    Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today:  2.44 miles;  Running Total: 228.00 miles)

    Day 265 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.

    Finished Week 4 of the C25K program. Today’s run was harder because I ran yesterday, and I usually take a day off between to do something else. I had to change around my schedule this week though since the kids will be out of school for Good Friday tomorrow.

    After radiation I noticed I’m starting to blister under my right arm. It hurts. I want to say something glib and funny, but I think radiation is burning off my sense of humor.

    I bought a compression sleeve.

    I found it at a medical supply store. I don’t know if it’s helping with the swelling in my arm or not. My forearm is still a little sore where the physical therapist said fluid was building up.

    Good news: the sleeve isn’t as uncomfortable as I thought it would be. And no one will even notice it under a long sleeved shirt.

    The glove though. Man, if that isn’t the ugliest fucking thing I’ve ever seen.

    My mom called me three times today. When I finally picked up the phone to return her call our conversation was brief.

    “You’ve called three times today. What is it?”

    “I was just seeing if you were okay.”

    “I’m fine. I just don’t want to talk.”

    “Oh. Okay. Goodbye.”

    “Bye.”

    I felt like an asshole but I also felt like being left alone. The last feeling won.

    Things that made me feel normal today:

    • running.
    • working on a new story for Camp Nanowrimo.
    • played with the kids then ordered them into the bathtub when they started driving me insane.
    • Star Trek.
    • wine.

    Today’s silver lining: Little pieces of normal.

    They’re there if I look hard enough.

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!
