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.
