In the last month...

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 ( 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: 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!

  1. It's good to know that you are doing somewhat better and your sales are still coming in! I might look into purchasing a large lot of clothing and selling them individually! That's a great idea.

    Well all have our "down" days but you have to keep pushing!
