We’ve been off the boat for 4 months now and it’s not been good for either of us.
Our combined health is suffering caused by the stress of living in a house again, and our emotions are all over the place, especially anger! That being directed towards realtors.
The other effect has been the loss of physical activity and that has taken its toll i.e. on piles the weight. 6 lbs actually. Why did we sell the boat again?
Anyway old injuries and lack of exercise (too milksop and pussy is house living) has increased pain levels for me to the ‘ouch’ level again so I’m back to regularly popping chemicals again. In short I’ve consumed more pain relief in these four months than in the last three years. With pain relief of this caliber (think 9mm in hot load 2Z), my power of concentration, let alone what cognitive thinking I ever had, is slipping quickly away to moron level.
p.s. The spiders are back!
Add to that LOADS driving long distances for SWMBO as we view houses (not doing her or me much good) and I can’t wait until we find somewhere, move in, and I can get back to a meaningful existence, i.e. doing the place up gently. Plus, if we get it right and find a decent enough place, we’ll both be foraging and growing veggies again. Real food at last!
Anyway, what did the doc say about it? “Get more exercise”, and gives me more pills.
Still I’m sat there, annoyed, and thinking “Really, how, where, and doing what?”
Nice guy, really, but I still can’t pronounce his name 😦
Ask most who live frugally, it’s NEVER about sitting around in couch potato mode, there is always something to do (unless you are a total idiot). Water, fuel, waste, almost constant maintenance, and just getting to and from the boat (sticks or not) was damn good exercise.
Sigh, time for yet another cup of tea.
That’ll burn off at least 20 calories.
I’d kill for a chocolate bar BUT that’s firmly off the menu for the foreseeable future!
