today was a nice day as was the weather, finally. i went for an afternoon walk without a coat and it was so peaceful that for a minute i listened to the silence. then i inserted my ear plugs in my ear and listened to one song for my entire 40+ minute walk. surprisingly, i felt better than i have on my previous walks and maintained a decent pace.
after i got home, i showered and rested until it was time to leave for a family dinner at the olive garden i thought was tomorrow. it was fun; my family is crazy and we always have a great time laughing and telling stories. tonight was no different.
