This is my last End of Summer blog; I know autumn isn't for a few more days, but I feel I've gone as far as I can with this series. I've blogged about my job issues, my knee issues, my food issues... boy, it's seems I have a LOT of stressful pro... Read more

Lost my job; it was mostly OK the first day, but hit me harder yesterday, when I had more time to think about it. Sometimes I feel like 15 years is now wasted; sometimes I feel lucky that I had the job because it got my older son through college... Read more

Skipped again last night... Got the news that workman's comp has shut down my PT sessions. Since I can 'kinda' do the stairs, I'm considered functional and no longer need to go in for physical therapy. They even cancelled the last two sessions t... Read more

Today was my first 'mystery walk' of the new season. Ed calls me when he's leaving the industrial park where he works, and I tie on my shoes and walk up the street. The mystery comes in because I never know how far I'll get before we meet up, an... Read more

Guess I forgot to check in yesterday... well, it was an up and down sort of day, so I'm not surprised. PT is moving along, getting tougher every time I go in. Not counting the work I'm doing on my own on the off days. I see the surgeon next week... Read more

Had a great lunch today; wish I had taken a photo to share. I read in a magazine about grilling romaine lettuce, after brushing it with a bit of Italian dressing or olive oil. Grill wasn't available, so I 'toasted' it a bit in a hot frying pan. ... Read more

Going to my older son's house for a BBQ, to celebrate his wife's b'day. Will be bringing some healthy goodies: carrot & celery sticks, apples for dipping and pineapple for grilling. I know there will be cake and ice cream, but I can have very sm... Read more

Still in some residual pain from all the PT last week, but I did get more steps in today, and I practiced doing the stairs at church. I know it looks funny, but there are more railing at church than here at home, so it's easier to do. A new... Read more

I don't even know what to say about today. Went to a bridal shower for my niece, and while I was there, I had a great time. But as soon as I got home, the depression started to sneak in the back door. I feel like nothing is ever going to change ... Read more

I have cleaned out more junk this year than in past years, a LOT more. I’m working on my fifth box of stuff, all to be donated to the church for their Holly Day Bazaar, which is in a month or so. My next big project is to go through the large dr... Read more

Did some heavy-duty workouts, both the PT and on the elliptical at the gym. I ache all over, and I know it will be worse tomorrow. But my numbers are looking good: the knee has more flexability, and I've lost a pound this week. So I keep telling... Read more

I'm starting to lose track of the days. I've not worked since the first week in May, and it doesn't look like I have a job anymore. The surgeon let the HR rep at work know 2 weeks ago that I was ready for light duty, but she hasn't gotten back t... Read more

Grocery shopping and other errands today, walking and yoga... It still feels weird to skip certain aisles in the grocery store. No chips,cake,candy... I still feel the call but can ignore it better if I avoid those certain areas in the stor... Read more
