom.

Which is why I didn’t go to water aerobics this morning. Putting on a bathing suit in 46° weather just didn’t sound appealing. But with this change in the weather, I think finding an affordable indoor pool is necessary now.

I haven’t been sleeping well the last two days, for some reason. Last night, I woke up after only a few hours of sleep. And since it took awhile to get back to sleep, there was no way I was going to wake up at 7 a.m. on a Saturday.

However, my knee started feeling better yesterday. It was a huge shock to me, but this morning I walked downstairs with minimal use of my cane. This is the first time that I can remember in ages that I didn’t have to lean heavily on my cane.

My knee was taped the day before Thanksgiving, when I was in horrible shape. The tape lasted six days and it helped. I’ve been horribly inactive for weeks now.

Sure, it’s helping my knee, but I fear the rest of my muscles are atrophying. Haha. Not really funny.

Anyway, the knee is still swollen and I still need surgery, but to even briefly experience going downstairs without pain is a Godsend. I truly had forgotten what that felt like!

      I know what you mean! The pool is outside and it’s early in the morning. If the class was at noon, it’d be better. I will have to join the gym. The pool there is indoors. And it’s best for my knees too.
