Yesterday was rainy, cold and windy. Because it was Monday and all of our favorite indoor play areas were closed, Timmy and I huddled inside all day. He seemed content to play with his toys, ride his train and dance in the kitchen. After an exhilarating weekend, I was grateful for a quiet day at home.
Not only did I need the chance to unwind
emotionally, but I was happy for the chance to physically recover.
Saturday I spent hours on my feet, standing still in a large crowd. It
is far easier for me to walk and move than to just stand still. When I
am still, my leg settles into my socket and begins to ache. If I am
stagnant for too long, sores and blisters can develop.
because of the adrenaline I didn't realize that sores had developed on
my limb until I was home on Saturday night. I took off my liner to
discover that I had developed three dime sized blisters on my leg. The
blisters are healing, but right now walking is a tinge more painful. I'm
able to manage and get around, but I am reminded with each step that I
need to walk gingerly. I took the rainy day as an opportunity to rest
and work towards healing my leg.
Although he did well
yesterday, I know that Timmy is chomping at the bit for an activity.
After I teach Abby this morning we will head to the pool. I know that
the water will feel great on my aching body, and Timmy will love
splashing and playing. It is definitely a win-win activity, and the
perfect way to spend another rainy day.
