I've Been Down How Long?

It's amazing how out of shape you can get in a few short weeks. I went out today with mom - just out to lunch and a few turns around two grocery stores - and by the end my heart was all kerflubbity. Just from getting in and out of the car and walking around a little bit!

I'd get out walking more, but the sidewalks around here are a maze of ice rinks just waiting to send you to the orthopedist's. Forget it, I've got enough to worry about, thanks. But I definitely need to get going on the driving thing soon, or I won't be able to manage the thing at all... not because of the incisions, but because I won't be able to handle the aerobic exercise involved in going from peddle to peddle (and yes, I DO drive a manual transmission - don't you?)

I did, all the way up to this car. It was very odd driving an automatic at first.

Ach, you'll get back into shape toot de sweet.

Yay! You'll build up your stamina again slowly. After all, your body has been through a major operation.

Just saying hi. Glad you got out and about. Sounds like good exercise. :)
