image by Katie ReinhardtI went to the Doc's for a follow up yesterday and I guess I am as good as I am going to be. My finger still "triggers" occasionally, but I am not in pain any longer. My left thumb that was also bothering me is just some arthritis. The Doc told me I could have the joint rebuilt from tendon in my arm if the pain is too much. I think NOT, thank you very much. It just bothers me if I turn my thumb in some funny way or sometimes just aches...I will just deal with it. My friend Jano was commiserating with me about how things just don't fully come back at our age and we just have to get used to them being "almost". Since the House From Hell is mostly packed up (there is just the Christmas stuff for my SIL to go through) I am hoping that I will not overuse my hands anytime soon. My stepson and his girlfriend have decided to buy the house so they will get to do all the painting and carpet removal. This has taken a big weight off Bob's shoulders; now we just have to pray that they keep their jobs and that the interest rates don't go much higher.
Other than that, Bob and I are planning a vacation for early May which I will talk about later. It almost seems boastful to be talking about a trip when so many people are hurting right now so I will keep it under my hat for a bit longer, but I am excited.
We have had a couple of warm days lately ( 65 degrees one day) and a lot of the snow has melted. I was finally able to shovel the front steps and take the Christmas greens down from the door, lol. What snow is left is extremely ugly and harboring a lot of trash etc.; I hate to say it but we probably need some clean snow to make it look pretty again. Somebody slap me for even thinking such a thing, but face it, it is only mid-February and there is a lot of winter left.
Happy Valentines Day everyone...hope you get some pretty flowers and tasty chocolate. That reminds me that I could use some chocolate about now, but alas I don't have any...drat!
