Yeap it sure is..Tuesday again!! Time for Tuesday Tidbits!!
Don't know quite what to do about this Tuesday Tidbits because I am STUCK here in this house with a BUM KNEE!! You see we live up 14 steps!! To get down to the garage and family room I have to go down those steps!! ALL of them!!! I have found that just putting both feet on one step at a time works well!! I guess I will learn how!!

I do have GOOD NEWS!! My doctor's nurse called this morning and has an appointment for me at the orthopedist this next Monday afternoon!! YES!! I just WANT TO KNOW what i have done to make so much pain in my knee!! Now I just sit and put frozen peas on my knee and hope that the pain will not get too bad. It is when I am standing for long periods of time that my knee just screams at me.

It is another beautiful day here!! Just gorgeous!! I would say in the high 60's!! We still have our windows open!!

I am so happy this week for Jen over at a work in progress. She is doing so well with her CI implant!! She is hearing things that she has not heard in a long time!! What a miracle for her.

I am also happy that Kimmy from Snickerdoodles finally is back to blogging. She has been so sick for the majority of her life. I was worried about her but had no way to find out how she is. Finally she read my blog after about a 9 month absence!! You know we (I) get attached to people on here so I get really worried when one just drops out!! I have really no way to find out how they are. I am just glad that she is back now!!

Not much decorating going on here with me not being able to get down to the garage and pull stuff out!! I hope that something maybe gets done this weekend. Hubby is not a holiday decorater either!! We loved it when we had kids at home but now it just does not seem as much fun anymore!! I would love to get that special feeling of Christmas back....but it feels like it is gone!! I now can understand how my parents used to say that they did not like to decorate for Christmas!! I get it now guys!!

My washing is almost done for this week!! I have some folding to do and some of that 4 letter work...IRONING to do...actually PRESSING!! I just don't like to see my shirts all wrinkled!! I know most of you do not do anything with an iron anymore. I pull my clothes right out of the dryer and hang them up...but some of them are just well..messy looking!!

Not much of a post today!! Guess just to let you know that I am dealing with this stupid pain and waiting for Monday to come!!

Hope you are having the BEST OF DAYS!!

Hi Sandy, I sure hope your knee get to feeling better soon! Ouch how it must hurt.....

I am so glad I have the girls to help me with all the decoratng and grandkids or I don't know what I would do!

I am glad you get in to see the Doctor on Monday, too!!

I hear from Denise every day by E-mail and she was so sick yesterday and I didn't hear from her today so now I am worried she is worse.... We sure do get attached to our blogging friends for sure!! I bet Donetta might know how she is, they phone each other! I am on a mission to find out if she is okay.... Love and Hugs, Carolyn

So sorry to hear about your knee. Mike and I can certainly relate to your pain. Hope it gets better. I really over did it this past 10 days, but it was fun. I've got some new pictures posted. Feel better...gotcha prayed up.

Susan said...

I'm sorry to hear the knee is not better...I was picturing you having to do like my boys used to do when they were little...scooting down those stairs on your rear. Seriously, I hope it doesn't come to that!! In any case, I'm praying for you.

Hugs to you!!

:-) Susan

Hi Sandy, I hate to hear that your knee is not better...Get ready for a MRI next week...What Doc. are you going to see on Monday?? It takes time to see someone and then wait for something to be done about it..Keep using the bag of peas on your knee and take some pain medicine..If you need me to take you to the Doc. let me know...I was at Curves late today.
Take care of yourself ... Barb

I am really sorry to hear your knee is so painful. I hope you are able to get relief soon. My hubby has been in a lot of pain with plantar faciitus. Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment. =) I really have not been blogging as much with my husband home more. Life is busier..somehow..lol. Lots of Dr.appts and therapy appts. and his sister has been in the hospital 3 months now. Tomorrow she goes to the Dr. and we are all anxious to hear what he says. We hope she will get to go home with a visiting nurse but somehow I've doubts. Wishing you a blessed day tomorrow and lots of help with your knee situation. How frustrating this must be for you!

Your knee is really starting to worry me. You did this doing that Curves Smart Workout??? Sandy... didn't anybody tell you that Curves equipment is SAFE!??? You can't GET hurt... if you use it properly! You must have done this hoppin' off the recovery board the wrong way!!! I'm prayin' babe!

I continue to pray for your knee, love you.
