Cartilage Here and Gone Tomorrow

I know you all having been dealing with me whining about my knee and I do not see that ending any time soon. Sorry We usually go to CU Sports Medicine and Performance Center and for those who are not familiar with this place, I am the oldest and by far the most unfit in the waiting room. The place is packed with serious athletes, young people and if someone is my age or older who I swore they just ran a marathon with a torn ACL and with a smile. The doctor confirmed I my knee was bone on bone - arthritis in my knee and sent me on my way. I decided to try another doctor at another clinic. The new waiting room was completely different, I was seriously the youngest person in the waiting room.

Kondo No Go

I admit I am a little late to the game. I had heard of Marie Kondo (KonMari) and her books a few years ago, but I was not on the journey to conquer clutter. I go on the journey when Brad is yelling that our house is going to implode or I run out of closet/draw space.

I'm Back and Compressed

Holidays are done and so am I. I love Christmas a whole lot, but I was sick most of the holiday so between being sick, parties, me wearing other people's home decor on my head and work there was no blog. No worries because I am back to catch you up .... I am living a compressed life - literally. I wear compression hose, a compression knee brace and spanx. It is no wonder my head is about to explode. Usually I take the week of Christmas as vacation so I can after holiday shop, and basically do all things without Brad. Brad surprised me with taking vacation to be be home with me. Since he was home and I was sick there was no after holiday shopping and no other non-Brad activities. When I told
