Sore Muscles and Wanderlust all in One Day

I am so stiff this morning I can hardly move! Nothing to do with the surgery site, just my muscles. I read this is a common thing after surgery when you ease back into normal routines, and I did do some things yesterday. Apparently, those muscles you've not really used for awhile want to ache a little. I say a little but I had to take Alieve first thing this morning. I didn't really think I was doing that much yesterday. Oh well, I'll live.

I also woke up with that thing I experience at times called "Wanderlust". I don't know if my parent's trip has brought this on or if I am just getting sick of being at home all the time. I can't explain how it pulls me though. I know it sounds crazy but I long to visit China, England, or Africa! I want to try different foods, I want to see how other people live, I want to hear different languages. And I'm not kidding. It's almost painful. (yeah, I'm weird I know.)
The best I could do today is a trip to Walmart and that is not going to cut it.

I just don't think a trip to Wal-Mart is going to cut it either. Sounds like you need to find a book about far-a-way lands and visit with your eyes.

Rent Ryan's Daughter and see Ireland.

Rent Out of Africia and see Africa.

Rent Howard's End and see England.

LOL, thanks Shirley, maybe I need a subscription to a travel magazine too.
