Lesson Learned, Again

For some reason I keep thinking I can't be lazy and have to try and walk at least a little bit. Today I just wanted to make a quick trip to the grocery store, seems easy enough. I still worry about Ava in the heat so I decided to take the tuk-tuk to the store and to walk home, baby steps. Getting there was a breeze, I picked up stuff for dinner without too much hassle, it's still hard for me to find things in the store but I'm getting better. So we step outside for the six or so block walk home and in block one it starts to rain, just a few drops, by block two it's pouring. As soon as the puddles begin to form, block three, Ava's hat flies off and lands in one. Block four and five we're relatively safe just a little wet, block six, puddles are getting bigger, a truck comes flying by and gets a nice big splash that completely soaks my entire left leg (some people get a big kick out of that). Every time I tell myself I have to get out of the house more and motivate to do so I come home thinking tomorrow I'm staying in, maybe I'll try again in a couple days...
