I was able to relax yesterday, which was nice. The weather was sunny and got up into the 50's. Dh decided to get one last lawn mowing in for the year. Then he got the small lawn mower serviced and put away until next year. He ran out of steam to do the riding lawn mower, so he'll have to do it's annual maintenance another day.
I've apparently strained or really something in the back of my right calf. It's happened before. Our backyard lawn is super steep going down to the bottom level and I'm not sure if it's the walking down or back up, but seems to always pull that calf when I do. But, it usually is fine in a couple days. Well, a couple weeks ago when out looking for the cat who wouldn't come back and it was getting dark I went up and down twice that day. My calf hasn't stopped hurting (when I walk or try to stretch it) since. It doesn't hurt if I'm not using it. Google it and home remedy says to not use it and ice it every 2 hours, so I spent most of the day just trying not to use it as much as possible and will do the same today (along with ice every so often) and see if I can get this healed up. Or then I read use heat, so not sure which to use at this point. It's getting annoying. Dh took the cat upstairs to bed for me last night and this morning, instead of my usual make my coffee, go upstairs and blog etc for a bit, then go back downstairs to make dh's morning egg sandwich, I just made his sandwich while I was making my coffee, so one less use of the stairs.
Yesterday morning with watching mom on the camera was pretty funny. It's shower day/morning and after she came back up from breakfast she went and sat in her recliner and was dozing off when about half hour later K comes in and says "I'm here to get you in the shower". Mom says "wellll.....I'd rather just do it in the morning". K says "it is morning! and your daughter said we need to do it today (I told her to use me if she gets any pushback, as it might help) and then mom says "oh she did, did she? well ok then" and off they went to do the shower. LOL. Whatever works! I'm also thinking the new style of shower head on the hose was easier for K to help her with, as her shower went much quicker than the previous two.
Well, of to see how long I can plant my butt in the recliner and stay off my leg. Seems like I'm always having to get up for something.
