T-16: Limpy and Looking Back

My cake 10 years ago

Didn't get much sleep last night and, after a little bit of job hunting and email answering, it caught up with me and turned into a long nap.

Took it easy today, my ankle is still sore and stiff, which started somewhere between the showers and the pool at the Y last night. I've been doing a lot more walking, just running errands, than I used to do in the same amount of time. So it's not great that it's sore, but it is taking much more to make it hurt. I need to remember that's progress. I really miss how well my body worked before this injury, but I'm continually adjusting to varying iterations of this new normal. It certainly makes one appreciate their health and times when things are working better. I may never get back to where I was, but I'm trying hard to do what I can.

Birthday Week kit from 2001. The green and yellow pieces are envelopes for
different days, which were in a giant matchbook style package. Each
contained a small gift, like the fortune and shell pictured.
