H is FOR...
HEAT, and HUMIDITY
Here I am again, late as usual. And I'm going to blame the heat and humidity. I finally gave in and put the air conditioning on last night.
For almost two weeks now the weather man has been saying we were going to get rain and that the weather was cooling off. So I kept thinking, I can handle one more day, after all we lived for 40 years without air conditioning and we lived literally only five minutes away from here.
So what has changed? Well I am 40 years older and these periods of heat and humidity are actually longer than we have had in the past. So when it really became hard for me to think straight (yes, I was drinking plenty of water) and I needed to prepare for my Bible Study, I gave in and enjoyed the air conditioning.
When my sister came to stay at the beginning of August she talked me into doing a LITTLE walking every day. Since then I have continued to walk 10 to 15 minutes each evening. (I have fibromyalgia, neuropathy and vertigo so I have to increase length and time slowly). Some days I do more, yes even in the heat and humidity because it does cool down quite a bit in the evening. The consequences are -- I have lost four pounds and I am moving around much better -- and one day last week my vertigo (actually nystigma) just went away! Something clicked in my neck and it was gone!
,,,and I don't mean that in a flippant way. It means "praise the Lord" and that's what I mean...first of all for the improvement I've just written about, but also because...our HOUSE has been sold! We closed escrow last week after 12 weeks on the market. It is a HUGE relief especially for my HUSBAND who faithfully kept it looking good during that time and made HUNDREDS of decisions regarding the sale and its details.
Sorry no pictures this week and perhaps too much personal information but I HOPE to have everything back to normal next week .
