  1. Life Is Work

  2. Ho Hum

    So - my leg still isn't healing very well. There is a couple places that probably will need ski grafts. I did FINALLY get permission to start some weight bearing at least - and the rest of the staples are out.
  3. A Ridiculous Day!

    So today has been a ridiculous day, truly unproductive and wasted...all of my own design...I woke up to a blue sky and instead of making a tea and going to sit in the sun on my balcony, I grabbed the newspaper and headed for the couch.

  5. Not quite as planned Day #1 and #2

    Ok, so day #1 of my menu plan didn't go off as expected. Dh's grandma was taken to the hospital so I went up there directly after work and we ate in the hospital cafeteria.

She has dementia which worsened when dh's grandpa died a year and a half ago. She also happens to be in the same nursing home my sister works in, so she can keep an eye on her.
