Over the past two years I have become rather stuck in a rut due to the pandemic restrictions, foot surgeries, a seriously ill and then dying dog, and probably more reasons - but stuck I am.
I’m trying hard to stick my head up, my neck out and generally get unstuck! It’s taking many forms from long neglected chores to exercise to socializing to starting to dream of future adventures and lifestyle changes again.
Recently it took these forms.
We washed all the windows and screens at the back of the house. They get the dirtiest but two years of ignoring made them really dirty.
Very slowly increasing the amount I walk each week. I feel like the tortoise not the hare, but I’ll get there eventually and hopefully without hurting myself again.
Going mask less in some social situations like the outdoor (mostly) fundraiser we attended (but not in stores).
Noting future entertainment and arts opportunities nearby that may work for us. Just bookmarked a small symphony that has two local concerts this fall.
Setting myself goals for a few long neglected projects for the month.
Dreaming about traveling a bit. Seems like slow travel to scenic areas might work.
Thinking about getting a puppy and what timing would be good for that 🐶 but I think I am being deluded since it has been so long since we had a puppy!
