Hand Me My Cane, Will Ya?

The weekend came and went. The downside of Saturday was that I got really sad about something and I’m still having trouble shaking it. I know it’s not a BIG deal, but it feels big.

Yesterday was doctor day, finally! So, for all of you who have been waiting breathlessly for news of the ol’ hip we, not-so-happily, announce the arrival of Bursitis. For all those young uns out there Bursitis by definition means: inflammation of a fluid-filled sac bursa of the body, particularly at the elbow, knee, or shoulder joint. Lucky me, I’ve got it in my left hip joint.

So, while I’m not doing any damage by walking two miles, it’s not getting any better. The hip is a very difficult spot to stretch. High ho, high ho off to physical therapy I go.

The workout at Curves is actually pretty good. I didn’t know what to expect but I have found that if you do it the way you are supposed that you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Speaking of Curves, the homework is going to kill me. This week alone I have to memorize the machines names, which muscles they work, and where those muscles are located. I have pages and pages to read, a video to watch, and work pages to complete.

You know I hated PE in high school and I was never all that crazy about homework. Add into the mix that I’m trying to plan a huge event for 200 people, write for the other site, and I have company in the form of Master W. There’s a lot going on. If I can pull all this off, well, I may indeed be Wonder Woman!

I leave you with some pics of Soldier Girl and her boys. The coming year is going to bring some big changes to all our lives. I hope we’re all up to the challenge!

Time for another pearl of wisdom from my late mom-in-law --
The more you do, the more you CAN do. You WILL amaze yourself! Saying that, I'll pray for you...
