Oh, I don't know....

It's Friday morning. It has been a l-o-n-g week. I have been tired all week. The fall last Saturday really took a toll. Yesterday I ran three fast miles on the treadmill, and by yesterday afternoon I was limping. By this morning, when I got out of bed I could barely walk. I think the run yesterday was too much on my injured knees. Now my left leg hurts all the way from my heel to my hip. When I take a step, it feels like a jolt of electricity runs all the way from the floor to my pelvis.

I think I shall go to the pool this morning and swim a half a mile. That should loosen things up. Then another full day of work before I get two days off! But today I have a very easy schedule. A brief presentation at 9:00, then no meetings until 1:30 - then just that meeting and I am done for the week. I like to straighten my desk on Friday afternoons. Maybe look at the magazines I have gotten during the week.

Which reminds me... Imagine my surprise when I saw a familiar face (if you have read AA literature) on the cover of one of my magazines this week. Sister Ignacia has been deemed a "Hero of Healthcare" by Modern Healthcare Magazine. Back in the 1930s, she worked with Doctor Bob in Akron to get alcoholics the care they needed. She worked with alcoholics all of her life, overcoming the fact that she really feared alcoholism.

Okay. I gotta get going. Have a great Friday everyone.

I hope your day is better than anything you can imagine.
Maybe your injuries kneed a little more wrest.

Fear of alcoholism is a good thing!

Happy Friday!

Hi Dahlink. Have your leg checked out. You don't Kneed to add injury to insult.

MC, have a good weekend. Swimming would be good. I'm rowing this weekend. And then some rest for me too.

This is a good reminder that when I face my fears, I not only help myself, I make it possible for me to help others. Thanks, Sister Iggy.
