The air is cool and clear, the sun is shining… it’s a gorgeous day here in Boston. It’s a day to be outdoors!
So I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when my friend called me up and asked if we could switch our plans from being indoors this afternoon to taking a walk around a pond. It’s a great idea, actually. I bet it’ll be beautiful, and I’ll love watching her little girls run and play.
I give a lot of credit to my friend. She was very careful to make it clear that we could stay closer to home or do something else if I didn’t feel up to this. She’s really great that way. We’ve been friends a long time, and she “gets it.” The problem is, I want to do this. And I do feel up to it right now. I just don’t know how I’ll feel afterwards. I might be completely exhausted. And I have plans to celebrate a friend’s birthday tonight, something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. So if I walk around the pond, will I be too tired later for anything else? I won’t have much time to rest in between, unfortunately, because of how things time out.
I’ll just have to take a chance, and try to do both, and hope I don’t regret it later or tomorrow. I hope this works out! It would be so nice to be able to predict these things, but that’s just not possible.
