What irritates you Monday is a meme thought up by Delores from The Feathered Nest.
Here, on a Monday, we get a chance to vent our little, or not so little, things that irritate us.
Today, my irritation is....
Yes, that's right.
I irritate myself.
Silly, I know, but there it is.
I overdo things when swimming, or walking, or cleaning house (flat). Anything else.
Here's the thing.....it's hot, so I'll go swimming. Doc says it will be good for my back and when I'm in the water I do feel pretty good. So I make my way up and down the lane several times, then I'll think....just one more. And that's the one. The overdo.
By the time I get home I'm pretty achy and by the next day I can barely get out of bed.
The thing is, I can't put a number on the lengths I can swim, some days I do four or six and that does me in, last time I did twelve, and suffered for it the next day.
Walking is the same. Some days I'll go around the block twice, some days I can walk to Unley Road and back which is an hour and a half.
I never know which one will lay me flat the next day.
Resting is the same. Too much and I've stiffened up.
So my irritation isn't just mental, me being cross with myself, it is also physical.
Yesterday my knees were stuffed. And that irritates me greatly.
I'm going to have to come up with a plan.
5 minutes of this....10 minutes of that......hire someone else to scrub my floor.....
Do I sound like I'm whinging?
Of course I do. I know it, you know it.
