Meanwhile, my third cortisone shot seems to have taken. I am aggressively icing my feet every night (that is a party!), wearing my brace and keeping the inserts in my shoes. For the first time in a LONG time, this Friday morning after Thursday night basketball I was able to get out of bed and walk across the room without an electric scooter. (The mornings are the worst - the Achilles tendon is inflamed because of bone spurs in my heels and the first stretch of the day is a killer.) I am on vacation this week so I can wear real comfy walking shoes and maybe I can finally put this all behind me. Or under me...

Just halfway through August and it is already the wettest August on record. I may actually mow the yard now. The funny thing is, after it rains, there are about a dozen little frogs in the pool (I do rescue them). But when it is hot and dry out, they don't get in. You would think it would be the opposite way.
I ran the entire safety and security part of the annual picnic at work this. Aside from some communication issues with the City, all went extremely well. I was so pleased. And relieved!
I am on vacation this coming week. Not sure how much of a vacation it's going to be: Ashleigh goes to college on Wednesday and Lucie gets rotator cuff surgery on Thursday. Maybe I will get called in...
