What is it about men and toilets?
Monday, January 28, 2013      4 comments

Especially young men? Now, I know for a fact that we have raised our sons to PUT THE SEAT BACK DOWN when they are done. My son's friend, for whatever reason, thinks it is ok to leave the seat up and turn the light off before the boys leave for h... Read more
What's up with the plows??
Monday, January 28, 2013      5 comments

This is the only town I have ever seen that the snowplows pile the snow up onto the sidewalks at the intersections so it is totally impossible to use the crosswalks! I had to get out today for labs and therapy (if it weren't for labs, I wou... Read more
Seriously tired

Didn't feel like doing anything again today. Barely had the energy to do any of my exercises for my leg. My muscles are still rebelling against the cold and snow. I am HOPING to get out of the house safely tomorrow for therapy and bloodwork at t... Read more
Another slugfest day
Saturday, January 26, 2013      1 comments

Meaning all I felt like doing was lay around and not do much. I did do quite a bit of knitting. And my exercise for my knee, of course. But that was about it. The snow is pretty, but I'm not going out in it when I don't have to. I was even ... Read more

So I got to wear my broomball shoes! Yay! They are SO cool! My mother-in-law is the BEST! I made it to therapy. My knee does NOT like the weather change, it is seriously stiff and swelled. I still got decent numbers at therapy though. I ha... Read more
Still cold out

And my tub drain is still frozen. I waited all day yesterday for the plumber to come back and he never did. I went to therapy and for my bloodwork this morning, with my luck he came while I was gone. And I was only out of the house for 2 hours! ... Read more

Plumber had to come back today to see if bathroom had thawed yet. We thought kitchen had re-froze because it wouldn't do more than trickle. Turns out when it thawed a bunch of rust clogged the faucet all up, so he had to take it apart and clean ... Read more
Too dang cold!

What a day! Got up to get ready for my appt with ortho for him to check the ROM in the knee after the manipulation, and NO water! (Wondering how my son took a shower before school?) Called the utility company to see if there was work going on, t... Read more
Ups and Downs
Monday, January 21, 2013      3 comments

Ups-haven't needed as much pain medication today. Scheduled an extra therapy session for Thursday morning. Managed an HOUR in the pool, and that was AFTER therapy! Made it back out of the pool (barely) and home. Downs-only 90 degrees of b... Read more
Blech day
Sunday, January 20, 2013      6 comments

Not good, not really bad, just blech. Grey, cold, yucky out. No pretty snow. (Okay, that's probably good because then it would be slick as snot out) Leg aches, but not excessively painful. I knitted a lot today. I took a couple of naps. I haven'... Read more
Trying to get back to "normal"
Saturday, January 19, 2013      3 comments

I spent 6 hours knitting today. I'm nearly finished with my prayer shawl and I need to start getting things made for the summer's farm market. I have enough yarn for several fisherman's sweaters, so I started one of those. Plus I want to enter t... Read more
The knee is good, everything else?
Friday, January 18, 2013      5 comments

Not so much. I came home yesterday and son was gone. He "didn't want to put up with cranky mom". I couldn't believe he had the nerve to say that! Like he does so much for me!? And the chores he does so are done to the bare minimum and when he do... Read more

The manipulation is done. The Dr was able to bend it to 110, but he said not to expect to be able to do that myself yet, lol. I woke up in excruciating pain, but not from the knee. It was all muscle spasms! It took a few different meds, but... Read more

Not too patiently, I'm willing to admit. I wanted to go swimming today. I KNOW I won't feel like it for at least a day or two (or ten, lol) after the manipulation tomorrow, so I wanted to do it before that. BUT they needed me to come home and wa... Read more
Sucking it up and getting it done

The manipulation on my knee, that is. I almost forgot to get my labs done yesterday, and when I finally got there in the afternoon-I ran into my Orthopedic nurse. I talked to her for a few minutes about everything that's going on with mom ... Read more
