This is what I've been waiting for. I can't believe how much better I feel. I actually am so tired that I've spent hours not sleeping but just laying still. Which is totally impossible for me most of the time.
So I have spent the day making soup, sleeping, resting, reading, and actually experiencing that my ankle hurts. I've been so busy that I've kind of avoided that. I mean it has hurt, but I'd forgotten the achiness because I'm constantly moving and therefore blame all pain on being active. Turns out, no, my ankle just hurts.
I've also eaten more golden peppadews than anyone should. I love regular ones (they're a South African pepper that is a combination of sweet and spicy) but I can't buy them because I inevitably eat too many and give myself heartburn. I found golden ones last night at the olive bar, tasted for free, and bought a few. since they are not spicy at all. They did not last, and since I've barely eaten anything not bland in months I'm considering it a breakthrough.
And that's my story for the day. I may do some sewing in bit, but that depends on whether my ankle decides to let me rest it on the floor without hurting worse. For now I'm not going far from the heat pack.
My poor cats have loved the day. They must have been feeling really neglected, as it wasn't until about 4 that I didn't have one or more in close contact with my body.
And tomorrow I still don't have to do anything!
