I Don't Know........

Don't know why I haven't written for a few days.  Time has just slipped away, I guess.  Who knows!  But I am just certain that I have lots to report on.

The roof is done, thank GOD!  It's quiet and Murphy is happy once again.  All is well in her little kitty world :)

I've been out driving on my own, even tho' the Doctor said to wait 6 weeks.  It felt SO good!  I love driving, even if it's just to go on errands or even if it's just to drive!  Mostly I love road trips, but it's been a coon's age since I've been on one of those! (and NO, that's not a racial term).  Racoons tend to live quite awhile, unless some poor boy that has a pet coon also has a little sister that feeds them poison berries!  In a case like that, they don't live long....I'm pretty sure he knew I didn't mean to kill his coon.

Anyway, I have driven to town to pick up a prescription and to visit the newly remodeled Dolla@r General nearby.  Boy, are they ever cleaning up their act!  Wal*Mart has started opening new little stores called Wal*Mart Express that is supposed to be similar to Doll@r General stores so I guess they figured they better re-group and they have done a damn fine job of it, right down to the new staff at this one!  Anyhoo, I also drove to Missouri (about 20 miles round trip) to get cigarettes (yeah, I'm still smoking....whatever) and that went well.  I don't like the angle that I have to adjust my seat in order to be sitting properly or that I have to be quite so far back so I can keep my leg as straight as possible, but after next week I think I should be able to sit normally and can readjust my seat.  I'm just glad that the seats are electronic and can be adjusted in so many ways!

A week from today is my follow appointment with the Surgeon and I can barely wait!  I hope he thinks I'm doing as well as my PT guy does and lifts a bunch of restrictions.  There are some changes that can take place at the 6 week mark, but many of them have to wait until 3 months or 6 months.  I'll take what I can get for now, tho', but I won't do anything I'm not supposed to do until he says it's okay.  Well, except the driving thing.

Yeah - except the driving thing and the cigarettes and probably a few more little things you "forgot" to mention. LOL. I knew you couldn't wait. But I am glad that you feel well enough to try it out. Hope you get a great report on your dr. visit next week.

Ummmm......I didn't forget to mention anything! Really.....Ahem. And this Dr knows I smoke and he never said anything. Didn't tell me to quit. Who am I not to listen to what my Dr doesn't say?!?! Hee hee.

It is so wonderful to see you up and about doing things again. And writing too! I am smiling like a goof over here. Can you see me?

It's wonderful you're able to drive again. I hate being stuck without my wheels, even if I can't go very far!
