It has been a month since my knee surgery! Here are a few things that happened in that month:
-I got my full leg brace off two days ago. I can now freely bend my knee.
-I drove this morning! I wasn't allowed to drive for the month with the brace. I missed it.
-I went to my first rehab/therapy appointment this morning. My knee is feeling better after the electric shock treatment (ok...it probably isn't called this but I'm not sure what it is called).
-I put on three pounds. Oops. It turns out staying at home every day all day isn't a great thing for the weight.
-I purchased a huge lot of clothing just over a month ago. I got about 600 pieces or so from an ebay seller that was moving overseas.
-I have listed all but 150 pieces from that inventory. The ones left are all vintage pieces from the 1940's - 1970's. I will be out of my comfort zone on those!
-For someone who couldn't really walk too well, my sales have been pretty good!
-The hubby & I have been reading the book of Job. I picked this book before my surgery knowing that Job had it a lot worse than me! Job's faith is amazing. He loses everything and is still able to praise God.
-I haven't been to church in a month. I am pretty excited to go this Sunday and teach my children's church class.
-The hubby & I have been reading a devotional a few nights a week before bed. It is Devotions for Couples by Patrick Morley and I would recommend it.
-I had atleast two "pity party" days over the last month. These are days where I let myself be sad. Ha. For those days, I didn't really think my knee would get any better. I thought that I might have to deal with pain for my life.
-I haven't done too much! Ha. I usually try to bake cookies for neighbors and friends as a ministry. I haven't baked in a month!
-I was able to send two amazing capes our friend's children. I would HIGHLY recommend this website if you are looking for a great gift: http://tinysuperheroes.com. For each cape you buy, a cape goes to a child struggling with an illness gets one.
Around the house:
-I have plans to paint the front door bright blue. Hopefully that will happen before it snows.
-I have changed my sheets twice in the last month. That is literally all the cleaning I have done. My hubby is doing everything else. Ha.
Well, that is all I can think of. I'm looking forward to the next month. Thanksgiving is right around the corner!
