I know what you mean about figuring out the new routines.  I'm trying to get things figured out too.

I think your body is telling you to slow down? Need to delegate for new routine? Please try. Don't make us have to send get well cards and flowers to some hospital...Don't make me come down there. 

You know how I feel about warm humid weather.

Thanks. We were going through these to crop and find shots of each kid and group to frame photos for my parents. Have been asked for new ones for about three, four years now. Maybe longer. So since Mike was already doing that I had him do this too.

He is a dream compared to three teenagers. Now that I think of it that implies to life in general. LOL

Funny story about spraining my knee.  People always ask me how I did it, because they know I have a farm and all.  I tell them about how I have a feral cat that's almost 17 and has long hair, and that she has quit grooming herself.  Right there everyone starts nodding(They are pretty sure how this story is going to go).  I continue to tell them that she got pretty matted because she doesn't tolerate being brushed.  Three strokes and then she will claw you.  More nodding, they will give themselves a headache soon.  I continue saying I sat on the floor to cut out some of the mats, figuring I know I won't get very far.  The nodding just got very vigorous, and they start to ask if I was clawed up very badly.  No, not at all, just the opposite.  She liked it so much that she made me work on her for 3 hours sitting Indian style on the floor.  I couldn't get up after that.  The next day my knee was slightly swollen, but not bad at all, so I just kept going.  Two days later, I was still having problems with a slightly swollen knee, but not much.  Well, I wasn't bending my knee right when I was walking and I kept catching my toe on every clump of grass and weed until I finally jerked my foot sideways and sprained my knee.  I'd blame it on the cat, but I had to have her put down last week, so I'm going to be magnanimous this week and take the blame myself.  My knee is much better, just not all the way better.  It got weak while I was wearing a knee brace, so I'm doing some therapy on it.

The PVD is somewhat normal for extremely nearsighted people of my age and is only slightly irritating.  I had 8 weeks of reduced activity for my knee and just when I started doing stuff again, I have 2 more weeks of reduced activity due to my eye.  I've gained 6 lbs.
Gotta love 'em.

oh GM. What am I going to do with you?
as far as the kitty goes I would have chalked it up to no good deed goes unpunished. But more importantly it was quality time with the kitty. And going out looking better also. 
Still the knee...
After twenty years of cleaning up to eighteen bathrooms a day. I get a random sharp hitch in one knee or the other on stairs. It is scary.
six pounds sounds manageable. Unless it affects getting into my clothes comfortably. Weight is not the issue it’s turning to lack of muscle fluffy. LOL

I'm working on gently regaining strength in the muscles around my knee. I can almost sit on the toilet without just dropping the last 3 inches or shifting my weight to the other leg...almost. That's the ruler I'm measuring my improvement with at the moment.
Gotta love 'em.
