It was an interesting start to the year

The BBQ we went to on July 9th at Tim and Elizabeth’s turned out to be a surprise party for little old me. ANyone will tell you I am pretty impossible to surprise, and the fact that Rob, Elizabeth and Vanessa were able to pull this off is amazing! It was fantastic to walk through the gate and see all my favorite people! I can never thank everyone enough for coming out – it was a fantastic afternoon/evening.

So great start yes? Well not quite…..

We came home and I was dashing around getting Poppy’s things ready for Children’s Island Day Camp when I slipped on something on a tile floor and managed to narrowly avoid doing a full split by bending my right knee in a way that nature never intended. Now, I am clumsy, I can quite literally fall over nothing so over the years I have developed a pretty high pain tolerance, this however was something different. I managed to get to the couch, I managed to get to bed, and I even managed to get to work the next morning, but believe me walking and not knowing if your knee actually works is a pretty awful experience. I am fortunate to have orthopedics in my building and the saw me right away and into a knee brace I went. After a week in the brace I am still hurting and the knee just doesn’t feel right, so tomorrow I will have an MRI – and I am hoping for “just” a severe pain because I do not have time for an ACL or MCL tear and the surgery they would require!

But the project is still on – I took last week off, and Robert stepped in for kitchen duties which meant curry, pizza, curry, pizza……But I am determined to get back on track….
