Getting back on the horse

5:46 am This is the first morning in a while that I haven’t canceled my 6:30 pool time. I’m drinking my coffee and read my news and trying to come awake......In a little while I’ll go change into my swimsuit and put my easy stretchy pants over it and go to the pool to exercise. I haven’t been in about a week because of the bitter cold, going for the vaccine and yesterday my arm was sore but now I’m getting back to it. I’ve been eating more carbs lately because of the cold Weather I guess so I’m going to shift back to lower carbs. My gut feels better with fewer carbs. Or just not overly- processed junk carbs. 

I watched a bunch of the impeachment trial. Even at this point it’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that most of the Republicans will not vote to convict Trump of inciting the insurrection. It’s plain as day. What a gutless bunch of assholes. He is such a big boogieman that they’re afraid to cross him and his cult. Total horseshit. 

Mike is still sleeping. Bitzi is sleeping. Mike is getting his first Covid vaccine ( the Pfizer one) on Friday morning here at our main lodge in Sun City. The last two weeks they’ve been doing the 75+ people but now they’re scheduling others 55+ with underlying health issues. Mike has type 2 diabetes and asthma. They also already made his second vaccine appointment. The update on the availability of these to us came AFTER I already got the Moderna vaccine in Elgin through my old school district. I’m still waiting for the email link to schedule my second dose. The Pfizer vaccine has a 21-day wait. Moderna 28 days so I should get my second one around March 9 and they say about two weeks after that for the full immune effect.


8:04 I had a great refreshing workout in the pool! I feel good now. I hate dragging out of bed so early when it’s dark but I always feel better after I go. At the end of my workout I always stand in the middle of my lane, look up at the skylight and silently thank God for all my blessings. It rejuvenates me.

This morning Sun City has a free Valentine Goody drive-thru giveaway. Usually they have one once a month themed to different holidays. I tried to go to one last year but the line of cars was shockingly long so I didn’t do it. I’m going to try it this morning. I’m taking Bitzi with me so I can take her for a walk at the lodge afterward.
