I took a day off. I didn’t write or post a blog. I cannot remember the last time I did that. I guess I blame the fact that I was feeling sorry for myself in that I was feeling as if I needed to take better care of myself. I felt as if my blood pressure was higher than normal so I decided to neither check and see what it was nor force myself to write and post.
I guess the reason was simple I was minding my own business and something just gobsmacked me. You have to love that word; it is so descriptive. Anyway, yes, gobsmacked. It happens every so often, so I just caved in and thought, okay, I am going to take a deep breath or two and let it go.
I feel better right now.
I had a busy day. Instead of using my Thursday for the usual cleaning, since we have been so good about maintaining, I decided to attack some of the things I haven’t done for a while. So I pulled out the heavy duty Swiffer duster and did the blinds in the living room, dining room, and several bedrooms upstairs. I also cleaned out the tracks of quite a few rooms for which we had cleaned the windows. There are actually only four windows we haven’t done and I looked at them and realized that they didn’t look any worse than any others but their tracks were bad. I cleaned their tracks instead.
It was cold this morning, but as usual, I started sweating almost immediately. This afternoon, MK and I went for a walk that was a little over a mile and it was somehow colder or I just didn’t dress appropriately. The sun is shining but it is clearly a fall day.
As I write this, my blood pressure feels better and I am working on avoiding any sort of gobsmacking situations.
