Aches and Pains
Volleyball season started last night. My friends would know that today by just looking at me. While physical exercise is very good for me to keep ahead of the stiffness arthritis causes, I have new places to ache every year the first few days after the first night of play. We are not players like the girls above. With the exception of my sister, no one on my team is diving for balls, and she may have decided this year that isn't the wisest. My wrists hurt from bumping the ball. My fingers feel jammed. My knee is another quarter bigger. But I love it, or at least I love the Wednesday night, no guys, no kids, night. We ended up at the bar and grill close to me. I just had a my soft Sprite and cranberry as I knew I was going to be needing the ibuprofen. I was right.
