March Updates

1. Tentative surgery date of march 30th.  Come on already!!  I need me a new hip, like, five months ago.

2.  Still not too bored, which is impressive as I have been off work since September.  I've learned just how much t.v. I can watch (a lot).  Fortunately I've recently challenged myself on a new website I've joined to read 30 books this year.  Which simultaneously sounds like a lot and not very much.

3.  Speaking of joining new websites, I've joined Pinterest (OMG, so addictive!!), twitter (less addictive), and Goodreads (take over my life why don't you?).  Social media much??

4.  I shaved my damn legs for the first time in MONTHS.  I don't really care, but it was pissing me off because I couldn't.  I got a wicked shower seat for my birthday that makes me a happier, and cleaner, person.

5.  Oh yeah, Dom broke his RIGHT hand a month ago, so we only have three good legs and three good arms between us.  And, I'm labelling my arms as "good" as I can technically use them: unlike my right leg and Dom's right hand.  It's been a real fun month.  We are a pathetic couple right now.  He had to travel by plane for surgery and everything.  With me as an escort. Yeah.

6.  We've had the best winter in a few years up here in Labrador.  And a good winter is here is lots of fluffy snow and blinding sun.  Except I rarely leave the house, never mind snowshoeing or ski-dooing.  And, with Dom's hand, the relentless snow has really made us rely on family and friends to constantly shovel us out.

What's new with you folks?  I'm a little out of the loop!

    2. Also, don't be surprised to receive an email or two after my surgery! I may needs some fellow hipster support :D

  2. Glad the surgery is scheduled! And so happy you had a real winter (other than the getting other people to shovel snow bit!)!! We've had such a bizarre "winter" here; it's been much more like spring, really. I miss the snow!!

    Look for me on Goodreads if you like! I'm there under my name. Would love you as a friend! And happy reading!

    :) L

    1. I'm loving the real winter, though would much prefer to love it on the outside :) Still, much better than rain, freezing temps, ice, repeat.

      I looked for you on Goodreads, with no luck??

    2. K, now I'm commenting double on everyone as blogger is allowing me, but not on your own blogs....

      Laurie, I saw that you have stopped anti-inflammatories! You are my new hero! I also found that the switch from liquid mtx to pills was much easier. I still get some nausea, but it's nowhere near the same!

  3. Hey Pony, good to hear from you! Woop woop, new hip soon and you'll be back in the great outdoors, probably missed the snow by then though! We have hardly had any this year in total contrast to the whiteout of the last two winters. Good luck for the 30th, keep us updated!!

    1. Squirrel! Good to hear from you, too! I tried commenting on your blog, but my computer is soooo fussy for some reason. Anyway, saw you have a new girlfriend, congrats! Hope all is going well in that department. I understand the not wanting to tell people early in a relationship, but it eventually feels good to get it out there.
