No Crutch, No Cane — Life is Great!

Today I went to work with No Crutches and No Cane.  Hurray!!!!!  I may be slow and careful walking; but I can even walk up and down the stairs with no pain.

It’s really bad when as an adult one needs to relearn how to walk.  After the first knee injury a couple years ago, I had to relearn how to stand.

  • Sit on the edge of a chair
  • Lean Forward
  • Push up with your knees.  Use a crutch or armrest or something if needed.
  • When you don’t stand up because of a fear of pain, repeat “stand up, you can do this”

Well this time, it was not nearly as bad.  Fear was the biggest problem.  Luckily I had the strength to overcome my fear.  So today I celebrate the simple task of walking and taking the stairs.   Its great to be able to walk.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
