Weather: Looks a little more like summer than spring. Flooding of a week or two ago is slowly receding. Most of the roads have reopened.
Naps are dangerous: I have some joint pain from time to time from DJD (Degenerative Joint Disease). I had to stop taking anti-inflammatories last year because they were damaging my kidneys. I had very few problems when I was on them. Generally, it hasn’t been as bad as I had expected but some days are kind of rough. Wednesday my foot started bothering me and it seemed a little worse on Thursday morning. Mid-day on Thursday I started getting a migraine headache, which thankfully aren’t as bad as they used to be for me. So I decided to take a nap until at least the vision blind spots went away. I ended up napping for about an hour. When I got up I couldn’t straighten up. My back was killing me. I had done something to my back during my nap. I can sit or lie down fairly comfortably but standing and walking make me feel more like an older man than I probably am. Avoid naps!
The weekend: We’re going to a community concert my granddaughter is playing trumpet in on Saturday evening. Then on Sunday, we’re visiting family to celebrate Mother’s Day and May family birthdays.
Around the house: I got 3 tons of gravel delivered this week for landscaping in the back yard. We also picked up 170 bricks for the landscaping project. My back isn’t going to allow me to do much work on that which I guess is ok considering it’s Mother’s Day weekend. I hope to be able to ride my mower around to cut the grass at least.
