Such is life

Today - I will make an appt to have my knee looked at by a doctor.

I keep putting it off because I'm afraid I may need surgery and I don't want to do that, especially in the winter. Using crutches on ice is not a great idea. Plus the end of the year is the busiest time and I know I'll be missing some work......yet if I don't do it, I will continue to have sharp pain in my knee which causes me to walk funny which causes me to have sore hips and lower back. And the knee is not getting any better on it's own, it's getting worse.

Today - I will get over being cranky about my job. I will accept my circumstances and do the best job that I can do regardless of what goes on around me. I've been in a bit of a funk for over a year and I need to let it go. This self-pity thing gets old, plus you feed off it and it just gets worse.

Today - I will quit procrastinating. (ha! That will take more than just a one-line statement on a blog)

That's all folks. I'm off to get in the shower and go to work. I'm having to "have a little talk" with myself to get me moving this morning. I would rather go back to bed.

ps It's only 1 degree outside today. Maybe that's why I'm having a hard time leaving my warm house.

Brrrrrrr. It is cold there I won't complain about our windy cold weatehr since it is only a bit above freezing here. Take care.

I cannot imagine getting up to one degree! I'd stay in bed all winter long. I do hope your knee can be fixed in a timely manner that will not disrupt your life too much.
be gentle with yourself. Hugs from me.

it would be tough to have surgery any time of the year, but I would rather do it in the winter so I could have my summer to play... but, then there is the cabin and snowmachining... decisions decisions. Maybe they can fix it with a laser or something that is easy to heal!!
keep us posted!

I have a knee problem too and deal with it with Aleve but I can't stand on it too long.
I hate to think of operations.People jump too fast instead of making sure it's the right thing to do and doctors like to chop instead of taking time to heal because time is money.

Why scrape for hours and put in new cartilege when you can chop off a bone and stick in a metal piece.
It has to be redone in 10 years and that means more money.
I don't know. For me I rather go slow on all this.

Is it "Hank" that's acting up? or the other knee? Your life at work will get better soon. Or you can be like me and run away to WI. I have an extra bed, come on down!

I like Krissy's idea. You can have the surgery and then come down to WI to rest up at Krissy's house.

Just do the surgery. In the end your knee will thank you! You're too young for stuff like this Patty.

These bodies of ours can take a lot of ware and tear, but sometimes, they just need some help.

I like Krissy's idea away to WI:)
