Most of my time has been spent on the sofa. While I love my relaxation moments, there are certain moments I go absolutely nuts. That's temporary and normal. But I do know for sure that I'll never take my mobility for granted. I've got three weeks to go for non-weight bearing (I hope) and can get the go-ahead for the boot (I lovingly call my "telephone pole").
I got my bandages changed yesterday at the doc's office and it all looks fine. Just some bruising at the heel and a 1.5 inch incision on the side of my foot where he inserted the screw. Swelling isn't too bad. I know that will take a few months to go away.
I'm really finding a zen in this piecing method. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if/when we decide to retire and move, I may just keep a small machine for general use and concentrate on EPP. I am really digging the portability of it.
Yes, you heard it here.
Speaking of next...
Actually hubby and I have been talking a lot about what's next in our lives. Nothing earth shattering is happening, but it is something that came up when we explored the "what ifs" about my broken foot/losing mobility, and all. Plus, every now and then you need to revisit that discussion as a couple to make sure you both are on the same page.
We absolutely love it here in Washington. If I had my druthers I'd move my entire family up here and live on a huge farm compound in the Skagit Valley. But alas, the land is expensive, my savings aren't that great, and I don't play the lottery. So it's just a dream.
I miss my silver baby!
Isn't this just peaceful?
(If my fiends that knew me during the 1980s-90s heard me say this out loud, they'd think I flipped my noodle).
You heard it here.
I'll check in again when I finish the row. That will give me some accountability. In the meantime enjoy the week and the blessings it brings.
