Quiet Weekend

The weekend was spend just relaxing doing nothing, I spent time scheduling lunches and suppers with girl friends as the next two weeks are good weeks for me. I plan to drive my car and get out as much as I can.

I got a new trick for getting my butt out of the chair. I set the stove timer for one hour that way it forces me to get up and walk over to the kitchen and reset it for another hour. The living room is starting to look a little cleaner because I refuse to go back to the kitchen empty handed. When I sit back down, I exercise and stretch my lymphedema arm ... lets me feel like I’m getting something done around here.

Good trick! Helps get past the inertia that comes with the treatment.
