    Thank you for the thoughtful goodie!! It would feel so good (sigh). I am not in much pain at all. After my last PT appointment, the pain just subsided and I began to sleep much better. I still have some pain at times overnight but I can dismiss it and go back to sleep. I also have some pain if I am standing but I have learned to take more sit rests. I am more unsteady now though and that is a worry. I didn't find the doctor very reassuring yesterday but we are trying a medication and another round of PT. Then it'll be a referral to a surgeon if I'm not better. I hear good things from people (or people who know people) who've had surgery and it has been positive. Just a long time to recover.

    I've been proud of our ability to keep Tony in the house lately. Or at least in the house or on a tether. But, last night the back door must have popped open and Tony never misses an opportunity. He was back in the house after an hour or two and is now happily sleeping his adventure off on our bed.

    Send me some of your house cleaning motivation. Please!!

    I thought of you last night when I learned at the MG Meeting that the rage here now is to enjoy Squash Blossom Soup. I'm not sure how it's made. I'll have to google that but isn't it a great way to reduce the number of squash a garden produces?!!

    I agree - the fact that my body no longer accepts these things is proof that my efforts really have created a new normal. And the sense of relief at getting back to my normally scheduled program the next day - reminds me that I do this not just because I need to but because I like it better.

    I haven't done that yet. But I use semi-permanent color which is at least a few shades lighter than my own hair. That way it only covers the grays, not my natural color, and looks like highlights too. I have a lot more "highlights" than I used to. I've gradually been going lighter and lighter, next step is dark blond. Perhaps by next year I'll be ready to stop altogether and it won't be such a drastic change.

    I tell my daughter that I'm coloring my blond roots, since I haven't found from personal experience that blonds have more fun. She always says "nice try Mom, that's gray hair!"

    My Mom sent me a list of funny quotes, so I've been posting them on my feed. Still have a few left that I can use.
