“I’m sailing!!”

July 30th, 2008 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

For those “What about Bob” fans. I can elliptical! I got the call from the Dr. All I could think of was Bob and his baby steps, (the irony is killing me) and sailing. I freaking love that movie, I’ve been known to exclaim, “i’m sailin” when i’m not sailing but feel the urge. So, tomorrow, [...]

I’ve been two shoes, FWB for about 3 weeks now. Walking pretty good, slight limp sometimes as expected right? Yesterday I went for a walk outside on my lunch break.

I don’t know if any of you own Birkenstocks. You know, the hippie sandals that about 30% of Oregonians wear during the winter with wool socks? (I had a weak moment my freshman year of college and bought some.) Although I don’t wear mine alot, I do wear them around the house. I found mine this [...]

That’s what Dr Walton said.
I said, “Am I?” He laughs, looks at my husband and says, “Was that “timid” I just saw on her face?” My husband says, “I don’t know, I’ve never seen “timid” on her face”
