I climbed the stairs at the library the other. On purpose. Physical therapy is over and everything seems to be working fine. I can get up or down without using the arms of a chair. I'm no longer afraid to sit in the middle seat of a sofa. Life is good!
Now to get packing. I treated myself with a one way first class ticket (for knee protection) so I get two free checked bags. I didn't check a bag last time so I'm searching for affordable (disposable?) large bags so I can take a few items back. A couple of my favorite cookbooks. Some kitchen doo dads. Old photos so I can scan and save (never did get around to doing it here). The flight is nonstop so I'm hoping there will be no trouble.
My room is a MESS ... sort of an organized mess ... but many tax papers, medical summaries and recently purchased back up drive and DVD reader. Much of it needs to come to Maui as well.
Followed by a couple of important decisions. Medical insurance in Maui? Will it cover pre-existing conditions ... if I would get any complications or flare ups? Or should I keep my Oregon insurance as I rarely get sick enough to see a Dr. Should I file Hawaii taxes? It will save me $$$$ on property taxes ... will it affect where I vote? Oh, the questions I have!!
