I went to visit my Orthopedist today, and all my exercising at home has been very successful. He told me I was 90% improved from my last visit with him. I told him I walk Izzy with my left hand, and several times she has jerked me into breaking up the frozen shoulder fluids. He got a kick out of my "dog therapy." I asked if I could work with some hand weights, and he told me to do whatever I wanted. I only need to return if I am in pain. He told me it still may take several more months before I am completely healed.
To remind you, so you don't have to reference back as to why I have a frozen left shoulder, I had a "slip and fall" at one of the local casinos last July. My left shoulder took the brunt of it. So hopefully, before we move back to Cali, we can settle this claim...
This weekend, my Mom, sister, and girlfriend come for our quarterly Digital Scrap Booking weekend. Some of us do Digital Scrap Booking, and others just have fun on our lap tops and we all take a TON of pictures. We have a full weekend planned, so stay tuned for a full report...we have a lot planned. Really looking forward to a fun weekend!
We have decided we are taking 5 days and going house hunting in Cali the first week in April. My husband has agreed not to put the house up for sale until we return. We should know by then how realistic our relocation plans look... Either the houses are selling like hot cakes, or all the Realtors are putting in multiple bids on various houses for each buyer, only to withdraw the ones the buyer does not want. No WONDER it is so difficult to find a house to buy!!
Meanwhile, I am packing up a storm, and being totally overwhelmed with the amount of CRAP I have accumulated!! I should hang my head in shame!! I need one of my "neat nick", ruthlessly simplistic, girlfriends to come and help me eliminate stuff. I am loosing my perspective...H-E-L-P!!
Two of my husband's sons, their wives, another couple, and us went to see Dennis De Young, formerly the lead singer and keyboardist of the band STYX. He was at the New Orleans Casino with his new band. Dennis is now 63 years young and you would not believe how zippy and animated on stage he is. His wife of 40 years, who was very attractive and hip looking, works with him as a back up singer. He must do Yoga! His voice sounds as good as it did back in the 70's and 80's!! Awesome evening!!
He did many of his big hits, including, Babe, Too Much Time On My Hands, Desert Moon, Lady, Come Sail Away, Don't Let It End, The Best of Times, Mr. Roboto, and Madam Blue. I have to admit, I had to stuff Kleenex chunks in my ears to prevent deafness from the LOUD music....but it was really wonderful and fun!!
