At least it worked

My knee was pretty swollen on Friday, after the aspiration. But I woke up Saturday morning much more able to move. Now the low back is more of an issue than the knee.

My plan is to not bend the knee for more than it takes to walk up the stairs until I get an MRI done. At the time I ate that fateful (tasty tasty) dinner, I could do pretty much anything knee-wise.

It was a catching up weekend. Catching up on laundry, dishes (oh, the dishes), grocery shopping, house cleaning, toy removing, church stuff (including writing a sermon and finishing off the membership wall pictures) and keeping our children from killing each other. Yes, they’re at that phase of brotherhood. The catching up might have been easier if my husband hadn’t had to work a full 8 hour day on Saturday. But now we’re caught up. And we we to our church picnic and had a blast today, and I took a nap, and had a nice walk so I’m feeling cheerful. And I’m mostly all caught up!

Tomorrow is “Library Pizza night” – one of my favorite nights! It’s also farm share day, so wish me luck finding room in our fridge for the abundance. (NOTE: I have long thought of buying a new, larger fridge. However, doing so would require altering a load-bearing wall and completely refinishing the pantry. For SOME reason I haven’t gotten around to it yet.)

  1. I would just like to mention that there is plenty of room down stairs for another refrigerator. We love having two refrigerators — even though there are only 2 of us.

    Glad you had a good weekend.



  2. Glad knee is better. Hope back is soon. Refrig in basement would be an idea, especially for staples, drinks and farm share. That way you could get a new refrig that fits for pantry. Good luck. Miss you all. Hugs and love.
