This was a bummer day. I woke up at 5:45 a.m. and my knees were giving me intense pain. My sinuses also were dealing me a fit. So I got up, and took an allergy pill and a pain pill and hoped they would kick in so I could go to church. Howeve... Read more

I will give a warning, this blog is probably going to be a downer. That is how I am feeling. I had a good night's sleep, and was up until we went to see my priest friend at the Skilled Nursing Center. No. 1, it took me way to long to go see h... Read more

Relatively quiet day. Went to church. I was supposed to lector a reading but my knees hurts so bad that I let Margaret do it. Walking the 4 steps to the ambo is rough and someone had made a comment, although not intentional, but imitated my w... Read more
