On Sunday when my friend Jane Wooden came over for lunch, I was complaining about patients. She gently reminded me that after retirement, daily exercise is our job. So today I kept reminding myself of that. I got up and did the daily knee exercises prescribed by the physical therapist, followed by my normal daily exercise routine. I then took a break to drive into town to the Falmouth Pet Center. I am concerned about the new fish we added to the aquarium this weekend and wanted to check to see if I should be feeding them something different. What I found out is that I needed to go home and return with a water sample to check ammonia and nitrate levels. But it was time for me to drive north to Sandwich for a PT evaluation. The drive there is 35-40 minutes, the appointment takes an hour, and then another 40 minutes home—another part of the ‘workday that takes time. Add to that a little shopping side trip, and it was late afternoon by the time I got home. I drove home to get a water sample from the aquarium and headed to town again. The aquarium balance is not too far off which is good news . . . so much to learn about keeping a healthy aquarium. And now tonight, I am back to the health thing, watching another episode in an autoimmune docu-series. So much to learn about staying healthy.
