The Happy Gene

I have long said that I think I was born with ‘the happy gene’, and it seems I am correct. Yay, me. πŸ™‚

The Happy Gene

I am still doing much better pain-wise, and the freezing cold weekend is moderating. It was -14 below Sunday at 5am. Brrrrr. Supposed to be in the 50’s tomorrow. I love New England. These are Fahrenheit, not Celsius, btw.

My homemaker has not turned up today. I texted, but no reply. I know it’s a holiday, but she told me Friday she would be working today. Poor homemakers, they get crap pay and unpaid sick/vacation time, and have to work most holidays. Good old America. They also have to pay for their own gas to get from job to job and to do the shopping, etc., for the clients.

After being mostly miserable recently, I woke up today feeling much better. I can even hobble around with my cane instead of having to use the walker. Don’t know what happened, but didn’t have a clue what made me worse in the first place. But it was not a fun couple of weeks. Only a month to go til surgery, too. Kind of looking forward to physical therapy after, cause I’m hoping the therapists can help figure out how to regain some muscle in the rest of me, not just work on the knee. I have to be cautious, because I lot of things I’ve tried have just caused more long-lasting pain. Not a good thing.

Snowed again, but no pictures, too much pain. So glad to be better again. teawithlemonssmall.jpg

Don’t know what went wrong, but I have been in pain since Saturday. I was doing so well, too. Very tired, also. Fuzzy brain. Not happy. It’s a beautiful day, though. Not as warm as yesterday, but bright and clear. Trees look like they are ready to pop buds. It’s barely February, trees. Climate change is real, people. Kind of scary, really, because the warmer it gets, the more bugs will be moving north from southerly parts of the continent. This can’t be good.

Watching another weird show on Netflix. Occupied. It’s Norwegian. Thank goodness for subtitles. I love Netflix. I hardly ever watch regular tv, unless it’s pbs or sometimes the news and weather. I am tired. Need to go lie down now.
