This morning I woke up feeling full of energy and with so little pain in my knee...I embarked on some hefty chores. First I sanitized the doorknobs and light switches and counters and cabinets. Our son-in-law has a nasty bug and none of us want it. I unloaded the dishwasher. I changed the light bulb in the garage opener which I would not have been able to do with the knee pain. (ladder climbing) I vacuumed the pool and it was extra time consuming because it had not been done for almost 2 weeks. I won't go into details...but it was gross. I loaded up some old wood and put it in a bag to take out to the curb. I edged the lawn and re mowed some areas. (Our son mowed on Tuesday but I told him not to edge that day) I power washed the front of our house on the porch area because it has been bugging me for along time. I filled some old paint cans up with litter that have piled up in the garage. Hope to get rid of those tomorrow. I washed the sheets and pillow cases and put them on the bed. Which by the way....really irks me because I almost always put the short side on wrong first and then have to redo it...why can't they be marked somewhere. I guess I should be the one to do that. And why are sheets and pillow cases so EXPENSIVE and full of wrinkles! I showered and got ready to pick the kids up at 3 ...but Brian was feeling better so he went to get them. It is now 3 pm and I am wondering if I might sneak in some knitting or something that requites sitting for a while until I make supper. I may start recording what I do everyday...so I won't feel like I don't do anything...just because I don't go to a job that pays money.....

Hip Hip Hooray! My knee is getting better. After 5 weeks. post opt knee surgery I finally awoke with a very minimal amount of pain. Yes indeed...I am on the mend! But...I have been annoyed with another problem that I haven't talked about very much and that is cataracts. I knew I had them for the past few years...but for the past several months I have not been able to see things close up or at a distance very clearly. I had a Dr. appointment today and he said that the cataracts have gotten bad enough to have the surgery to correct my eyes. He said that with this surgery...I will be able to see without contacts and glasses. This will be like a miracle for me. I have worn glasses since I was in the 4th grade. My vision is so bad, I am legally blind without the corrections that contacts and glasses can give me. I am getting pretty excited about this......maybe I will have more upbeat things to talk about for awhile now....;)
PS If I have mispellings it is because I can't see well...because of eye dialations form the appointment
