Thoughts as 2015 Ends
Here we are at the end of another year. And what a year it has been for me. Remember last February 18th? That was the day I slipped and fell on the ice as I was leaving work, thus severing the quadricep muscle in my left leg. That little "slip" put me out of commission for twelve weeks.
I couldn't walk. I was totally dependent on Bill to just exist. If it wasn't for Bill I would have been placed in a rehab facility. Thank goodness for Bill!
I'm walking again, not quite the same as I was before but I.AM.WALKING for which I am totally grateful.
It seems as if each year brings on new health challenges for me. I hope I get a pass this new year. I'm ready to coast for a few years. Enjoy what time I have left (there he goes with the "I'm dying" theme again).
I am working at the hotel tonight but I do have tomorrow off which I am looking forward too. Again, like the Christmas holiday, the first time in years I've had off for New Year's and I plan to totally enjoy my day off.
Yesterday as Bill and I were going out for our daily ride, we encountered our neighbor (and fellow former Downingtown resident) Jane J. She just had the interior of her house repainted and insisted that we come up and see the finished product. You all know me, I always like house tours so that will be my activity tomorrow.
I don't have anything else planned. I don't "do" football games anymore. I see enough TV commercials already with the few TV shows I watch.
I plan to play more online Scrabble, catch up on my e-mail and will definitely take in a movie at the Tipton Cinema tomorrow night. And of course Bill and I will go out for our Daily Drive. We always get out of the house at least once a day.
For any of you going out this New Year's Eve, drive safely and if you're indulging (drinking), make sure you have a designated driver!
Happy New Year!
