The illustrious Kim Prince thought it would be fun to give us an oddball phrase for this week. But I think I’m up for the challenge.
Last night I had dinner with Adam and he mentioned he had the day off and had some errands to run today so I offered to loan him my car. I figured I would call the boss and ask him to give me a ride or ask my son-in-law, somehow I would find a way to work.
At some point at the night I decided I would walk this morning. It’s 1.8 miles not really that far, some actually do consider that walking distance. Me not so much.
A good friend texted me this morning and offered me a ride after she dropped her son off at school, but I declined. I can do this I kept telling myself.
I started out shaky my ankles were weak the left one was hurting really bad. But I soldiered on. Because I favored that ankle my hip then started to hurt so about halfway through I was ready to stop.
I had already put it out to the world all over Facebook that I was going to walk and I was getting encouragement from family and friends. Humiliation kept me going I couldn’t stop because then what you can’t even walk a mile.
I made it to work in under an hour – 1.8 miles. I don’t know if that’s a good time or a bad time but all I know is I made it.
Oh yeah, I forgot I stir fry you in my wok, my face looks like it’s been stirfried after 1.8 mile walk.
