i am so achy, thanks to the magic of the gears and rails and trains that loop at lightspeed. we rode long, smooth, snakelike coasters and jumpy, shakey, rattly trains. i really do love a good roller coaster — the head spinning, arm flailing, stomach leaping thrill of it all — but i discovered i am not as limber as i used to be. i walked, not ran, from ride to ride. i scowled when the girls splashed me on the log ride. and i complained more than once about the pains in my neck and head and back. how sad. i am old.
after driving the girls back to church and myself back home, i kicked off my smelly sneakers, stripped down and slid into a hot bubble bath, scrubbing and rubbing the pain away.
seaweed face wash and peppermint lotion make me feel so clean and soft, again. a fresh coat of nail polish and i feel brand new.
