Today fit into the category of the new normal. No phone calls with you have to do this NOW and no need to run into town when I just was there yesterday. I also think I may have found the best formula for keeping my shoulder pain to a degree I ... Read more

It can take me hours to find a way I can lay without either my right knee and thigh bothering me or my left shoulder. Eventually the thigh pain will improve but I'm told it could take up to 2 years because it's a muscle they cut when they repl... Read more

It was a blast baking all day. There just are not enough reasons to do that anymore. No one wants to eat the things you bake anymore. And I do love to bake. I made 6 dozen sugar cookies, 7 dozen little meriegine thumb print cookies filled wi... Read more

I did sleep in and would have laid and listened to the wind longer if the dog hadn't needed to go out so bad. So I got up and accomplished all sorts of things today. The laundry is all caught up, the kitchen has gotten a once over, (including ... Read more
