Because my knee was hurting quite a bit, I did not go to work today. I am grateful to have ladies who are willing to substitute for me. I had left a message with my orthopedist about the PT issues. This afternoon, I got a call from the supervisor of the PT group. He assured me that HE would be working with me today & get things corrected. I actually really enjoyed PT today. Admittedly the work more difficult & there is more of it. My muscles were screaming & quivery, but the knees did NOT. I am so grateful. NOW I can get this done & be happy with the results. I also talked to the supervisor about my concerns over the 3 pound weight gain that I had seen of the past 2 weeks. He said that I should have expected that because of all the strength exercises that I am doing. Hopefully when I weigh in tomorrow, I will see a loss. I AM SO HOPING!!! Tomorrow will be busy. I have to teach 3 hours of classes in the morning and then deep water at the outdoor pool tomorrow night, assuming they allow it. They closed the pool early today because the water was too cold. My family & I watched AGT together tonight. The results show. The 1st 6 people of the 12 finalists went through tonight. For the most part I was happy with the choices. We'll see what next week brings. My nephew David came by tonight (just a short while ago) and borrowed my spare tire. A friend of his broke down with a flat & they will return my spare tomorrow after they get a new tire. I trust my nephew so I am sure all will be well. My tires are in great shape & I am trusting that I will not find any nails tomorrow. We got our final letter of approval for the Homeschooling of the grandchildren. I am grateful that we have no more fighting on that end. My calories are really low. Just above 1200. That's very low for me. I had to eat some peanut butter to get it up there. Here's hoping that you all have a good night. I am off to bed. I've been crocheting like a mad-woman. I am LOVING how it is coming together. I'll post a picture when I am done. Sweet dreams. Thanks for being there for me. I appreciate your support.
