Just an update

I didn't do a darn thing today except look after Carrie which was no mean feat. She entertained herself at the computer. I was amazed that after she left there was nothing to pickup and put away.

I do have to curtail how much time she spends on the computer. I'm going to make it a point to get her outside on the nice days.

I called the ortho surgeon today and made an appointment to see him. I have an appointment on Jan.8th. I was surprised that I could get in that soon. I'm going to see what he has to say about my knee. I dread the thought of surgery but I don't like the limits this knee is placing on me right now. I've taken care of many of this surgeons' ortho patients. He is the best in town and he is who I want for this surgery. I had to make sure he took my insurance which he does so now we shall see how this goes.

I just spent hours on the phone with Ms. K. and we did nothing related to computer learning. She was listening to life stories, mine. The things that happened to me while I was on the road, the places and the near disasters that were my life. She said she was surprised I wasn't dead and it surprises me too. I told her my mom carried life insurance on me till I was thirty years old because she knew I wouldn't live to see thirty!

I must be paying for all that fun time now. If I hadn't rode a cycle or if I hadn't crashed while skiing, my knee wouldn't need surgery. I've broken bones in my ankle and a few ribs. All in all I think I survived it well. I know it could have been worse. I could NOT be here writing this.

I talked with Ted in Florida. He is ready to come home and I'm ready to see him. His only request was to have "breakfast" for dinner when he gets home. That we can do.

I'm going to try to take that trip to Lydia tomorrow. It's late and I need to be in bed.
The end!


  1. Speaking for myself, the ride was well worth every painful souvenir I tote around.

  2. Sometimes I wonder...but in my heart I wouldn't have had it any other way.
    I had to try everything once and if I liked it..well you know!
