Why do I take myself on a ride everyday? To sit somewhere else besides my recliner. Believe me, if I could do something else, I would! But driving is the only thing I can do that doesn’t exhaust me (until after a while,) and so I do it!
NOTE: I don’t feel sorry for myself but am just saying how it is.
I only have enough energy to do one thing every day, otherwise I sit in my recliner with my legs elevated (which helps me.) At some point mid or late morning I get dressed and go on a ride until I’m tired (usually 2-3 hours, yay!!) Then I come home, put my pajamas back on, and sit in my recliner for the rest of the day and evening, and then sleep there.
But…I don’t just sit there twiddling my thumbs when I’m home!!
- I write (I’ve written five books),
- I journal,
- I study various topics,
- I maintain my website,
- I blog,
- I pay our bills and manage our money,
- I go on the internet,
- I email,
- I play games on my iPad (sometimes!)
- I rest.
- (usually late afternoon or when Per travels) I watch YouTube videos, movies, or an app on ROKU like HULU or Discovery+.
There are things to do while sitting in my chair, nevertheless…yes, nevertheless. But I’m truly grateful for my daily rides that get me out of the house! Rides are a blessing in my life.
