Top o'th' morning

You know, I'm starting to think that scheduling a PT session for 8:00 am every Monday morning may not be such a good idea. There's something inherently suspect about starting one's work week being manipulated by a strong young sailor almost to the point of tears*. Not real tears, of course; more like, "yeah, there's fluid pooling in the corners of my eyes but I'm not really crying or anything" tears.

Shit, no wonder I'm having mood issues.

So this marks the start of my seventh week of PT. Seventh of... who knows? I have been making measurable progress but it's slow going. I've been trying to figure out why I haven't been doing my stretches at home, and I think I've found the answer. Picture this: End of a long day, dinner is cooked and eaten, other chores completed. I can finally sit on the couch and stare at something mindless and amusing on the TV... or I can go upstairs and hurt myself because I'm supposed to.

I don't know about you, but that's not much of a choice in my book. Or is it just me? Don't answer that.

* Sounds much more fun than is it, unfortunately.


  1. You could have me hurt you, but I'm thinking/hoping neither one of us have that sort of bent.

    Hang in there. Raoul is always available for massages.


  2. Scheduling anything at 8a on a Monday morning is not a good idea.

    In college I had a 7:50a PE class - swimming! To this day I have no idea how I ever made it, but I did, every frickin' class. Go me. Oh to have that dedication now.

  3. Oh it is definitely a CHOICE. And there's no doubt in my mind that you've chosen the correct thing to do. We all need breaks from pain. Do you know The Torturer made me stay extra long yesterday because he said he "knew" I wouldn't do anything extra once I got home. And the problem with that is??? I'd already spent two and a half hours with him .... at some point I need to have a LIFE.

    OK -- done venting! Make sure and read my post tomorrow (wed). I'm expecting to lose all my readers by offending them ....

    Who me????

  4. @cary: Oh, I hear ya. It may as well be the middle of the fucking night.

    @24: Ooo! Offensive? I'll be right over!
