Spring break is over... now time to get back to school kids!
I would have enjoyed spring break more if I could have done something. Like... walk. Anything. And by the time the 2 weeks is over, I'm usually more than ready for everyone to be back on a regular schedule. And I am.... but this time it's a little bittersweet (aka 'selfish') because I won't have all my little helpers to help me! Actually, I'm getting around a lot better. Cheating more than I should i.e. using 1 crutch so I can have 1 hand.
The boys are already off to school, Lucy starts swimming lessons today, and hubby leaves for out of town. Swimming lessons are at the gym which means I get to darken the doors again. I'm SO excited! I just need to smell it. I'm only going to ride the bike and stretch, but at least it's something.
As I mentioned before, I begin PT at the new place tomorrow. Hopefully I can set up recurring appointments for Tuesday and Thursday's while Lucy is at preschool. Thursday is also hubby's birthday and report cards come home (happy birthday honey!! I hope.) And then the grand finale' of the week - Friday is follow-up with the orthopedic surgeon to hopefully get off these crutches. (crossing everything) If he says I can't get off the crutches, I'm going to beg him to at least put me in a boot - PUH-LEEEZE! I need my hands back. And my life. I'll even promise to not run the month of April. Well, most of it? The half marathon ain't happenin' anyway, and honestly, I know I need more healing. I've come to grips with all of this. Believe me, I've had PLENTY of time to think things through.
