joe was sure he’d come in first in the arthritis walk this past weekend. not that it was a race, but he knew he’d beat the “hobbling arthritics.”
we ended up arriving a little late for the walk, due to two lanes being shut down on the interstate unexpectedly and the wrong exit listed on the directions, but we headed out anyway, chatting with my brother, randy, and his friend, carla. we took the three-mile option and ended up catching up with the rest of the group. it was a good walk, though the uphill climb just about killed my knees. but it wasn’t too hot, and it was just enjoyable.
after the walk we found rachel and dave, joe’s sister and brother-in-law, and hung out with them, randy and carla. rachel had put a sticker on her back that said she was walking in support of me. i thought that was really nice.
then it was off to grab lunch, but nothing was open. we were hoping for california pizza kitchen, but it wasn’t opening for another half hour, so we stood in front of moe’s, UNpatiently waiting for them to open the door. hehe.
by the time we returned after visiting joe’s dad, we were exhausted. i couldn’t sleep, but joe passed out. that night, though, the exhaustion overcame me. i fell asleep at 9:30 p.m. while watching “fever pitch.” sad, i know, but i don’t care. 🙂
