A Lazy Weekend Can Sometimes Suck…



…if you have osteoarthritis!!

Especially if you cannot go outside because it has been raining day and night this weekend.  Believe it or not, it has been raining cats and dogs out here for the last 3-4-5 days now. I cannot really remember how long because it now feels like forever.

I hate it like this because I often walk around the (our) house, from the back yard to the front, and back again and again, as long as my legs wouldn’t hurt yet. Sometimes in the morning or in the afternoon. I love stretching my legs sometimes, more on weekends because I really need a good break from online and computer stuff (that I do sitting down) and more so because I really need the exercise.

But if it is like this, I hate stepping out on the mud and the rain. I love taking a walk outside on weekends, even if I am talking to somebody on my cellphone.

These are stuff I can do without pressure on weekends. It is almost sacred, like my friend says. Particularly because I will not be able to stand not going outside, even if it is just to smell the flowers, so to speak!

Well, it is already Monday and looks like the rain has no plans of stopping. I cannot have it all, can I?

But is a decent, sunshine-y day to much to ask? The ever-gray skies and this non-stopping rain is make me sad and low.
