The Dreaded Shot
Monday, April 23, 2012      6 comments

Thank you all for your patience with me over the past 4-1/2 months, about my knee. I got my gel shot this morning. I hate needles, and it was into my knee, so I was dreading it. Besides that, it's a gel, not a liquid, so I was fearful. I... Read more

Ok, so the ugly sweater is finished. I don't like wearing yellow - it's fine on others, but I don't like it on me. That begs the question of WHY DID I BUY SOME yellow yarn?!! I don't have an answer for that. I'm on to crocheting Amigu... Read more

We did it! We traded in the convertible and brought home a Mazda3 for our running-around car. Little Blue has until the end of the month when her state inspection runs out. My knee is healing, I think. I say "I think" because while I can... Read more

Way back when, we bought a 1990 Grand Am - she had to be named Little Blue - no other name would do. Blue had 7 miles on her when we got her, and we put 4 of those miles on test driving, so yeah, she was brand new. Blue had seen us to and ... Read more

I went back to the dr today to have the stitches removed. He showed me pictures he took of the inside of my knee - interesting. I found out that arthritis looks like you took a cotton ball and pulled and pulled it out until it was a fringe. I... Read more
