Wow, already over halfway through this month…time is flying.
Heading back to work tonight and want to make sure everything is up to date here on the blog…
1. Kimm had her follow-up appointment with the neurosurgeon on Monday. It’s hard to believe that she had her neck fusion surgery 8 months ago.
Just a day or two after the surgery…
Unfortunately, she has developed some new neck pain, similar to what she was experiencing before the surgery, accompanied by numbness in her hands. She also still has the lower back pain from when she fell and the MRI showed several bulging discs. The plan: a new MRI for the upper neck to check to see if there is anything new and PT for her back.
2. Finding flattering clothes is a lot harder than it seems. And I don’t have a lot of time for it. We had our trip to Target yesterday and I took a peek at some clothes, tried on some but got so frustrated, I said, “That’s it for today, I’ll come back tomorrow when I’m only focusing on the clothes.” (since we’d already been there over an hour and a half and we were getting hungry). Of course here it is, today and I have NO motivation to go back out and look at clothes, especially since I have to go to work tonight. So that will have to wait for a little bit.
3. Another week of Dancing with the Stars is done. D.L. Hughley was voted out…it was time as he was probably the poorest dancer of the remaining, but he sure could make me laugh 🙂
4. Steam ironing curtains is a PAIN in the neck…literally! When we bought our new curtains, we decided we would have to try to get something to get the deep creases out as they were very noticeable. We picked up a relatively inexpensive steamer from Target yesterday and I spent a good hour doing just two panels with okay results. Definitely better than before steaming, but not wrinkle free. I’m not sure if it is due to the thick linen-like fabric? All I know is that it’s very frustrating.
5. Spring is definitely on its way. I saw my first big black fuzzy bumblebee the other day. And things are sprouting up all over!
