Five years…

Some days it seems like only yesterday.

This upcoming Thursday marks five years since my double knee replacements.I remember taking the girls for a last walk the night before the surgery, and as I walked down the hill toward the field, I felt the crunching in my knees and thought that it’s the last time I’ll hear that sound and feel that feeling.

So much has changed in those five years.

My Mom is gone,we left the city,I retired…I can go on and on.

Fortunately,with my union bargained medical benefits.I managed to get through the whole deal,and the pain is a faint memory.

Life goes on.

Hair today, not Tomorrow …

Despite our beach walk this morning, I have managed to sneak a hair appointment in for this afternoon. It’ll be kind of weird because Diane, who normally does my hair, won’t be there.

She is home recuperating from a knee replacement : ironic, isn’t it ? Unlike me, she only needed one. However, she had to be out through January, as she is on her feet all day, so they have to make sure her knee is ok.

The girl doing my hair today, Diane assures me, is good…we’ll see.

**fingers crossed**
