Happy New Year

So my new year has started off strangely.  I am still hobbled with pins in both feet due to some surgery I had on the 19th of December.  I should be able to get those pins out in about 10 days or so and then maybe start driving.  Until then, I'm pretty house-bound.  Thankfully my job lets me work from home, so I don't have to take more time off of work.  I do, however, have to keep my foot elevated most of the time, which, even though I have it setup so I can, it does make me twist a little oddly and now the small of my back is aching some.  Ahh, old age.  Here it comes. I will say that James has been fabulous helping me out with my gimpy feet.  I don't know what I'd do without him.

My son and his wife are going to find out the gender of their new baby sometime this afternoon.  I am excited to hear what it will be.  I don't know if I have a preference or not, though I'm leaning towards a girl, only because they already have a sweet little boy, Judah.  Either way it will be VERY loved.  I can't wait to hold them in my arms.  It looks like the due date will be towards the end of May.

My first day back at work has been interesting.  From the get-go there have been many fires to put out.  I don't know that it could have gone any worse than it did.  Oh well.  It is just a job, I keep telling myself.

I am really looking forward to getting healthy.  I can hardly wait to get walking again (2+ miles a day) and then hopefully actually start to jog too.  I'd love to be able to do the June Susan G. Komen 5K.  I'm not sure if my feet with be OK with that, but it is a goal I have and hope to meet if my feet will let me.  I also am going to look into some kind of volunteering with terminal cancer patients.  My journey with cancer has really put them on my heart and I really need to see about doing something on that score.

So, I am really looking forward to 2010!

Happy New Year everyone!

I was wondering yesterday why you didn't do walks in the mall anymore. I guess I forgot about your feet.

Well, you have a new grand daughter on the way!

Hey. I want to do that Susan G Komen thing too! How does that all work?
