Today's been a rough, rough day. The 5 hour time change had us crash and burn. We managed to get out and do some shopping. We managed to scrape together a meal. We managed to do what needed to be done. But not much more.
It's been nice to be back in my power wheelchair, it gives freedom and independence. But I have to say we managed pretty well over in the UK in my manual chair, getting everywhere we needed to with minimum fuss. We are very clearly acclimatized to travelling with the chair. Even so, the power chair was nice. The only drawback was that we found places that had been fully accessible now were only barely so. With Christmas displays clogging the aisles I had to be so very careful that I found my temper fraying. We decided to wait until I was more rested before trying to negotiate these newly tight spaces.
So, I apologise for having a lack luster blog post today. I wanted to write a bit more but I am using all my energy pushing my body and soul five hours back. What work that is! I'm hoping that tonight will bring a restful sleep and that riding the bus to the office will give a sense of both time and normality. I'm hoping that my internal alarm clock won't wake me at midnight.
Hope your Monday is wonderful!
