Some of the good stuff...

Yesterday, I only had to take the pain medication twice, and the second time was after I took Tyke for his third walk. I would say that is quite an improvement. Of course, I had a bit of a lazy day because it was a holiday and I did not feel compelled to do much, but still. I always do have some responsibilities being the only adult in a household with two animals who need to be fed and watered and paid attention to.
 
So I think my back is getting better and I am ever so grateful for that, because I do dislike taking those big and powerful tablets. Even though I take them with a glass of milk, they do have a tendency to upset my stomach for a bit, so the less I have to take them, the better. Of course, it is best if I have no pain at all so I do not stiffen up and make it worse. I do have to guard for that. I am not purposely going to withhold the pain medication from myself if I need it.
 
It was Ascension Day and, although a Christian holiday, still a day that most people had off. A lot of them will make a long weekend of it and take today off also. Luckily, the hairdresser had no such ideas, because that is where I will be going this afternoon to have my already short hair cut a bit shorter. Actually, it has grown out of shape and that is why I am going, not to have much of it cut off. I do need the outing and the pampering too. That is another reason to go there.
 
After taking inventory, it turns out that I have enough clothes for this summer and that I really do not have to buy anything new anymore. Slowly, over time, I have acquired the things that I need. It is, of course, a question if we are going to have much of a summer at all, because springtime is not very encouraging so far. I do have to say though, that I do not wish for hot weather because I can not stand that at all because of the humidity that is inherent to it. So, if it turns out to be a cool summer, I will not complain about it too much.
 
I have decided to start taking vitamin C tablets beside the multivitamin that I take every day. I want to take at least the recommended daily allowance and maybe more. That is something I want to think about. So far, I eat so little fruit that I think it is necessary, but it is possible that after my gastric band has been emptied some, I will be eating more of it. Of course, all the fruit I like is the expensive sort, except for juicy pears.
 
I have to think about going back to bed, although it is with some reluctance that I do. I am not quite looking forward to it yet. I think I need a glass of hot milk first.
