Well, I'm going through Zumba withdrawal, lol! Thank goodness my partner is doing well. First shower & bandage removal this morning, and the incision looks really good. There's a very impressive blood pool under the skin below the incision that looks like a really wild tattoo, ha ha.

I saw my physical therapist yesterday, and she was able to help relieve some of MY pain. I've done a LOT of physical stuff these past few days. The morning after surgery, my partner fell on the bathroom floor between the toilet and tub, luckily not hitting the incision. I found out I cannot dead lift someone who weighs more than me, though my automatic response was to try. Silly me! Of course, my partner was able to log-roll to hands and knees & carefully get up from there.

I ran to the gym today to get some beans that one of my Zumba friends cooked to help my partner heal. I took her some fresh pear muffins & double chocolate zucchini bread that I'd baked so she could share them with her husband.

I could have gone to Zumba, but there was a substitute that I just really don't like (rare for me). She changed into a boot-camp instructor instead of a joyous Zumba instructor, so after giving her 5 chances, I decided not to go when she's teaching.

I'll be going to both Pilates and Zumba tomorrow if all goes well, and I should feel a lot better after that.

I've been cooking good food as well as baking healthy goodies. Chicken noodle soup with whole wheat noodles, farmer's casserole, ground turkey breast burgers, whole wheat honey flax bread, etc.

I picked up an iced venti nonfat latte on the way home, so I'm ready to get the million things done that need doing today, before my partner's daughter gets here. Clean sheets on bed in spare room, check. Clean towels for her, check. Vacuuming, check. Kitchen clean, sort of. ;)

See you all later!

Hello everyone, its been a while since I've stopped by. Things have been kind of crazy, but I'm hanging on by the skin of my teeth. That's a strange old saying....

We're having a bit of a wind event here, and I'm loving the energy of it, my cat, Beau, doesn't quite know what to make of it. Leaves go flying by out on the deck, & I have some windows open to let the wind blow through the house. It's been quite hot here, so we've had a lot of air conditioning going on. It's still pretty warm, but the fresh air feels good. I had to go out and water all the plants; the warm wind is drying them out.

Ah, had to take a little beauty break before coming back to my crazy life. My partner has been in a lot of pain, and is to the point where walking is sometimes difficult, as well as lifting one leg. Finally, surgery (lumbar laminotomy) is scheduled for the end of this month. Relief is in sight; relief from a grumpy work-from-home partner, from seeing the person I love in constant pain, depressed, and angry at most everything.

I've been working out as often as I can, Zumba and Pilates several times a week, sometimes one right after the other. It makes me feel so good, and I'm staying strong, heck, getting stronger! That's good, since my right knee is in reallllly bad shape. I wear a knee brace to work out, and do maybe and hour of stretches and rolling a day, just to keep things working right. As soon as my partner heals up, I'll be looking forward to getting the knee replacement surgery I've been needing. I hope this one goes as well as the left knee did!

As soon as my partner's surgery was scheduled, I called my orthopedic surgeon to schedule and appointment. I couldn't get in until October 31! I called and left a message for her physicians' assistant, asking if maybe I could be penciled in Dr. S's surgery schedule before seeing her, since she is usually scheduled way out. Last year I saw her in December, and had surgery in February of this year.

I've been baking up a storm, using fresh fruits in all sorts of good stuff. I also found a wonderful recipe for no-bake home made healthy granola bars (using my own home made coconut hazelnut blueberry granola). I love them too much! I made a second batch of them, using tropical fruits and little chunks of dried strips of coconut from Trader Joe's. I gave a lot away, but I ate so many that my jaws were sore. :) I'm lucky I only gained a little weight. Sigh.

I'm doing a massive bunch of paperwork, and discovered that I've made several subtraction mistakes in my checkbook over the last few years. As in, over $600 in my favor! Bonus! Time to get myself some new exercise shorts, and maybe a new pair of Zumba shoes.

That reminds me! One of my Zumba instructors is going to start teaching an Aqua Zumba class at my favorite gym, Sept. 22 at 6 pm. I am SO going to be there! It sounds perfect for my body. I'd better get up and get moving.

I hope you're all doing well. I'm so sorry I haven't been keeping track of my buddies here, or meeting new ones. I miss you.
