Life: It Goes On - August 31
I've had a weird week - walking down the stairs at work when my knee popped and I felt something tear. With help from The Big Guy I got myself to the doctor and discovered that I had torn my meniscus. Now I know why football players writhe around on the ground when they tear something in their knees - holy buckets did that hurt! My knee has been sore since and weak so I've been hobbling along all weak with the aid of a cane. I can do most things fine but it has made me rely more on others. I'm going to use it as an excuse to spend the next couple of days lazying around, reading.
This Week I'm:
Listening To: I finished Death Of A Cad and I've listened to about half of Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway. While I'm enjoying it, I find it easy for my mind to wander when I'm listening while driving and this is an easy one for that to happen with.
Watching: College football! Speaking of watching, I'm so sad to find that A&E has cancelled "Longmire." Everyone in my house loves that show so we're hoping another network will want to pick up a show that has as many viewers as "Longmire" does even though it had a rerun as a lead in.
Reading: Liar Temptress Soldier Spy by Karen Abbott - really interesting look a female spies on both sides of the Civil War.
Planning: On having surgery Tuesday to fix my knee. Not looking forward to the surgery but I'm definitely looking forward to having a knee that works again - it's been sore for a couple of weeks before it finally tore.
Grateful for: My hubby who has taken such great care of me this week!
Enjoying: Celebrating a season opening Husker victory with Mama Shepp's kids! One day I'll turn my basement into a adult space - but for now I love that it's a place where they can feel comfortable.
Feeling: Anxious. I'm so over having surgeries!
Looking forward to: Being able to get out and walk again!
