Today was an unusual day.
I did not feel great all day. I spent some time in the office. Very productive time, but felt as if I was under some kind of a cloud all the time. I was moving slow and my joints all hurt as I moved.
At 11am Rayann and I went and picked up food for the JAM Daycare celebration lunch. The staff has done a great job these past months and we recently moved to STAR 3 in the Keystone Stars program. It was fun to take time to celebrate all their hard work.
In the afternoon I went home to take a nap. Rayann and Nancy went off to the DMV so Rayann could take her drivers test.

I guess the small bump on my truck as she was practicing was worth her passing. 🙂
After my nap I enjoyed the FBC softball game. It was a great game. Our team was on it tonight and I had fun talking with those gathered to watch.
Following the game I thought I would take a quick trip to Lowes to pick up a few bags of topsoil and mulch for a small piece of our front yard. Nancy loves gardening and her flowers. Spending time in the garden is a kind of therapy for her and it helps relieve stress. We had great landscaping plans for our new home but we have put them on hold until I am feeling better. Finishing this small piece will give Nancy a place to plant some flowers and spend time in the garden when she needs a break from life. I managed to load the bags of soil and mulch onto a cart and wheel them to the front for checkout. As I made my way to the front of the store it was clear I did not have the strength I used to.
