I normally post in the evenings, but this morning I’m so anxious, I figured it was time to write earlier. It’s mid-September and after some lovely cool days, today the temperature and the dew point are both up, which means my pain is too.
Now, on a different day, this might not be so bad. It’s going to be hard for me to walk, so on a different day I would drive to work. I also have plans after work, and I’m stubborn and refuse to miss them, so I’d drive there too. Then afterwards, I would drive home. In between, I’d stay off my feet as much as possible. It wouldn’t be ideal, but I’d make it work. After all, this is why I bought a car.
Unfortunately, today is not a typical day. Thanks to city construction in my neighborhood, there are very few parking spaces for a whole lot of cars. That means that if I drive to work, I’ll lose my parking space (which is already several blocks away), and when I get home, I’ll have to park so far from home that I may not feel up to walking it.
There’s no good answer here, just uncertainty, frustration, and pain. Wish me luck.
