It’s quiet.

It’s 1:17am and I am the only one awake in our home.

Amazing what trying to rebound from slipping and falling will do to you.

I crashed and burned about 9:30pm and Kept my aching body under the covers. I had a scare when walking the girls last night that the ligament behind the right knee was not feeling too supportive and I have not felt that in a long, long time.It’s hard to believe that it’s going to be three years since the knees were replaced.Jim and I both agree that we have to shake off this temporary abode malaise and start getting our act together. I personally am looking forward to having a fully working kitchen again and flatlands to exercise myself and the pups in.

Bring it on!

Below? An almost three year old picture of the knees while in rehab…lovely, right?

Ouch!….

I went to my Flip fitness class tonight and it was rough.

Sure, you take an anti-inflammatory after you fall once or twice on the ice, but then going to the class tonight was almost like insult to injury.We laugh a lot in the class, and sometimes I get a little goofy to cover the fact that I am physically hurting.Tonight was no exception, especially when we did the slow stretching.It was as though all the muscles that tightened from yesterday’s falls were really letting me know they weren’t too happy.

I’ll keep plugging along, with hopes that spring being just around the corner.

Falling….

…I’ll give you a hint: it isn’t in love.

We had an inch of snow flow an hour this morning and when I was walking down for the bus, I fell one time and it was very funny.There was so much snow and ice packed down, it was as if I dropped my butt on a chair made of snow.

After laughing about that and walking a little further down, my next fall wasn’t so funny.With two knee replacements I got a little scared because it felt like a ligament was hurt.Needless to say,I finally got up,waited for a bus that never came, and then had to walk up 4 long city blocks to a different bus’ stop.

**sigh**

Is it April yet?

Back to life as we know it.

It was kind of nice having five whole days in a row not checking in at the office.

It’s over.

I would like to make it in to work tomorrow,and it will truly be challenging, as they are calling for an inch an hour snowfall between 3 a.m. and 11 a.m……uh-huh..AGAIN! In honor of this forecast, I am calling it a night in order to get a good night’s sleep.By the way, throw in a dental appointment tomorrow ,too!

Catch you in the morning.

Olympic Games

I am over fifty and, while watching the Olympics, am very glad about the fact.

Regardless if it’s the snowboarding, bobsledding or downhill skiing, I have to give these
athletes a ton of credit.To do what they do, besides having a lot of years of training, is being fearless.I watch them going down the hills or tracks and watching them go in the air or do anything with speed,it is amazing.I can just imagine being at the beginning of what they are doing and being paralyzed with fear.

God bless these young athletes, and, better them than me**lol**.

Out in the boonies…

I get really frustrated with the internet and the blog.

I know WordPress is normally a pretty reliable blogging platform, but when you are lout here on a mountain, well, you have to hope the gods of the internet are on your side, I guess. I tried to blog last night and there was no way in hell the internet was letting me on this site.

Oh well.

We are having a wonderful time with our friends and enjoying their hospitality.Our girls get along pretty eel with their girls and life is good.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Long Weekends

The best part about long weekends is when they are unexpected.

The office has been closed for two days and it is President’s weekend. It is really crazy, because,for me, it is like gold falling from the sky.

We are hanging out with our buddies, catching up after almost a year of not catching up in person-much too long! It has the promise of being an awesome weekend!

If you have the gift of a three-day weekend, enjoy it.Just a regular two-day? Enjoy that too! Relax…life is too short.
