Monday afternoon mania

By mania I refer to the fact that I spent this early afternoon lugging a garbage can to my backyard to pull weeds. In the grand scheme of things it would be a good idea, but I should be thankful that I didn't overheat and get fatigued. Aside from that I think I did a pretty decent job. Before this morning our yard looked haunted.

I know I don't have to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders, and I have to be safer than that but I was smart. I started the "yard mission" at 11:30am, it rained all morning so the yard was kind of cool up until the last 10 minutes. I really haven't done anything strenuous or that tasking (aside from lumbar punctures or playing rocket man inside of an MRI machine) in close to 18 months. I missed it. Beside the temperature getting higher I had to come in because pulling the weeds kept leaving divots in the yard and I was afraid of getting stuck.

  2. I can't believe I've lived with MS for so many years and didn't know about this entire MS community online!!

    I haven't looked at your whole blog~ You must be walking to get outside and weed! It's amazing how grateful we are for accomplishing what we used to take for granted!!

    Keep it up!
