I was inspired by my friend Darlene’s blog entry about growing younger, to be more careful about falling into increasing sedentary-ness. I like being sedentary, and with my arthritis, my body is often telling me to sit down and shut up, but I do need to fight back.
I decided I would start by painting my laundry room. Day 1, I sanded down the dark wood-paneled walls common to 60’s and 70’s era ranch-style homes. Day 2 (today) I finished putting the primer coat on. Day 3, tomorrow, I will begin painting. I am sore. But happy about the change.
I am telling myself it’s not about getting the project over and done with in one day. It’s ok if it takes a little longer. I had been putting it off because I hadn’t felt up to doing it in a single day. Silly thinking.
