The temps dropped down into the 50's last night! For the first time in months, I had to close the windows because it was cold out!
My knee is now 6 weeks postop, xrays are good, ortho is happy with my range of motion. The swelling in that foot is down enough that I can wear a regular shoe.
Manda, Ben and Amary are in the San Juan Islands off the coast of WA. They are staying in a B&B and going on a whale watch. Steph and Dan are in Bend and Sisters, OR. Ralph is in DC for a reunion of his Navy/SeaBee's battalion. Heather worked, and I shopped for clothes!
Yesterday was my nephew Michael's 30th birthday! Next week Eddie will be 11, and Ralph will have a birthday. Tomorrow is my friend Pat's birthday. Last week was my niece Sharon's birthday, my friend Roseanne's, and my friend Barbara's. Lots of September birthdays!
We're getting back into the routine at school. I'm happy that this will be my last year of working fulltime. I'm ready to start doing things on my schedule, not the district's. I like what I do, but the schedule is not a bit flexible. I want to be able to travel in the spring and fall, not just in the summer. I want to not have to worry about going to work (and coming home) in the snow. And I'm so tired of getting up at 6.30 AM, especially when it's dark out. So it's time to fold 'em and get out.
And now the laundry is calling me!
