Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House

1 tramadol with Tylenol on board, may take 2nd tramadol. More pain free walking will greatly fix one of the 3 knee issues keeping me sitting way too long.

Packing corner cleared, banker's boxes left open for a last few items and clearly labeled as to contents, destinations, instructions.

The big bin from the laundry room is in LR now. 90+ day forecast here, so LR handling w AC is necessary. Another thing I can do in here today is move old paid bills into the "To Shred" box, which will free up the plastic portable file box now that bills are paperless.

Hardi kindly did a big lift while I napped earlier, putting a 60-lb up cube of water up where I can reach it. Two gallons are drawn, for bringing in on my next trip out there. It'll be odd drawing more, now that the gray bin's lid is no longer under it to catch spills or set gallons aside once drawn.

Newbie is very confused about why I'm in her chair and she's in mine, but my knee is temporarily happy... or that might be the tramadol kicking in! In any event, that chronic knee issue does best if I rotate all sitting among 3-6 chairs. A lunch foray will tell me if I need to take more.

Re pain mgmt, my philosophy and practice is Function Over Feelings-- if the pain is on top of me instead of me on top of IT-- and I'm not moving enough to maintain strength-- that's when to use a few to reboot back to moving. I regularly offer my docs to refer me to a pain clinic for alternative management, but they approve of my FOF approach.
