I'm updating! Scary, I know!
While some may call today Halloween, most everyone in my family calls it 'Two Days Before Kelly's Birthday". Which it is! I'm sure the festivities started last night and will continue well into the next two weeks until our collective family takes a breath...then ramps up for Diane's birthday (Nov 27).
I'm still on leave from work :-( It's weird, I'm sad, I miss everyone. I'm not used to being off work without being on vacation..and I'm definitely NOT on vacation so I guess I'm in limbo? Whatev.
Now that I'm feeling somewhat better post surgery (I can now sleep all thru the night HELL YEAH!!) I've tasked myself with unpacking. Still have lots moving boxes littering my living space and now that I'm more mobile the moving boxes must go. My space is limited so I'm getting extra creative in figuring out where to put everything..a far cry from what my buddy Andrew Hyde is experiencing!
Once everything's unpacked I'll take pix of what I no longer need/want and post them on my blog so keep an eye out if you're interested! My goal at being totally unpacked is Thanksgiving.
I've also started a running To-Do list of things I've been meaning to do forever but haven't. Things like :
* Input all my paper scraps of addresses & info into Address Book
* Update / Revise my Contacts into said Address Book
* I owe Abby & Jeanine long-overdue update emails
* Sort thru two huge bankers boxes of pix in the hopes of scanning them someday (need a scanner first, tho!)
* Meet with a financial planner to strategize on the best allocations for my 401(k)'s
* Fine-tune budget
....you know...stuff like that!
Started Physical Therapy last Friday. A far cry from what I expected but so far so good. I'll be going 2x week for the next month and then they'll re-evaluate to see where I am. I've made it this far without having to break into the Vicodin (no, you can't have my leftovers, they're already spoken for!) and am hoping that trend continues. Not as much as painful as it's unstable...it's like my knee has a mind of it's own and isn't sure where it wants to go. Weird sensation, at least for me.
Finally, I'm thrilled that this is the FIRST Halloween I've experienced in CO that hasn't seen a snowfall by now. So. Happy.
Snow will be here soon enough (boo!) and I'm thankful to be enjoying the remaining snow-free days of Fall.
