Jump For Joy
I managed to not get one single thing done that I wanted to do today. I slept, and slept...and slept. I never get enough sleep and every once in a while it catches up with me. I slept all night and had a 4 1/2 hour nap today.
I had a dream while I was napping that I bought a mini trampoline. I have always wanted one and I decided to see how much the cost. Surprise, surprise...they are quite inexpensive. So I went off and bought one!
Years ago at a bear show I had a terrible fall down some stairs and landed knees first on an ornamental gravel sidewalk. I was wearing a short skirt at the time and so nothing cushioned my knee caps when they hit. They haven't been the same since.
So I am always looking for good, low impact ways to build up strength in them. It's sort of a catch 22. I am supposed to exercise to build up the strength but exercising makes them hurt if I over do it so they tell me to take it easy. I am always determined to find an answer when it comes to impossible situations.
R set it up for me and I discovered there really is joy in jumpin...and joggin and bouncin on it. I haven't had that much fun on a chilly afternoon in ages!
So tomorrow...or today...depending on how our schedule is, I am going to either go hiking if the weather is nice or stay in and do my chores if it's not. Either way today promises to be a good day! I hope you all have a good day too, and don't forget to jump for joy every chance you get! *Grins*
