Going to the Green Mountain State!

Monday, October 26, 2009

Well...I decided today that I am going to head for Vt after work on Friday. I definitely feel the need to get away and wouldn't want to be anywhere else than with my best friend, Kevin. My next door neighbors are going to feed my cats and pill one of them. There is nothing to stop me from going. I will have the car checked out sometime this week but I am sure it is OK. This has lifted my mood a lot. Last weekend was so tough....this weekend will be much better. Kev and I have plans for going to the movies already. It has been so long since I have been to a movie. I also have plans to go to Vt whichever holiday I don't have to work this year. I hope I get to go for Christmas as that will be the hard one for me. Thanksgiving won't be as tough.

It was so nice when I got home from work today that I went for a walk. It was gorgeous but by the time I was half through, my knee was protesting. I limped home and took something for pain. Exercising won't be easy for me. Part of me doesn't want to take pain pills in order to exercise. But I may end up doing that since walking and easy exercise won't re-injure the knee. I had a steroid injection into my knee a month or so ago and after that my knee felt awesome...however the effect only lasted for 2 weeks. They don't want to do any more as I need to be steroid free for 6-8 months before surgery. I plan to have my medial and lateral meniscus fixed in the spring and will be out of work for a couple of weeks. I would love to go to Vt for recovery time but it is my right knee and driving will be an issue. If Kev hasn't used vacation time, he will come down here and we can do beach day trips etc and lots of movies.

    I am so glad you have a BFF and hope you enjoy a lovely, relaxing weekend with him. As for the knee ... hmm, that's a tough one. Using the knee hurts, but exercising helps los weight, and every pound gone is 4 lbs. less pressure on the joints. So I do to my ability, whatever that is. I'm sorry about the pain. I know that pain, and it is not fun!

    The Green Mountains sounds like a WONDERFUL Rx for you right now...go, slow down, savor, lie back and allow Kevin to take over...take care of yourself...yes!
