As another hurricane stalls on the Eastern Seaboard after this beautiful Labor Day, we are staring at another sunny sky over us and feeling the slightest tinge of cooler breeze up here on the east-facing balcony. How’s your weather where you are? We have a southern balcony to retreat to when we need the sun to warm us, but not yet…
I’ve been using a walker-rollator for the last few years after a back operation that didn’t quite catch a dropped foot. My left foot often went numb and I didn’t have the balance I used to have; hence, the rollator. Recently though, I have become aware that I can even feel when my toenails need trimming. So I asked our doctor for referral to a physical therapist to get my balance back so maybe I can maybe go without the rollator.
After a couple of weeks of exercises, etc., therapist recommended that I get rid of all my Crocs because they were not supporting my feet properly. I have severely crossed toes so I was worried about finding a shoe that would not hurt. Found a sneaker by Apex that feels great and have ordered another pair. They have a very deep toe box and extra wide width, so look for them if you need similar space in a shoe. I found mine on ShoeBuy.com and they have free shipping. Do you have trouble finding a shoe that doesn’t hurt?
I procrastinate on physical therapy too. Twice a week, right? Well, give me Friday (last day to choose from) and I can’t go on adjoining days, so Thursday is out, and that leaves Wednesday for the next to the last day. Not Monday, not Tuesday; they are too early in the week!
Strange that our move from Maryland to Florida was not fraught with my procrastination. Perhaps it was because it was a partnership with Dear Husband. I didn’t want to let him down and I knew he couldn’t do it alone.
It took me 40 years of marriage before I started making our bed every day. We now have Sunday chores chiseled into my consciousness and I don’t put those items off. Having a schedule does help. But I have certain tasks and hobbies on my “to do” list that have been on there ever since we moved (in January of this year). I know it is something about that I can get away with the delay. The item is for me and for no one else, so it can be put off. What’s on your “to do” list that you are procrastinating on and putting off?
