It's a good day to have a good day!

So little to do, so much time!  So far I have cleaned out my drawers and some of Jon's.  I applied my "if I haven't worn it in 6 months, it's gone." ...Sorry Jon that rule worked on your behalf as well.  I don't know what I plan to do next.  It's hard wanting to do things and being from the waist down.  Jon's starting to learn to leave things lower in the fridge for me...except for the Easter candy. 

We got a new deck built this week.  Our old deck was not very handicapped friendly and the steps did not support me getting in and out of the house.  With your thoughtful donations we were able to make this happen.  Our next project are new sidewalks so my walker and wheel chair can fit.  Right now I am half in the grass, half on the sidewalk.  It will be nice to sit out on the back deck and enjoy the sunshine soon.

I'd like to give a huge thank you to everyone involved with the pancake breakfast.  Seeing all the volunteers working is amazing.  Thank you for giving up your time and energy to help bring a smile to my face.  Growing up I couldn't wait to get out of this town and move on from it and 27 years later I am here, surrounded by people who are so caring.  I'm glad to be from a small town that shows the amount of support and love we all share.  Not only towards myself, but towards others in need.  I hope you all know how much that means to my family and I.  Thank you J.J.'s & Courtyard for making this benefit possible.  Thank you to all the volunteers that helped to sell tickets & baskets.  And thank you to everyone who didn't eat all the cookies so they could come home with me =) .

Physical Therapy has been going okay.  I currently am  having right leg, hip & back pain.  We are working hard to try to get these worked out.  It's had to believe how 1 week of being sick has set me back.  I wouldn't say we are back at the beginning but it's frustrating for me because I was getting farther than I have been then its back to being barely able to walk with my walker.  I keep telling myself "One day at a time!"

Thank you for being so patient as I update this blog.  I feel like my life is rather boring right now...I do the same thing everyday.  I may use this time and learn how to aunt has been on me for months now.  She can get my first bad batch!

Thank you for the continued prayers, love and support!
