Exhausting, this week has been...
I realize this isn't really early and that most of you are probably up at 6 or earlier every day. But I've been sleeping till 9am regularly for over a year. Up until this week I still had Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday to sleep in. Before the accident I got up pretty early and stayed at work pretty late but I still had two days a week to sleep in. I'm not even working full time and I only get one morning to be lazy!
I've fallen asleep on the couch several nights this week. When that happens, my 15 minute ritual of bedtime becomes a 45 minute task. The increased activity is helping though. I stood without holding on to anything for 30 seconds at therapy and walked at least 500ft. without stopping for a break. That felt great!
I realized, as I was checking for comments each day, that I had not answered one of the previous questions in last weeks blog. The one that I did last Thursday. The one with the pictures. I kept checking that one, thinking that there might be more comments than usual. There were actually less than usual but that's beside the point. The question I hadn't answered was about how to contact me off of the blog.
Since the blog is a public venue, and I don't necessarily know who's out there, I'm not going to post personal contact info. If you are comfortable putting your e-mail address in a comment, I will try to contact you. However, many of you know that I'm very bad at responding to e-mails so, I'm not making any promises. If you're not comfortable putting your info in a comment the only thing I can recommend is to find out if the person that told you about the accident knows my e-mail or how to get it.
This is actually kinda important because some of the women at my Dad's office, the Puzzle Palace, have been scheming to find a way to assist me without giving me sweets. (veiled hint here) Instead of giving me sweets they've come up with a way to give me the instructions to make/bake the sweets and other things. They're compiling a recipe book which will be sold as a fund raiser and will also be entered into a contest. (The funds being raised will probably go towards the C-Legs (Argh! I'm goin' on a boat!) if you don't know what I'm talking about then you obviously didn't read last weeks update!) If you are interested in either contributing a recipe or puchasing one of the books, once it's done, then you should contact us.
An interesting dilemma we find ourselves in. I'm asking you to contact us but I'm not telling you how to contact us. A little detective work, on your part, will be required.
At least until the masterminds of this scheme tell me how people should contact us. Once I know that I'll post the info. The thing is I don't usually know what I'm going to say until I type it and 11:38pm is too late for me to call anyone from that generation. (or most of the people from mine too.)
Oh yeah! I got the new wheelchair today! I'd include a picture if I thought people would look at it...
Did you know there were pictures on the last update?
(That was for my Niece.)
Just a thought for you and anybody who reads the comments to consider.
Are you complaining about work? Just think, your taxes will be less this year.
And as far as contacting you, I have tried at the hotel. They seem to be very protective of you and won't release your information so, I'm going to put my personal info out there and hopefully, someone in your immediate family will respond.
please send me Jeremy's email address, I don't care if you don't respond, I just like writing too you.
Now, go get some sleep...
I will see if I can find some recipes, but Id be interested in a copy of it once its done. Im trying to become a good housewife and cook more, haha. Im pretty sure I have your email if it hasnt changed recently.
And boo on less lie-ins :P
Loadsa love annie x
PS Even when my son was first born I didn't get up at 6:30 or 7 and I still refuse to do so three years later. Yay for sleep! There is nothing better! I pray that you get to sleep in soon.
In the March issue of Reader's Digest magazine are several articles about medical breakthroughs. C-legs are mentioned and pictured in the article called Battlefield Advances. It's good to know more about c-legs...and we know they aren't cheap. I know the cookbook will be a huge success!
When Heather told everyone in choir about the recipe books, at least 5 people immediately said they wanted one....and we know there will be many more! I talked to your mom last night and will be sending her some family recipies.
