        you see???

        how are you feeling today??  :D  You up to disco-ing???  That's another reason to clear out the garage/barn.  Get your disco dance freed up.

          My Doctor's appointment is in the morning. I am trying my best to not do a pain pill today. I'm improving but I felt better yesterday.

              that I have to continue doing the pills so I guess a basement party tonight!

              I am doing great. Stitches out, still lots of bruises and swelling but he wants me walking. I feel so strange with one leg shaved and not the other. I asked about mowing the yard on a riding lawnmower, the farmers market on Sat and the flea market Sunday? He said YES. I return to work on Tuesday and have that Friday off. Doctor told me when I left his office to go walking. I HATE HATE the shopping malls and haven't been to one in probably two years so that's where I went! JCrew, Banana Repubic, Brook Brothers, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, etc. I am worn out but came home with two khakis, belt, hat, gloves, miner's head lamp (not for basement parties but to clean the dog pen), linens and candles. I think I did good and that should hold me for a few more years!!

              •  OK wait, the riding lawnmower got a green light? (2+ / 0-)

                Here's the thing ... my knees ache after i come in from mowing on the riding mower.  Granted, i'm out in the field for several hours with them bent in one position, and you may have a more speedy task to tackle.  Point being, i'm dubious about a riding mower being ok on your fresh knee.  Walking i can see cause it's movement and weight distribution and so on.  But maybe check again about being buckled up in a fixed position for a while?

                I know.  But i worry. :)

                •  I totally agree (2+ / 0-)

                  When I get off the rider, I have a hard time standing straight up and walking for the first minute. He said to kick my leg out to the sides ever so often and straighten it and to take breaks and not mow it in one sitting. It normally takes me close to two hours to do it all. I am not going to be able to push mow the dog pen and around things though. This guy is pushing me to use my leg but very carefully. He says move it or lose it. If I have any problems, he is going to send me to physical therapy. I am thrilled that he said it was okay to go to the flea market!
                  It's final! Tomorrow night is not only our first frost but our first freeze, down to 28 degrees. I have to concentrate on plants instead of mowing.
