Here We Are…

Nearly a month since I sat down here… figured I better get here before the End of The World… ya know… just in case!  LOL

We have had 7 straight days of rain here – certainly not the flooding along the Mississippi – but I’m so ready for some sunshine!  I need it for my mental health…

Physically I am slowly getting stronger… when I come down the stairs and realize I forgot something upstairs – I usually go back up and get it… if I really need it… sooner than later… sometimes.

I got to 90 degrees a couple weeks ago and then came to almost a screeching halt only gaining 6 degrees since then.  That has been very discouraging for me – but they are still very up beat at Therapy and believe I can continue to gain slowly but surely.

So I decided to take a pro-active approach and I joined a local Health Club this week.  It has a large facility, hundreds of pieces of equipment, lots of programs, and a warm water (92 degrees) therapy pool – which is what I am most interested in.  Although shopping for workout clothes and a bathing suit might just do me in… too much walking… and that’s just from the parking lot… LOL

I won’t be going back to work at the shop until the fall… I want to focus on my rehab and getting back to doing my normal everyday activities.  I need to get back to doing housework, laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking on a regular basis… who would have ever thought I’d look forward to doing those things!

at least now you can go outside and SIT and soak up a little summer. when I needed a swimsuit FAST I ordered from LLBean I think--they have lots and you are able to buy tops and bottoms separately.

I'm so glad that you're taking time to heal well. It's a pain in the butt however it'll be good for you in the long run.
Heal well!!!

The sun came out today and it felt like summer.....way too much rain here too. Kept checking my feet to be sure they hadn't gotten webbed overnight. Keep your chin up my dear....and don't think this extended medical leave has gotten you off the hook with your Quilt College requirements. I'm going to get back on your butt in the Fall.
