Recovering slowly but surely
Thursday, June 03, 2010
My knee is doing so much better. I am walking without any pain and that means no more limping! I am getting better at managing the stairs but that progress seems to be slower. My knee has improved to the point that I'm going to start walking again for exercise, although, running still seems a way off. I am working toward staying on track and not stressing so much on the weight I gained during this "ordeal". I keep telling myself "just keep going"......I think I may need to go back and re-read that section in the Spark book about positive self talk!
My mom and I finished clearing out my grandfather's apartment on Monday. That was so hard. Lots of decisions about what to keep and what to let go. There were so many memories in there and I still miss him so much.
We have made a decision on a house in North Carolina and are in the process of negotiating an offer and ironing out details. It has been hard on the family living so far apart but there is light at the end of the tunnel. We are hoping for a move in date of 7/15 and we will all be together again for good! I am so excited. A cross country move can be scary and stressful but, more than anything, I am so grateful for a fresh start. I can hardly wait.
