Dear Lord,

Why do I feel my joints now and not when I was younger? I won’t ask to feel like new because I did break this body in, but after a walking a long time I should be feeling great, not my hips.

Okay, I’ll concede Lord, you didn’t tell me to walk with her for several miles in my arms, nor did you tell me to leave the stroller at home. I just figured that I’ll be carrying the stroller AND my daughter so why not just pick one to complain about.

Since we’re on the subject, it would be nice to bounce back quickly like I did when I was younger. It would make it easier to catch up to my daughter.

Okay, so I won’t complain too much. We did have fun before I was in pain, and my daughter did go to sleep at 6pm because she enjoyed herself. That did allow me to have 4 hours to myself before I went to sleep.

Thank you for not letting me go stir crazy. Also, thanks for allowing me to pass out when my head finally hit the pillow.

I also want to thank you for common sense. I decided to make sure my family ate an early dinner before heading home (so no guilt here).

Despite the pain, I’m looking forward to do it again. I’ll ask my trainer to step up her game so next time I’ll be ready.
