Yesterday was one of those days. It wasn’t particularly bad for any reason. I was just having a personal not so great day. One of those days where I try NOT to interact with people – for their own sake
Forced myself to take Duma on our morning walk because not doing that would only have made me more annoyed all day. That was good I may have even sat in the hot tub when I got home – an attempt to loosen up my back and elevate my mood before starting actual work. It worked – a little.
Anyhoo – got through the day without incident, other than just being generally annoyed for no real reason at all.
Took Dude to his hitting lesson. Again – yay! Love his hitting coach and love watching his lessons and love his mood when he’s done with them. He has a great time, gets a big workout in an hour, and just has fun. Everyone left the facility about 10 minutes before his lesson was over.
So when his lesson was over, I helped him shag the balls, then I stepped into the box. Dude soft tossed to me for awhile, then actually pitched a little.
Neither one of us rocked the batting cage at this point, but man was it FUN!
Coach told Dude that he better be careful – throw and duck – or I was going to kill him Hee hee!
Now THIS little 10 minute episode definitely elevated my mood. It’s always fun to “play” a sport I’ve loved for a long time. It’s even more fun when your kids are finally old enough and big enough to actually play with you for real.
My plan was to head to the hot tub last night – I am over 40 afterall – hoping to lesson the muscle pain I’d feel today.
That didn’t happen – I watched a horse movie with Princess instead.
So this morning, I made a visit to the Over 40 Cabinet . . . I’m not nearly as sore as I thought I’d be. I’m actually expecting it more tomorrow! It’s like my body is old enough that it can’t even catch up with the soreness sensors!
Or, my increased physical activity the past month might actually be helping . . . who knows.
At any rate . . . it was a blast to have that kind of fun with Dude. I’m glad I have access to ibuprofen in the Over 40 Cabinet. And I can’t wait to do it again!
