One day last week, I walked over to the Japanese market and back and it was horrible. I had to stop and rest a couple of times each way and I felt like crap when I got home. Today I did about the same walk and it was much easier. I stopped once very briefly on the way home and got back here just fine and feeling good. I still hate the 20 minute walks but if they enable me to walk more and farther when I want to, I'll at least feel better about them.
I am beginning to wonder if I am becoming lactose intolerant. I had a giant glass of milk this morning (so big because I was finishing off the half gallon). About 3 hours later, after my walk, fortunately, I got hit by painful cramps and then a nice (not) bout of painful runs. I'm recovering now. I've had this happen every once in a while lately and I wonder. I drink milk only really once in a while. I think I'm going to lay off the milk for a while and see what happens. I'd miss milk but be grateful if giving it up fixes the issue.
My phone is all put back together and working. My new computer arrived and it's luscious.
And finally, today for the first time, at 2:30, Zoey has left my side an crawled into her bed. Whew. I love her but trying to type and read around her kitty butt is a problem. If I do get another cat it's going to be a transparent one.
