Sigh. The printed out parking garage maps sit on my keys. I sit in the living room. I was determined to meet up with my Spark buds; something we planned back in April. My hips had other plans. I can walk through the house in discomfort... Read more

Pt yesterday was therapeutic for the therapist! She got to watch me go through my paces on my own as I'm a quick learner. Small movements, baby steps. Then she said, try this. Yep, I can do that. And like everything else I do, I went big.... Read more

Yikes. As I told MTN-KITTEN I feel like a tire worn down to threads that suddenly gets a wheel alignment. I'm not sure how my worn joints are going to adjust to working a bit off their old center. My knee hurts as do my hips and my old "stup... Read more
