Whatnot – 11/10/21

The neighborhood. As you can see from this photo, it’s pretty glorious right now, weather wise. Blue skies, cool mornings and sunny afternoons. I do not  mind the long evenings AT ALL. I feel as if I have so much time to just chill (read, stare at a wall, hang with the pup, etc.).

Today, I am using my lunch hour for my first physical therapy appointment. I have never done physical therapy before but they sent me an app and I have to tell you, given how limited I’ve been with my knee, these exercises alarm me a little. Perhaps they will adjust the routine once they evaluate my situation. The doc doesn’t think I need surgery as the Fibular Collateral Ligament which tore off, has reattached itself but not in a perfect way. So I am due for an MRI and physical therapy for now and I do have to wear the annoying brace they gave me which keeps falling off. All, small things compared to what others are going through.

My daughter and her roommates, plural, as she will have three for next year put their deposits down on a very nice four bedroom apartment, located right across the street from the campus and the performing arts center where she will be spending most of her time. She will have a kitchen so no more dining hall food shortages. Yay!!

My son booked his flight for his week home this Christmas and I booked my daughter’s flight as well. Her flight was very challenging! Only two really that worked. The price kept going up as I was looking so I pulled the trigger and purchased. It’s hard when the only airport close to her is a small one.

I did not finish Dune this past weekend but I must, MUST finish today so I can read my book club’s pick. I am really loving it but it cannot be read with other books. It demands your full attention.

Tomorrow is Veterans Day and a holiday for my campus so I am off. No plans. Fine by me. Thank you to all who have served!

Have a great rest of the week!

  1. I have mixed feelings about PT. Keep in mind that if it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Slow is best. Be your own advocate. Our weather is similar to yours. Cool mornings with sun, then warm afternoons. And glorious sun rises and sunsets.

  2. What a beautiful blue sky! Ours has been pretty cloudy with lots of rain, so I haven’t been able to get out and walk very much. We got over 10 inches of rain last month!

    I hope your PT session goes well. I’ve never gone, but my husband went for many months after his shoulder replacement surgery. He said it was uncomfortable, but he’s so glad he went. His range of motion wouldn’t be near what it is now, had he skipped the PT.

    I’ll bet your daughter is super excited about getting an apartment. Will they move in at the semester break or at the end of their first year? I’m glad she and your son will be home with you for Christmas. Our Thanksgiving will be a large gathering of family (a dozen in all), but Christmas will be small (just the three of us). I actually enjoy quiet holidays so I’m glad we’re not having two large gatherings!

    Enjoy your day off tomorrow!

  3. How wonderful that both kids will be home this Christmas and that your daughter’s living for next year is sorted. Yay for kitchens so they don’t have to rely on the dining halls.

    I have done a bunch of physical therapy (mostly for frozen shoulder, which is no joke) and have actually enjoyed it.

  4. Love the sky photo – picture perfect. Glad you got some answers about your knee. It seems PT is an automatic thing these days; hope it helps. Great news about the apartment for next year – hope that works out and finally, you must be really looking forward to Christmas these year and a full house once again.

  5. It’s exciting your kids will be there for Christmas. Good luck with your knee … when is the MRI? Have a peaceful & Happy Thanksgiving week. Not sure I will be on the blog that week as things will be busy!
