I may have fudged on the "daily" part of this limerick, but the rest is a true story.

Woke up this morning to a migraine and my low back completely out. I'm very slow on everything today. The migraine isn't bad enough to keep me in bed, so I'm doing bite-sized chunks of housework, then I'm doing back stretches but I had to medicate before I could do anything except drink coffee.

I very much miss running. This power walking/speed walking thing is not nearly as much fun, but it's better than nothing. I'm going to walk (slowly) on the treadmill in small chunks today, too. I'm hoping my back is up for a lap (1/4 mile or 400m) at a time. As soon as I'm done with my entry today, I plan to give it a go.

Hubs has a seminar all day today. I'm guessing he'll be wiped out by the time he gets home, so we have a very low-key weekend in store.

Not everything is gloom & doom over here, however. 1) My eyes really do seem to have improved. They aren't perfect, but feeling better and lasting longer than they have in probably more than a year. 2) The poetry muses are waking up since I'm forcing myself to write poetry for the nail business. They aren't great poems, but I'm writing and that makes me very happy. 3) Mentally, I'm also feeling better than I have in a long while. It would appear my depression was directly related to my perceived self-worth, and now that I'm doing more worthwhile things, I feel more human and alive. Additionally, I thank all the powers that be every single day that hubs is doing as well as he is. It could have been so much worse. I have a LOT to be grateful for.

Happy Friday--be safe and have a fabulous weekend!! ♥
