Enjoying the day

Scott wanted a day out to go to a card show, but wasn’t comfortable leaving me here by myself.  He suggested I go down and spend the day with Mama.  But that would entail taking the leg exercising machine, my meds, my heating pad, my walker, blah, blah, blah.  So the solution was for Dianne to spend the afternoon with me after she got her transfusion this morning.  She brought me Chinese for lunch and we had a good long visit, no tv, no phones, just girl talk.  We did a complete virtual remodel of her house, talked some about our plans for our first trip post surgery, and did what sisters do-enjoyed each other’s company.

Also had a nice visit and surprise gift from my dear friend Joan Bush.  She’s always so thoughtful and helpful.  I don’t realize how much I miss old friends until I see them again.  Hope we’ll be able to have another visit together soon.

Now it’s time to get back into the torture machine and stretch that knee, then do my round of exercises, then sit around and moan cause I’m stiff and sore.  But I have been able to take some steps without the walker today, made up the beds, and managed to do some laundry, so things are getting better everyday.

I am blessed to have such a caring family, Scott the babysitter, housekeeper, tote and fetch guy and Dianne who knows how to just be when I need her.

Now awaiting an overnight visit from Leslie as we get ready for baby shower number two tomorrow with a Georgia Bulldog/tail gate party theme.  Looks like it’s going to be really cute.  Shower number three will be in Feb., then we’ll have a break until the next baby boom in the family.
