Added to that, I was cold last night. I should have gotten up to put on socks and grab another blanket, but instead I kept trying to find the warmth inside my comforter and blanket. Not there. The one source of continual warmth was Stretch, who loves to tuck in next to me, snuggled up against my neck, my face, when I lie on my side. I always like it initially, but as with any person or cat in my bed with me, I always feel the need to adjust my position again and again, which is awkward for the other. Eventually Stretch left the bed, to return in the early morning, but Bullet, who is not so interested in cuddling, lay at the head of the bed, near me, close enough for me to reach out and touch when I wanted. I don't know what it is about having cats sleeping on my bed. I always like it.
Added to the cold is my leg. I did damage it yesterday. It has gone into another one of those "flareup" kind of things. It develops an odd kind of stiffness and it hurts. I am debating my options now. I think that I will try to swim, see how that goes, leave off the bike for now. I'd like to do another thing besides swimming but maybe it isn't wise just now. Nor is jumping into the pool. The steps are there for a reason.
