Wow! We have a gorgeous 4th of July here today. 75 and sunny with a little breeze ... heading to 80. The little family walked up to our tiny City parade and family fun booths. SO sweet. They were both so excited this morning ... Mr. 3.5 got up at 5am! Woke his brother up about 7am. Needless to say they each took a 3 hour nap. Poor Mom and Dad .... none!
Today I have had some quiet alone time (outside on our Community patio) to think. Surgery is Thursday around noon (send positive vibes to the surgeon and staff) and I will be losing some independence for a week or two. This is the hardest part about growing older. Losing little bits of strength, stamina, energy.
I hope I can follow in the steps of my favorite blogger, The Misadventures of Widowhood, and work on regaining strength and balance. With two knees that aren't painful with every step, I will have no excuses. She has noticed a great difference in six months.
I am so thankful for a live-in support system ... and the best darned nursing staff ever!
