I’m the Bug today. 7;16/14, I was awaken at four something with excruciating pain in my heel. I think it is Plantars Fasciitis. Dennis had it once and we are very familiar with the symptoms. Stretching can help. So I got up, stretched. Made my coffee, had some cereal. I usually watch music shows or videos early morning. I turned to CMT and “Dukes of Hazzard” are on. Are they serious? They took off my videos in the morning to air those re-runs? UGH!!!
I fed our dogs. My dog Pinky, stepped on my pinky and it really hurt, I thought it was bleeding, but it wasn’t. I came upstairs and got ready for my bike ride. My tire is a little low, but I am going anyway! I got to the end of the driveway and I was really cold. I’m not complaining. I enjoy it, but I’m wearing a tank top so I turned around and got a jacket out of my car…..and my sunglasses.
In Moreland, you can ride your bike early in the morning or go on a walk, and sometimes you will not see a soul! Not even meet a car in the road! I was so eager for social interaction I nodded an waved at a rolled up rug sitting on a rocker on someone’s porch! HA As I rode down Church street I saw an old truck turn on the road. I never go to the end of Church street because of the little dog that follows me. So as the truck was coming up on me. I signaled and got in the other lane to turn into the tennis courts and head home. As I was getting over the truck slowed and an old codger hung his head out the window. With his tobacco stains going from his mouth to his chin, he yells, “ HEY, ya supposed to stay over here, you drive that thang just like you was driving a car!” This burns me up, and I want to retaliate. But I say in a normal tone, “I know the freaking rules.” I turn and head back to the house and I’m fuming! Wishing now I had yelled that to him instead! I know I should not let this Goomer ruin my day. I am out to get a workout to start my day. It is a positive thing. I AM NOT going to let him spoil this!
So when I got back home. I took my phone out to check my distance. I could not go five miles like I had planned because my tire was getting very low. I had gone a little over 3 miles. But hey, I have a crack in my phone! How did that happen. I haven’t dropped it! Seriously! I paid $25. for tempered glass.. and It still cracked! I am careful with it. I do not know how that got there. But it will be $99,00 to send it through insurance and have it replaced. And when the new phone gets her I guess I’ll break down and get a Otterbox.
The rest of the day was not spectacular, but not horrendous. I guess I have had worse days. But it is always good to have a good old vent session. I love having this venue for that reason.
