It's the Weekend!

I miss not missing weekends.

It was one of my favorite parts of living in the camper van.  The only reason I cared about the day of the week was that the state campgrounds fill up on the weekends, and I needed to check more carefully, to make sure there was space available where I wanted to stay.

I got to sleep in every morning.  I didn't have to set the alarm. 

Ah, the good 'ol days.

Back to reality, I am getting better.  I went out two nights in a row last week, and wasn't trashed by the end of the second evening.  It felt like a major accomplishment.  Of course, I was home by nine each night, but it's still a major improvement over where I was just a few weeks ago.

I'm feeling good this morning.  I got my pseudo-ladies pumped up again yesterday, which means I took a valium when I got home.  (It helps the muscles relax, so I don't end up with knots of pain.)  The drugs aren't picky about which muscles they help to relax - and I slept like a baby.  Straight through from 9:30 PM to just before 7 this morning.  I don't know if it's age or surgery, but I rarely sleep like that any more.  I woke up feeling MUCH better - energized and ready to face the day.  Given what I was able to do last week, the energy may even last for much of the day.  I can hope.

As a bonus, today is Saturday, and I have it planned as a play day.  It's spring and it's sunny and it's 70 and it's a great day to get out and enjoy the outdoors.  Heck, I'll go all out and bring my camera, and maybe even take a picture or two.

As energy returns, so returns the capacity to enjoy the beauty and the blessings surrounding me.  God Is.
