I didn't stop to refold my pant leg into my boot.
I got a ride there, and walked back.
I got my back straightened, did a few errands and went grocery shopping for the first time in over 2 weeks.
Which, in real terms means:
My thighs nearly froze, I lost a chunk from the front of my leg where the corner of the hem of my jeans dug in and rubbed for 4 blocks, I was walking into the wind so my cheeks are all wind-burnt and hot, and I feel like I was working out at the gym for a couple of hours at least. Tired and achy!
The girl wasn't kidding when she said it took her a good couple of months to get back to feeling normal! (my friend who had the same surgery a couple of years ago)
Good thing that bed is still comfortable.
