Friday

I got tired at 7:30 p.m. last night.  I lay down and kind of drifted until 9:00 p.m.  I went to bed again a little after midnight, and woke at 7:00 a.m. for no apparent reason.

Mom and I went out and about in the morning.  We went to the library, and had the big shopping trip of the week to the grocery store.  We got a lot of heavy groceries.

I went to the exercise club after I dropped Mom and the groceries off.  My lower back was feeling bad.  Even though I'd worn my orthopedic shoes the last couple of days, I had sciatica running through that area.  I did the "NuStep," and reported to the nurse that the pain in my left knee was about a four when I did that.  My back wasn't bad on that.  Most of the other exercises on the machines didn't bother me.  E. had added some weight to the machines.  I could feel it in my shoulders, but that didn't cause pain to them.  When I did the treadmill, I had pretty bad pain in my hips, and pain in my knee.

I finished a book about hearing loss, and Mom got it out on her card.  I returned a book that another patron had put on hold.  L.B. and I studied some sign language in the library for a couple of hours.  I was just mentally exhausted for much of that time.  I don't know why.  I got a couple more books about hearing loss.
