Today was all about me!

This morning I began my day with the appointment for my knee. I really liked the doctor...she's as sassy as my new primary doctor. She definitely made my knee hurt like crazy, but tonight it is not quite so angry. The good news is the arthritis is closer to mild than I thought and the knee is structurally okay. The sorest areas and problems I identified for her are IT-Band and Hamstring. We agreed to begin by trying exercises for those and the meniscus as there may be some irritation/damage there originally (2 years ago) for a month. If I don't notice a difference I can call in and request physical therapy. If pain worsens I am to call and make a follow-up appointment. She was going to look into a topical anti-inflammatory, but she wants to coordinate that with the other doctor since I've been banned from ibuprofen type things. She was happy to hear that I have Deep Blue (doTerra) and said to step up the usage of that on the muscles. I think since i also have some of the Deep Blue pills for daily use I will start those too as they should help with the inflammation.
I was home for a couple of hours and got most of the next client plan drafted, but it was time to head to the salon for my hair appointment. I was scheduled for just a root touch-up, but Maegann and I had been texting about trying some highlights as she had time. She first stripped some of my hair blonde and then we toned it with a gold-blonde and red. I really like it.
Once home I raced to feed Isaac and take him to his basketball game. It's tourney weekend and they have a guaranteed two games and the second one is tomorrow morning. They lost tonight, but he said it's all good. He headed over to the football game at the high school afterwards. Homecoming weekend for them. They won and we heard the celebration as we can hear the band, the cannon and announcers as the stadium is only 1 1/2 blocks away.
Tomorrow Tim will be home after all (he had planned to do some fencing with Wendell) and my plan is to finish up at least one more client plan, clean up a couple desk trays that have seen me just piling things into them all week. I also want to find time to work on my Bible study lessons and then I'm going to break into one of these puzzles that arrived yesterday.
