It’s just 10:45 a.m. where I live and what a busy day it has been already. First of all, we were up by 7:30 a.m. for the scheduled tree men to come and cut down a big pine tree next to our deck. It’s been there for the 29 years (and before) since we built this house. So, it’s a sad thing, but its trunk is touching the house and with our windy winters and heavy snow, if it should fall, it’ll take most of the roof out. Well, the guy’s truck has some problem, so he might not make it till this afternoon or even not until Monday after work. It was originally scheduled for last Saturday and they just didn’t show up. It’s beginning to look like this tree just wasn’t meant to leave us yet, which is fine with me.
Our daughter got married today, so we have a reception to go to at 4:00. This wedding has been a long time coming (over three years now), so this is an exciting day for our family and a big event and there’s no way we are going to miss that reception, even if I am limping. So any tree cutting will have to be done without us present.
My left knee has been hurting for five weeks now, so I saw the orthopedic doc and the x-rays look great, but I “might” have a torn meniscus. So, it’s anti-inflammatory meds for two weeks, then a joint injection and then an MRI. Had to see the family doc at 9:00 this morning because I need to be back on my feet before my husband’s shoulder surgery on the 20th because he won’t be able to use his right hand/arm for two weeks which means I’m elected to do both my jobs and his.
But the good news is that the day is beautiful – perfect for a wedding – and we are so happy to welcome our new son-in-law into our crazy family, at long last. My daughter, mother of Pete, has not been happy for a very long time, so it is so wonderful to know that she is again and that she has a husband she loves to share the rest of her life with. For the first time in her life, she doesn’t have to work anymore. It’s all good.
