I Think I Overdid Today
The electrician's visit in the morning meant some book boxes had to be moved. My husband did his best but I know it was hard on him, since he can't bend over all the way and pick things up. So after the electrician left, I put everything back. I was careful but I still probably didn't exactly follow doctor's orders.
After I made my posts this morning, I decided I should probably go for a walk, since I've skipped the past two days. I had only gone two blocks when I saw my neighbor working in her garden and stopped to talk. She had just pulled out a pincushion flower plant she was going to throw away, and I talked her into giving it to me, instead. I thought I might be able to root parts of it. Of course that meant I had to do some more bending over to get the slips into soil and plant a few seeds from the dry flowers. I'm really not supposed to be gardening, and I didn't do anything heavy, but my neck muscles are a bit sore tonight. I didn't even think to wear my collar because I don't have to wear it around home.
I don't think I hurt my neck surgery with any of this, but the muscles do hurt a bit. After I finished with the planting, I tried to finish the walk but got tired more easily than usual so only did about four blocks one way. So all the walking was about twelve blocks total. Not much.
