I went to the doctor this morning and good news !! Apparently there's no torn meniscus in my knee. She believes it's just a sprained ligament that goes around my knee. She recommended I take it easy, keep using the ice pack from time to time, keep wearing the brace, take the anti inflammatory's and it should gradually get better. I did go to Curves after visiting the doctor but only used the machines that didn't involve my legs. Then I went to Fred Meyer grocery shopping but that was an ordeal. By the time I got home, got the groceries in the house and put everything away, I was ready for the ice bag and a couple Tylenol.
I still have all the boxes of stuff sitting around from the sale. But I'm going to take my time putting it away. I want to baby my knee because it's only 11 days until we sail away. I don't care if this stuff is still sitting here when I get home...eventually it will get put away.
Speaking of my car port sale...yesterday I got an email from an AOL journaler (who shall remain nameless), who lives about 60 miles north of me and she said that her and this other AOL journaler (who shall also remain nameless) were considering "sneaking up" on me at my sale. But the one who lives here in my area was busy all weekend , so they didn't make it. Well, this morning I saw the one that lives here in my town...I laughingly told her I had heard of their plan...apparently a camera was going to be involved if they would have made it over to my house. Oh...some of these AOL Journalers are sneaky people. Actually, I wish they could have come over...that would have been fun! Lanny, I think you know both of them...
Well, I hope to start reading journals again. I need to do some heavy duty catching up. And hopefully I can catch up and get somethings down around here too.
I have three brithday's comeing up this weekend...all on the same day, August 12th..my son will be 36, my son-in law will be 52 and Bob's daughter, Hope, in Pasadena will be 41. My son & SIL are local but we need to get a package off to Hope in the next day or so. And Bob's so proud of himself. Hope has been wanting the DVD of "The African Queen" and hasn't been able to find it anywhere. And believe me she knows where to look. Well, we were able to order it at the local Fred Meyer Store and he recieved it in the mail other day. So now it's just a matter of getting it wrapped ,added to a couple goodies we got for her and getting it mailed.
Our town is starting the new "red light" camera enforcement. I don't know about where you live but I have seen as many as 4 or 5 cars going thru a red light at some intersections. Law enforcement will send warning letters to those who go thru red lights for now but starting September 4th, those warning letters will be replaced with tickets for $101 for each offense. I'm glad they are finally cracking down on this very dangerous habit.
I hope everyone had a good weekend.....Linda
