For example, when I work the closing shift on Tuesday and either Friday or Saturday, I get to turn off the Self-Check machine we have sitting on a counter at the public desk.
I had that same sort of light feeling of relief, like a burden has been lifted, driving home last night when the sun was still out. It isn't like four or five months of the year I suffer terribly driving home in the dark...but again, I become more aware of how I dislike it when it is gone.
I was already thinking about these things when I did something to my knee this morning. My left knee has been hurting on and off, at very low levels, for the past couple of months at least. Nothing too horrible and sometimes not even there, I thought. But this morning in bed I stretched and felt a sort of painful pop...and my knee is now pain-free in a way of which I am accutely aware. So weird.
I guess this all just goes to show...something. Not entirely sure what, but am willing to hear theories :)
