This is the second post of the day. I guess I have a lot to say today.
This past weekend, we went to the hubby's company picnic. We took John's truck. It's a big F-150 with big comfy leather seats. I keep my purse between my feet on the floor and I found I needed something from my purse. Without thinking, I bent down and picked up my purse. So what you say? Yeah, me too, until I realized that I did it effortlessly. I didn't have to unbuckle the seatbelt or maneuver the purse with my feet until I could raise it up so I could reach it. I just reached down and got it. Wow. That's a biggee for me. I was too big before to reach over my belly to get anything from the floor. Yay for that one.
The other thing I found out that same day: I was sitting in my folding chair, you know the kind: the canvas ones with the sling backs? I usually dread those chairs because I'm always afraid I'm going to break it when I sit in it because I'm so heavy. So there I was, sitting in that chair. I was reading a book and I crossed my legs. I don't mean crossed them at the ankles, I crossed them at the knee - one leg over the other. Holy shit, Batman! I was amazed! I was thrilled! I mentioned this to John and he did the nice husband supportive thing, but I don't know that he really understood how happy that made me. That is a biggee!
I really do need to blog these things because I will forget them later on. Baby steps, you know? Kind of like when you have kids and your kid does something really cute and you think you'll always remember that thing, but you don't. You have to write it down. In detail. I'm sure my details probably bore you sometimes (all the time?) but hey, this is my blog/journal. I'm just glad you're here reading and being there for me.
